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 www.exoticwoodsusa.com). 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.
