The table on the principle of Tensegrity with their hands

Hello, dear readers and DIY!
Some of You have already heard, and perhaps seen the newfangled technique of making different furniture on the principle of “Tensegrity” (from the English word tension — tension).
At first, the design of such a product seems impossible, but the whole secret lies in the strained chains, threads, or ropes.
In this article, the author’s YouTube channel, “Greg’s Channel” will tell You how to make a table on this principle.
Стол на принципе тенсегрити своими рукамиMaterials.
— A wooden panel
Chains, screws with hook, washers, wing nuts
— Sandpaper, masking tape, PVA glue, a light oil wax.
The tools used by the author.
Manual mill, milling cutters under 6 mm shank
Bolt cutters, vise, clamp
Glue gun
Band saw, circular saw
Orbital sander
A Dremel, a drill, wood drill
— Tape measure, pencil, ruler, square, file, rasp, screwdriver, a ratchet, velour roller.
The process of making.
Thus, the main material for the table will serve as cemented and treated wooden panels.
The first parts that will make the author, are two arches in the shape of a parabola.
Mark the outlines of these elements, he begins to cut them on the bandsaw.
Стол на принципе тенсегрити своими рукамиСтол на принципе тенсегрити своими рукамиСтол на принципе тенсегрити своими рукамиUnfortunately the author saw into disrepair in the process of cutting out (it was probably for the best, because such a machine has not all of You, and the wizard wouldn’t have shown an alternative way of cutting).
Of course, it would be possible to do the usual electric jigsaw, but it is also not there.
So, in this case, comes to the aid of a hand router with a straight cutter. First, the author cuts away the excess wood from the outer parts of the arch. Then the edge of the slice is processed with a file.
Стол на принципе тенсегрити своими рукамиСтол на принципе тенсегрити своими рукамиSimilarly, inverting the workpiece, is removed and the internal section.
Стол на принципе тенсегрити своими рукамиСтол на принципе тенсегрити своими рукамиСтол на принципе тенсегрити своими рукамиYou will also need two curved uprights in the form of halves of the arch.
Стол на принципе тенсегрити своими рукамиСтол на принципе тенсегрити своими рукамиAll surfaces are sanded with an orbital machine.
Стол на принципе тенсегрити своими рукамиFor the table top and the base of the Desk wizard was already ready two of the same shield.
The first thing he noted on the table of the centers of the bolt holes.
Стол на принципе тенсегрити своими рукамиСтол на принципе тенсегрити своими рукамиAt each of the corners of countertops, with the top side, drilled two holes of sweat under. To control the depth the author put the mark on the drill.
Стол на принципе тенсегрити своими рукамиСтол на принципе тенсегрити своими рукамиThen installed a thin drill bit equal to the diameter of the body of the bolt, and powerleveld through holes.
Стол на принципе тенсегрити своими рукамиСтол на принципе тенсегрити своими рукамиWith the underside of the tabletop, at least the holes, inserted the bolts with a hook, and the top is embedded washer.
Стол на принципе тенсегрити своими рукамиСтол на принципе тенсегрити своими рукамиСтол на принципе тенсегрити своими рукамиRemains loosely install and tighten the nut.
Стол на принципе тенсегрити своими рукамиСтол на принципе тенсегрити своими рукамиTo enhance the countertops, the author decided to attach around the perimeter of the bottom four ribs of slats.
At the ends of the slats are drilled holes for flush screw heads, and in the top pilot holes for them.
Then the slats are screwed to the tabletop with screws.
Стол на принципе тенсегрити своими рукамиСтол на принципе тенсегрити своими рукамиСтол на принципе тенсегрити своими рукамиСтол на принципе тенсегрити своими рукамиFor fastening the arches to the table top, conventional screws are not enough. The author had to cut Dremel a groove for a flat slot in the screw heads.
Стол на принципе тенсегрити своими рукамиСтол на принципе тенсегрити своими рукамиСтол на принципе тенсегрити своими рукамиAt the ends of the arches are drilled the pilot holes for the screws, and they attach to the top.
Стол на принципе тенсегрити своими рукамиСтол на принципе тенсегрити своими рукамиСтол на принципе тенсегрити своими рукамиThe author forgot to round out the faces of the arches, and decided to do it on weight… a risk taker.
Of course, this operation must be performed on the fixed workpiece. This uses radius milling cutter with thrust bearing.
Стол на принципе тенсегрити своими рукамиСтол на принципе тенсегрити своими рукамиNow installed conical cutter with bearing, and she handled the entire top perimeter of stoleshnicy.
Стол на принципе тенсегрити своими рукамиThe countertop is flipped upside down, and at the top of the arches drilled holes. They installed the bolts with a hook on which nagisetty wing nut. These nuts will stretch the chain.
Стол на принципе тенсегрити своими рукамиСтол на принципе тенсегрити своими рукамиСтол на принципе тенсегрити своими рукамиThe entire surface countertops processed light oil-wax using a velour roller.
Стол на принципе тенсегрити своими рукамиСтол на принципе тенсегрити своими рукамиNow, while the absorbed oil-wax, you can start making the base of the table.
For ease of cutting (it will have to do without “ribbons” and jigsaw), the master decided to make a template for the milling of MDF sheet. First, he cut the MDF sheet to the size of the panel.
Стол на принципе тенсегрити своими рукамиСтол на принципе тенсегрити своими рукамиThen on the worksheet, the layout of the contours of the future of the U-shaped pattern. Long cuts are made with hand-held circular saw along the aluminum area, performing the role of guide.
Стол на принципе тенсегрити своими рукамиСтол на принципе тенсегрити своими рукамиСтол на принципе тенсегрити своими рукамиFinish off the pattern in the inner corners had to Dremel.
Bumps on the slices, left a circular saw, even with a file.
Стол на принципе тенсегрити своими рукамиСтол на принципе тенсегрити своими рукамиСтол на принципе тенсегрити своими рукамиThe author put on the straight shank of the cutter bearing and fixed with the clutch serving to limit the depth of drilling. So he got a copy cutter. Do not repeat this error!
Стол на принципе тенсегрити своими рукамиСтол на принципе тенсегрити своими рукамиSecuring the template to the panel clamps, he started milling. However, the “prikolotne” bearing couldn’t take the pressure and burst. While mill went to the side, and found that the tree was also damaged. Therefore, the author changed the template of MDF, and made the Central part of the base is curved inwards.
Yes, copy mill he had purchased in the store. According to this link she number 29.
Стол на принципе тенсегрити своими рукамиСтол на принципе тенсегрити своими рукамиСтол на принципе тенсегрити своими рукамиСтол на принципе тенсегрити своими рукамиAt the base are drilled holes for mounting screws hooks, and a pair of racks.
Стол на принципе тенсегрити своими рукамиСтол на принципе тенсегрити своими рукамиThe side of the base are reinforced by the rails from the upper side. Also bolted the rack to it.
Стол на принципе тенсегрити своими рукамиСтол на принципе тенсегрити своими рукамиRod crossbar, fixed on the uprights by the clamps, and it marked the contours of the curves of the uprights.
Стол на принципе тенсегрити своими рукамиСтол на принципе тенсегрити своими рукамиThis workpiece is cut by the crossbar curved shape.
Стол на принципе тенсегрити своими рукамиСтол на принципе тенсегрити своими рукамиСтол на принципе тенсегрити своими рукамиFor fastening the crossbar to the posts, they are countersunk holes. Drilling should start at a right angle to the drill bit went to the side.
Стол на принципе тенсегрити своими рукамиСтол на принципе тенсегрити своими рукамиСтол на принципе тенсегрити своими рукамиIt is to fix bolts with hooks at the base and upper parts of the uprights.
Стол на принципе тенсегрити своими рукамиСтол на принципе тенсегрити своими рукамиСтол на принципе тенсегрити своими рукамиTo the top fell sideways when tightening the chains, the author holds it with both sides of the chair backs.
Стол на принципе тенсегрити своими рукамиСтол на принципе тенсегрити своими рукамиHaving measured the desired length of chains, the excess cut off with bolt cutters.
Стол на принципе тенсегрити своими рукамиEverything is ready, you can hang the chain over the hooks, and pull them, twisting the wing nuts.
Стол на принципе тенсегрити своими рукамиСтол на принципе тенсегрити своими рукамиСтол на принципе тенсегрити своими рукамиThe holes on the top of the countertop, the author closes with the plugs, putting them on the hot glue.
Стол на принципе тенсегрити своими рукамиСтол на принципе тенсегрити своими рукамиThe author also strengthened the connections of the columns with base unit with two sides of the steel angles.
Стол на принципе тенсегрити своими рукамиHere’s an interesting table was the wizard.
Стол на принципе тенсегрити своими рукамиСтол на принципе тенсегрити своими рукамиСтол на принципе тенсегрити своими рукамиСтол на принципе тенсегрити своими рукамиСтол на принципе тенсегрити своими рукамиСтол на принципе тенсегрити своими рукамиI thank the author for the implementation of interesting design on the principle of Tensegrity.
All good mood, sound health, and interesting ideas!
