chopped tables

by Grace Bonney

I’ve got a fondness for wooden dowels because they’re one of my favorite raw materials to work with for DIY projects. You can dip them in rubber, paint them, drill through to make a tent- they always feel full of possibility. Designer Yuval Tal decided to cut, paint and wrap them in a metal ring to create these beautiful tables that require no glue or screws for stability. Inspired by a color blindness test, Yuval created each beech wood table to have a unique top and offers them in three different sizes. I love the green and orange together, but they’d of course look cute all grouped together like the images above. If you’re interested in checking them out in more detail or ordering a table, click here to visit Yuval’s site.
