Thank you my friends.

@eddomak you think a great deal of me. I'm just a boy who's playing and learning the hard way. Anyway here are few points which led me during choosing the working method:
1. Customer is not willing to pay for solid oak and his request is to have perfectly smooth surface of the table.
2. With large-scaled materials MDF is used ordinary 0,5 mm veneer. I wanted to use decorative 1 mm thick veneer with beautiful texture.
3. As you could noticed in the outer strip there are 3 pieces of magnets glued inside for connecting the tables into various configurations. I wanted edge band with magnet to be covered by veneer.

That's why I've opted for: the edge band - 2 pieces of 7x36mm with magnets glued in the middle, 4 pieces of 6 mm thick MDF laminations with double side glued veneer of 1mm + middle square. This whole is carried by 800x800mm base board of 19mm.
I can tell that it is a complicated method but if we looking at the shape stability, probably the most reliable one. Solid oak could cause some problems in composition like this by the time.
Next complication was client's requirement for table reassembling in order to be able to transport it.
Here I was glad to use connecting system by Festool and I need to acknowledge that it works perfectly. Anyway thanks to it one table is composed of 108 pieces and all (12 tables) of 1296 pieces and that's quite slaughtering. I believe that it will serve well the owner for years.
Thank you for your interest and wish you good luck with your own projects.

Hello everyone.
Today there is a fun little thing with the use of domino pin and clamex. It works great.

Well I like the ideas that flow out of your efforts... and the boots are nice ;)

I would not have considered the domino, but it seems super logical seeing how you used it in action.
Where did you get that oval chrome plated tube from?

@Holmz  ,  @schneems

friends, this type is the most available assortment in Slovakia delivered in length of 3 meters.

Now let's move on. How to solve a lone boy's effort when working with EGGER large-area material?

I had one idea...

Before you kick your boots up and move on...
What is the name of the oval tube product you used for the dress hanger?

[/Sound of record scratching]

Looks like you sorted out the panel tilter, and it was nicely done as well.

Another little idea. I like THULE bicycle carriers. I did something for their cool storage.
I wish you a nice weekend to everyone.

@Holmz Hi, thanks. [wink]
 I used domino pins 14 mm and epoxy adhesive. Pressing was a bit complicated.

@Untidy Shop  [big grin]

The greatest opponent is probably a man for himself, is not he?  [wink]

Today I have a great joy. I would set up a thread of nice old machines but I will put it here. I have the honor to introduce to you the mother of all track saws. And she makes clean cuts in melamine. Festool can only dream about. It's eighteen years back. Holzher produced beautiful machines for the carpenters. The price at that time for me was investment capital. I sold the stereo in my car for her.   I lost her years ago. A now is here. Her condition is desperate, but I'll change it. Nice day to everyone.
