This is not quite what you were asking for, but it's a table that I made for my son.



The first picture is of the table top with an edge around it, with veneer on that surface. The second picture is of the inset that has a chess board on one side. The third picture is the reverse of the chess table.

So what I did was just make a table and put an edge around it that is holding the insert. A small finger groove is placed in the inset to allow it to be lifted up and reversed.
