Made this from some scraps I had laying around from other finished projects. The squares are made from maple, and mahogany, the border is trimmed with oak and a thin walnut inlay. The squares are 2” x 2” and the overall dimension is 18 1/2” x 18 1/2” x 3/4”.

The inlay is a nice accent to the piece.
