no previous part Part 1 of Patchwork Table series Part 2: Afghan Carpet Inspired »

Shown (not in order): Bubinga, Black Palm, Hormigo Negro, Ash, Lacewood, Padauk, Indian Laurel, Bloodwood/Satine, Yucatan Rosewood, Wenge, Bocote, Purpleheart, Bolivian Rosewood, Cocobolo, Yellowheart, Brazilian Cherry. I’ll also add some Douglas Fir and Spruce.

The plan is to use these 18 different wood varieties to make a patchwork table top.

I cut the pieces for the table top and laid them out where I want them. I removed the 3 domestic woods and will use just the 15 exotic woods for the table top. The rest of the table (legs, etc.) will likely be Douglas Fir.

I decided to frame it with Spruce. The rest of the table will also be Spruce.

A sneak peak. Getting closer. I’m proud of the legs; my first attempt at strong shapely legs, I think they turned out good. (It’s nice having the right tools.)
