    How stable is it in both the small and large mode? How does the stiffness of the whole thing compare to normal table?

    Impressive table, I applaud your persistence & craftsmanship. It is a very challenging project. It works as kinetic art but I wonder how you could cleanly resolve the surface edges & top for a finished product. The cost must be prohibitive for most & thus you have an extremely expensive table that can seat 4-6 but is somewhat oxymoronic in essence. Otherwise very cool.

    Very impressive that you were able to build that on your own. Wow ! You found great Solutions for Problems that appeared and there were some very critical measurements to make. Alltogether: Absolutely fantastic Workpiece !!!

    I like the idea, but I would have tried to cut the layers all out of one piece so the grain aims in the same direction no matter which size table you're using. Nice build!

    What makes this different then a fletching table? You did an amazing job but you didn't come up with this design.
