I made an octogon coffee table years ago in High school woodworking—in solid maple. All the grain was pointing radially inwards like yours. Humidity affected the outer perimeter more than the center and it cracked. I was looking for a summer job and had pictures of things I had made and some samples. One of pictures was of the octogon table. I went to a cabinet shop and he took one look at the picture and he said “It cracked didn’t it” But I did get a job for the summer. Learned a lot. Hope yours isn’t solid wood.

like to see some clearer pictures? How did you cope for expansion and contraction?

to DocSavage45 —I will post some better pictures. The starburst center circle is veener cut about 3/16 in thick and glued to plywood. The starburst is made of 8 wedges cut from a single board so that they bookmatch one to the next. The circle banding is bubinga and was a challenge to inset bending it around as I tapped it into a groove. The outer ring is a separate piece using mulitple glued up sections.
