house of cards table

It takes patience to produce a house of cards. How about making a table out of balancing a slab of glass on a couple of houses made from cards then?

This house of cards table is a creative and clever illusion conjured by designer Mauricio Arruda. From the outside, it looks deceptively like a slab of glass is sitting precariously on its two struts made out of playing cards. However, the 13:1 scaled playing cards are actually made from welded steel plates, allowing the table to support a maximum threshold of 550lbs.

Not too shabby at all, considering its somewhat unstable fa├žade.
