This is the show floor that we made for our flooring company for the local Home Builders show. The compass is made of Wenge and Birdseye Maple surrounded by Brazilian Cherry. the rings are made of Ipe and Maple with a 3/16 strip of Brass. Field is made of Red Oak and border is Lacewood. The floor dimensions are 8’x8’ and took around 45 hours to complete

Nice, if I had this and you walked on it waterboarding would seem like a walk in the park. (Laughing)

No this was all done with a router and plunging track saw, wish we could afford a laser CNC machine, so we can get into the complex stuff
