These Chopped Tables Have Surfaces Made Entirely of Severed Sticks

You might think that you need some sort of flat surface in order to construct an effective table, but these Chopped Tables demonstrate that this is certainly not a requirement. Only two types of components make up the quirky stools, and neither one would seem to suffice as a functional panel.

Circular clusters of thickset lumber dowels have been bound tightly together using just simple metal rings. The treated timber branches are all smoothed into perfect cylinders but take a range of different diameters and lengths. At least four of the long wooden posts measure the same height, in order to provide sufficient elevation and steady support as the Chopped Tables' legs. Having likely assembled the pieces upside-down, Yuval Tal has had them all meet flush at the top to create even surfaces.
