There is nothing really tricky or challenging about this build, but it requires patience and attention to detail.The top is made from plywood, so it will stay flat and smooth and you don't have to worry about solid wood expansion and contraction.
It is built using a torsion box construction.Strips of inexpensive 3/4″ (18mm) plywood are sandwiched between two sheets of thin, 1/4″ (6mm) plywood.There are a lot of advantages to this method of making a table top: The tabletop can be thick (1-1/4″, 3 cm in my case) without the need for thick lumber.
