This is a 170mm width selected first quality 10mm thick Jatoba board
floor with chamfered arrises (edges). It is inlaid with 6mm wide
brass strips set 4mm below the face of the board.
We are very proud of this floor. It combines several new ideas and
properties. Firstly we treated the timber to a process which enriched
the colour of the timber without the use of stain. Secondly, though
someone is bound to tell us that this is not a first, we have never
before seen, or heard rumours of, a decorative wooden floor inlaid
with metal. Thirdly, almost by accident we developed a very successful
method of fitting the floor so that it was firmly fixed but it could
be easily taken up without damaging it. This last could prove very
useful if access is required beneath the floor. This lovely floor,
conceived, designed and made by David Gunton, was created especially
for Sorgo Design.
