Update on the hall floor

It seems that life is still very busy, and I have not had time to write much, but I did want to take a minute to post a couple of pictures of our upstairs hall floor (still in progress). When we bought the wood flooring for the house, they had some abused boxes of thinner, lighter Brazilian cherry wood for really cheap; we thought we could use it for some decorative borders with our normal Brazilian cherry floors. Here is our first attempt, and probably the more complex attempt for this house.

As usual, I started by laying out a plan. It first started with some hand sketches:

Then I did a more detailed layout on AutoCAD (often this step is just a detailed hand drawing):

And finally, you get to do it all. You judge the results. BTW, the wider pieces will darken with time, increasing the contrast with the lighter border.

It looks good to me! Good job, as usual! (It also makes it look like there's actually a floor in "MY" room!!)
