I was initially thinking that the table you've linked to is not truly made of all walnut "sticks" and featured a mosaic of short end-grain pieces of walnut on a hollow cylinder. However, it looks like this maker is really into walnut and wouldn't be cutting corners like that.

Were I to make this, I'd likely skip the joinery and go with glue.

Any way you go, I'd suggest just cut a bunch of pieces to length, lay out a length of a thin fabric mesh, place the sticks on the mesh, and then roll it up like a sleeping bag to get the desired size, and adjust placement to get the pieces to "fit" together better.

The big problem I see with a table like that is that you are likely to loose change, keys, jewelry, etc. down those gaps between the sticks...
