this job was in New hampshire about 3 hours from home. Luckily it was at a hotel and we stayed there free. A nice place,the 4 seasons, in manchester,NH. This is in the main lobby. Actually one of my coworkers did this scribe. Took him about 4 hours but it looked great. Much harder than it looks. I just wanted to share what us woodworkers deal with when were not there to see what we have to do first.

Wow. Seriously, how did he do that? The finished result looks like the block was laid after the unit was put in!

we wish it was that way. You basically start from the high points. Scribe those, set back 1/4” and do it againuntil theres no gaps. The fillers were literally 10” wide when we started. I got more pics of that job comming later today.

The base was actuall hard becaus it was solid. the filler was mdf so it made it a little easier on us. Luckily for me I got to install the reception desk that day. We get this kind of work all the time, maybe not this extreme but pretty hairy.
IMO the bricks should have been laid after. That would have been cheaper all around. But we know how those architectual folks are. Hey, pay us we’ll do it.

I wonder if you could have used some clay on a backer with a protective sheet or something, then transfer that pattern a little at a time….

Either way, that’s a crazy cut…..

Tough job. It might have been easier to grind a 3/4” wide groove in the protruding masonry and slide the spacer board into it. (-;

Really nice work on a tough job. 4 hours? I could do that for 4 days and not have it look that good.
