Bamboo Lock Table

Gizmodo reports: [edited]

Like a giant version of one of those wooden puzzles you have to figure out how to assemble, J.P. Meulendijks' Bamboo Lock Table is held together in a manner that will have your dinner guests scratching their heads.

The three sections that make up the table's frame are assembled from layers of bamboo strips sandwiched together, but only secured at the ends so they can bow out in the middle. This allows them to hug each other in a beautiful three-way leg lock that almost looks like an optical illusion.

And it can be yours for just over $2,500 with a glass top, or $2,700 if you opt for a matching bamboo dining surface.
