Herringbone Table Question
I am making a herringbone style coffee table for my wife for X-mas. My original plan was to do a herringbone layout that would be glued and pin nailed to a piece of plywood or MDF. This would then have a frame that surrounds the table top with mitered corners. My concern is that the seasonal expansion and contraction of the wood will blow out the corners of the miter and break the glue bond from the plywood over time. Does anyone have any experience with these kind of tables and have any recommendations? The material is quarter sawn white oak. The general table top size is 48" x 36". Thanks in advance.
