I was really impressed with a video I saw ( http://wimp.com/parquetrywood/ ) on Japanese puzzle box marquetry and thought about how to adapt it as accent flooring boards. I made some demonstration boards but could generate no interest, so I recycled the materials to make a toy box for my grandkids. I did everything the wrong way, but I finally finished this for Christmas (a month late!). It’ll be a lot easier next time. I should have used red oak to trim the lid, but those ipe pieces were sitting in the trash, & I hated to waste them. Except for the American walnut, all wood used was scrap, including the plywood.
