this table took a lot of time to make simply because i used what most people would consider scraps.Alot of patience was required to glue all the pieces together the only easy part was the legs because they are made only of Oak.

Beautiful table – but scraps???? In my shop, when it comes to hardwoods, I have big project pieces and little project pieces – all of my scraps are pine :-))

Very nice, I believe mixing of various woods one of my favorite things. Like you said, you can use up a lot of scraps that aren’t really scrap.

A nice job on the layers and a nice looking table Cassy. Did you use biscuits to join the various parts, or simply glue them together and clamp?

Very striking contrasts.

Did you build it up one piece at a time, or as one large panel all clamped at one time?

The finish looks great.
