The table top is made from maple and purple heart. The base is made from scap wood (not sure what kind) and I used some oak plywood between the upright post. My ispiration came from “The Wood Wisperer” web site in which Mark made an end grain cutting board. This is my first project to post on this website.

That is a very nice looking table. I can’t stop looking at the top and trying to figure out just how you made that.

It was asked by Hawaiilad Larry how I made the top, one of the photos shows the first glue up in which the boards are glued in parallel positon. I then cut the glued up boards cross ways. I then fliipped every other one and glued them together which gave the checkerboard look. This was an end grain project, and if you go to the wood whisperer web site and watch the video about end grain cutting boards, it gives you step by step instructions on this process.
