Had the wonderful looking piece of black walnut that was 14” wide x 8’ Only problem was it was so warped and twisted I couldn’t really make anything out of it, other than 3.5” blocks. Landing is 4×4’ feet, single piece of walnut.

Did you treat this like a glue down floor or do a single glue up an then install in single piece? Never done any flooring

it is maple strips between blocks.

Nope basically just glued all the blocks into place piece by piece. Just need a clean and flat subfloor to work off of. Went down fairly quick

We like it. Looks great! Terrific use of an otherwise unusable piece. Thanks for sharing.

Very elegant. I nearly made a box like this once. Simple yet very effective pattern.

You didn’t mention finish; epoxy would last a LONG time and protect from everything.
