I liked the first patchwork coffee table that I made so much that I made another one, with improvements of course.
I started with a lot of different exotic woods (thanks to I started with 2” thick blocks of wood and resawed them to 1” (so I have enough left over to make another table).
The table top consists of 27 different kinds of wood. The outermost wood in the frame is Sapele which is what I made the legs and skirt with.
Festool Dominoes are used throughout the table. Finished with teak oil.

I haven’t had any expansion problems with the table top. There are around 100 dominoes holding the wood together.

There are additional photos in my blog

Woods: Zapote, Lignum Vitae, Granadillo, Katalox, Mora, Jicarillo, Macadamia Nut, Bocote, Osage Orange, Chechen, Marblewood, Redheart, Satinwood, Padauk, Ambrosia Maple, Cocobolo, Black Mesquite, Yaje, Purpleheart, Zebrawood, Satine, Burmese Blackwood, Guapinolillo, Bubinga, Lacewood, Birdseye Maple, and Sapele.

Nice, i really like that pattern.
Have you had any problem with wood movement at all with the outside being framed in?

Fantastic idea, and the table itself is lovely, not just the top!
