This Space for Rent

Starting a new piece of carpentry.

A few weeks ago, I bought a mess of tiles at SCRAP in North Portland (the same trip where I bought the linoleum that I made into the workbench.) I was planning on using the tiles to put on the top of something; either a countertop or a tabletop.

They are two inch tiles, so this makes a 16" square tabletop. I'm trying to decide whether I should put a wood apron around the tiles or simply have the tiles cover the entire tabletop. If I put an apron around the tiles, then it can be used to play chess or checkers, but if I don't, then it's a lot easier to build.
