I really wanted to make a table with a top that looks like a quilt…this project provided the perfect opportunity, the top is solid wood with biscuits holding the pieces together and then an edge banding around the outside

these are great.
Do you have a quilt to match the pattern?

A great mixture of wood. Is the quilt solid, or veneer?
Congratulations on a fine project.

Very nice… and unique among the entries.

Though sleeping under a matching quilt may not be so comfortable ;)

Beautiful Daniel and great craftsmanship. The way you approached the tops is really distinctive. Thanks so much for sharing with us.
