This is the latest design from Lazy Larry Woodworks.
I was inspired by ‘Nahm’ on ‘This Old House’, when I saw the border of a parquetry floor in a 4 storey walkup Brownstone in Brooklyn. You can find inspiration everywhere.

Timber used are New Guinea Rosewood, and European Wild Cherry for the weave and Silver Ash for the background.
It is 22 ” by 5 ” and about 3/4 ” thick.
The last pic is a glue up.

Nice work on this Larry…I really like how the grain of the silver ash is at an angle and not straight down the length of the board. Beautiful!
