The oval compass rose is similar to the round compass rose inlay. The oval compass rose is made up of 16 pieces with each piece alternating from sycamore to dyed black 0.5mm thick veneer. The vertical and horizontal pieces meet in the middle with the diagonal pieces stopping when they reach the centre. The vertical pieces are the longest length in the oval size with the horizontal pieces being the shortest length. These inlays can be mirror paired if required. Instead of the sycamore starting on the top left side, it would be the dyed black veneer on the next inlay.
