    I was in a new Hilton in NYC . In the lobby they had four different sizes of this coffee table. This one is 3' X 3' X 1'. It's factory made, cut pieces, I haven't figured out how the cuts were done. Maybe done with a CNC driven saw, but.....what do you guy think?

    Anyone done something like this.

    It look like if you cross cut a bunch of 1" pieces off your splits, then fit them together, like tiles.

    I'd bet they're hand-fitted, not cnc'd. Having worked in a pattern shop for a long time, I'm guessing it's a guy with a pencil, a bandsaw and a disc sander. After it's assembled, run the whole thing through a wide-belt

    Do you have a picture taken from the side? I'm curious about how it's constructed, how the weight is supported, etc.

    That is cool-looking, but all I can think of is that my stacks were packed that tight they would take a lot longer to dry out! I must have the "seasoning fever", which is contagious from this website.

    In the picture you can see the side of a smaller table. I tried lifting a corner, it was heavy. I thought they were full length splits. Next time i'm in there I will take a closer look and ask where it came from. There must be 4 pads to elevate the cornors, or you would never get it level.

    What's an 'extra' split?

    If I had to make that I'd probably run each split side over a joiner. Once they are all flat, piece them together and cut the sides even. Looks really good though.
