A coffee table inspired by George Nelson’s bench that I made out of scrap wood. Oak, poplar, walnut, ply, mystery wood, etc. Turned the boards on edge, laminated together and had fun. Finished with shellac and gf’s polyacryilic.

Love it. I’m also on the path of big laminated boards. If all you have is little sticks break out the glue and make a big board from the little sticks.

Do you mind posting a few more pictures? How did your terminate the ends? Did you make breadboards? Is a glue-up like this more prone to swelling since the width of the strips are along the thickness.
I have a dining table project somewhere in my future and would appreciate more posts on this

Thanks Everyone, you are all too kind.Indianwoodchipper, I am sorry but I do not have any more pics and I no longer have the table. On this table I cheated in the lamination process and shot brad nails along with glue. I just cut the ends with a circuluar saw. I then wrapped the top with thin strips of Ash. Glue with a few pin nails.
I also made a large dining room table using hundreds of pieces of scrap wood from pallets etc. all cut down, ripped and turned on edge to laminate together on top of a sheet of osb ply. I only used glue to laminate them together. Glue up was fun! I wrapped the outer edge with pine and a few brad nails. We have used the table for over 2 years without any problems with moving. I do live in the high desert so it goes from dry to unbelievably dry. Hope this helps and sorry I don’t have more pics.I also made one out of plywood strips which would probably be more stable.
