This is my co-workers table that we made after work with some scrap flooring. (We work for a wood flooring company) Tony does not have the internet so he asked me to post this.
All of the pieces are either Ipe, Brazilian cherry, and Red oak; the hexagons are actually 6 triangles with the center hexagon being BC and all of the others Ipe. The solid border is BC and the triangle border past that is Ipe and Oak. Dimensions: 54” form point to point across and the boards are 3/4” thick flooring on 1/2” OSB sub floor. Sanded to 120 grit and finished with one coat of Shellac and 3 coats of satin poly. Hope you enjoy!
