I received the tile and the plan was to cut a mortise in the top and drop it in. I used a forstner bit to hog out the bulk of the waste and used chisels to complete the job. The drill wandered and gouged the top outside of the mortise area. I thought okay, I can add a walnut inlay frame around the inset tile. Well lots of hemming and hawing about how well this would work and look. Finally decided to start the top over.
Took only a few hours of labor. This time I used a plunge router to cut the mortise. Worked better. It was a large area to cut with a chisel.
This is the bottom of the table top. The two large holes were so I could pop the tile out while working on the fit. When I was happy with the fit I glued in the tile using silicone.
The penny is something I saw another Lumber Jock do on this site. Add a penny with the year you built the project. Easier than branding.
