We decided that we would build the Epic Gaming Table using Mahogany and Maple.  These light and dark woods allowed us to make the various features of the design stand out so the first step was to cut about a billion little 1 inch by 1 inch squares that would form the map surface.  A generic grid would give us a blank slate to work with for drawing out any maps we might need.  The plan is to put a piece of glass over the grid that can be written on with dry erase markers.

Cutting all these little squares was a huge pain.

Each tile was hand cut and sanded.  We needed about 1,200 total for our grid.

The tiles were alternated to create the grid.
