Great stuff, ohadvr! Interesting methods.

Is this a plank? Or will it have a stab?

You sheeted bottom with obechi and then installed tubes. How will you sheet the top? Another obechi sheet? Glass? Something else?

I like the diamond cutouts with the supporting wood sides. Nice idea for spreading loads. Looking forward to watching this build.
