The patchwork section is made with Black Palm, Bloodwood/Satine, Bocote, Bubinga, Brazilian Cherry, Cocobolo, Hormigo Negro, Indian Laurel, Lacewood, Padauk, Purpleheart, Bolivian Rosewood, Yucatan Rosewood, Wenge, and Yellowheart.

These 15 exotic woods were cut into 74 random sized pieces and then put together with Festool Dominos and glue. I made the drawer pull with the few scraps that remained.

The rest of the table is Spruce. Finished with Teak oil.

Reminds me of a quilt. It’s an interesting concept!

I bet that Domino made the job a lot easier. Did you use the Domino after you cut the smaller pieces, or did you measure out on the longer boards, use the Domino, then cut them into the 74-smaller pieces?

I love everything about it, the different species, the leg and drawer design. It is such an original. You did a great job on the design.
