Walnut Hallway Table Topper

Topper for a metal hallway table topper I found.

Step 1:

Found a piece of walnut with an interesting graining pattern and cut it into 3/4" strips and mixed them up.

Step 2: Glue Up

Glued them together and clamp them up while keeping them flat.

Step 3: Finish

I used vinyl sealer and precatalyzed lacquer.

Step 4: Here It Is

I just put small adhesive clear rubber feet on the bottom of it and set it in place. Thanks for looking y'all.

    I did not attach it at all. I put some small clear rubber pads down so it wouldn't slide, and just placed the wooden top on top of the table.
    I considered screwing through the metal top, underneath, unto the wood, but wanted to avoid doing that in case I ever decided to remove the top or something.
    I's been over a year and it hasn't moved.

    Table looks great! The metal frame looks to be a 55 gallon aquarium stand. Those are readily available.

    Thanks! I didn't make it but I refurbished it. I found it in a field of kudzu. You can see some photos here if you're interested: http://imgur.com/a/8y8ZA
