Well, this is how I started my wood working hobby. This table was built with one circular saw, a drill and a sander.
I did not know how to do joints and stuff, so I made several shortcuts.
It was built in the summer of 2007.

Hey this is great stuff. You did great job.
From the picture, I cannot clearly figure out whether you embeded the tiles flush the table top or a little bit proud.
Thanks for sharing.

The tiles do jut out about 1/8” from the surface. Each tile is 3” x 6”. The opening is 12” x 24”. The tiles are not fixed. The surface below is sealed. However, there is a very tight fit.
The tiles can be pried out and reconfigured. We change the pattern every now and then to give a new look.

Thanks for the reply Ashish.
I think the idea of changing the tiles pattern is great. And once a while you can put a picture, drawing or inlay pattern and replace the tiles with glass.

Take care and work safe.
