This table top was put together in a way I have never done before. I took some scrap hardwood and glued and clamped together. After drying I planed and cut it down to get my size I needed. Then usining mahogany 1/4 ply I cut and pieced them together to make it look like a solid hardwood table top. I finished it with a dark walnut stain and a satin laquer with almost ten coats of laquer and sealer together to get it an almost 1/4 inch of protection. Mainly from kids lol.

It looks good, but I don’t understand how you used the plywood.

Please describe how and where you put the plywood and hardwood, as I’m confused.

Did you sort of make a “frame” out of the hardwood and then put the plywood in the middle of that?

What i did was make a full base out of hard wood and then cut and piece the plywood together all around to make it look like a solid cutting board I glued it all on with just wood glue and the puttied all the seems and the finished it

Interesting approach.

Do you have any pictures of the process? Or maybe any better/more close-up shots of the edges, top, etc.? I’d be curious to see any other pictures you have either along the way, or after completion.

no sorry this was the only photo i took. the edges were done out of whatever piece was on the top at that section to get the solid look. the plywood edge that was seen i actually just took some sharpies and drew some grain in to make it match it was quite a process but it looked good in the end
