Thanks Lmo

Here are a few more details.
Also my floor is epoxy on concrete. Like polished concrete with out the final cut back.

Thanks again. I've just finished a dining table I'll put it up when I get some good shots

theha your dovetails are superb. Excellent work.

The finger pull is walnut? If so, splendid job on the thin wall cylinder.

Any particular reason the sides are not on top of the bottom? It seems the load transfer would not be ideal the way you have it. On the other hand, it makes the design more intriguing as shown by my question.

And for a mundane question, what did you use for runners on the door slides?

Thanks iab for the interest.
Finger pull is walnut lathed and drilled out. I really wanted to place them in from the rear of the sliding door so give a inlay appearance but decided on this way in the end.

The sides being the way they are is fairly standard practice for me anyway.

the slides are in coloured flexible poly tracks and the actual runners are adjustable inserts. Makes a very smooth free moving door.

Recent coffee table I designed:
Walnut / Clear glass
Image
Maple / Smoked glass
Image
The bolt in the center holds the piece together, and steel dowels act as spacers.
Image

I designed it to be as minimal in parts and waste as possible. And it's totally collapsible, even if you live in a small apartment like me. :D
Image

I still haven't really figured out how to strengthen the joinery yet. I've only tested it to about 170lbs, and generally furniture of this type should hold 200lbs easily. I think a simple powder coated sheet metal bracket could complement the design, but I'm still working out the best way to strengthen it, without making the simple functional design more complicated.

@rsusuki, it is a beautiful & mature design.

Since the design looks So complete. It's difficult to add or modify something to attend the joinery requirement.
I will settle for 170lbs...if it is OK.

Some options..
1. Add a metal sheet as a stopper.
2. Go for the square hole (or non circular shape) and sq. rods attaching them.

Here are few quick googles..
Square Hole Broach
Mortise Chisle

Try tighter tolerance in the joint, should help some. Should be a pretty firm press fit, it looks like I can see a gap in your photo.

Made a bed frame. We are upgrading to king.

(I am embarrassed to follow that chair. It's awesome.)
