I know this isn’t a regular piece of furniture, but it is something I made out of wood. I get to enjoy it every time I walk into my dining room. The outer ring of wood is 5 rows of 2 1/4 by 3/4 T&G red oak laid in a log cabin pattern. Inside this are two rows of Brazilian cherry. Inside this is a two-foot wide rectangle of more red oak. The innermost five by seven foot rectangle is five rows of red oak in a herringbone pattern. When the light hits it right, every other row of the herringbone pattern reflects differently depending on the angle. Kind of like cats-eye.

A very good job on the floor. It is woodworking be in a toy, as furniture or as a floor.

Really nice looking floor. Hardwood floors are so warm and inviting. I have them in every room in my house, except the kitchen, bath, utility and sun room. Can’t imagine not having hardwood. Great design on yours.

The sign does say Lumberjocks not Furniturejocks so we’ll just have to say WOW!
