Mitered corners are really a challenge. The inlays and veneer look pretty darn good. I remember watching Tommy McDonald doing a show on the topic and it was pretty interesting to see that the checkerboard inlay was laid down from the center of each side, to the ends. This allowed for making the ends join without disrupting the pattern. So there were two strips of checkerboard per side. But I sure like the look of this.
David it is about 6 1/2 by 6 1/2 inches. It is a slip fit on a red oak valet box. The center is burgled walnut, pressed in. The banding is Paduk Walnut and Maple I think. I have had for years so not positive about the banding. The outside frame is maple.
