I recently had a nice contract to do some parquetry work that was installed in 8 thresholds. There were some tricks involved in doing this kind of work. I wrote about the project on my Furniture Blog if you’re interested in learning about it.

Very cool & nice write up in your blog!

I have been playing with a detailed border for a future hardwood floor. I have been planning on using full thickness blocks to avoid any issues with the big floor sanders. I’d be interested in any thoughts you might have on that vs a thinner layer on a substrate.

“I have been playing with a detailed border for a future hardwood floor. I have been planning on using full thickness blocks to avoid any issues with the big floor sanders. I’d be interested in any thoughts you might have on that vs a thinner layer on a substrate.”

I wouldn’t want to be sanding 1/16” veneer with a floor sander. If your pattern is built around straight lines I don’t see any reason not to use full thickness blocks. It would save the whole routing business. If it’s curved or complicated for some other reason it might be worth sanding the floor and then inlaying into the finished floor.
