I am considering making a bartop out of numerous shorts of native and
exotic woods. I thought it'd be a great look and a way to incorporate
my interests. I'm wondering, though, what kinds of problems I could
expect since I've yet to compile a list of woods and it's going to
include a lot of woods I've never worked with. Should I look for
certain characteristics to stay away from or gravitate towards? What
about the joinery involved to mesh the different types. How about a
good retailer for buying the selection from? I was also hoping to
come up with a classy way to mark each piece with the name. I'm not
sure I want a whole bunch of little plaques, but I don't trust my
woodburning handwriting skills. I'm sure I'd make a mess. Obviously
I'm still in the planning stages so I'm hoping we can figure something
out to make this work.
Thanks for any help!
