Thanks Brian. the only thing I don’t want to happen in the appearance is a lot of color variation every 1”. But that really shouldn’t be a problem I guess if using consistent coloring of woods like maple, white oak, beech.

I’ve heard arguments of using softer woods for a top that is softer than the wood you are building furniture with. I’m not too worried about that. I’ll probably get what I can get my hands on for the cheapest. Likely end up being SYP. Unless I can get some soft maple for a good deal.

rwe2156, yes you are correct. Good advice for laminating thinner stock.
