Walnut coffee table

This is a walnut coffee table I built for a fundraiser for dyslectic children a few years back. The walnut came from a tree I cut on my moms property. She wanted it removed because of her worried about breaking an ankle on the fallen nuts. After drying for 9 mos I started building with it.
This table has a radius to the top and the skirt is a bent lamination to match that curve. I build a jig so I could get the desired curve I wanted. Joints are mortice and tenon with figure 8 fasteners for the top. Finish is poly. Legs are from 8/4 stock I had sawed. I designed all components on cad software.

Nice flow, original leg shape and very well made, this side of the water it would be known as a side table, coffee tables here are usually 16 to 18" tall maybe due to smaller houses? What is a figure of 8 fastener? I use turn buttons for table tops.
