Plywood? Tabletop from Glueing Thin Hardwood Boards
Beginner woodworker here.
So I have a bunch of thinner boards from a past project. They’re mostly around 0.5″ thick, and rough sawn. My partner would like me to reduce the size of the lumber pile in the backyard, so I want to put these boards to good use. I’m thinking of making a coffee table, and glueing up a bunch of these thinner boards to make a tabletop that’s about 1″ thick.
The wood is Hophornbeam, and is open-pored. They’re originally from a guitar build project, used as a fretboard.
I’d like a gut check here. Does this approach ring any alarm bells for folks? Is there anything I should be mindful of when glueing so many layers of timber?
