Not My Floor

Joey showed me some pictures of a floor his company recently did.  Not my floor.  Heck, no. I want to make that clear, right from the start, that this is not my floor.  This is a Very Expensive Floor.  Also, a Very Beautiful Floor.  When I saw it, I just had to share it with you.

It started out like this:

The floor is red oak, Brazilian tiger wood, and—get this—brass inlays.  Joe said those brass inlays were a real pain in the hiney to cut. 

Here's the floor after they finished laying it all out:

See the brass strips over on the right side of the photo? 
Here's a closer (if a bit blurry) photo of the brass inlays.
Yowza.  These people have skills.

And just feast your eyes on the finished floor:
Wow.  Just WOW.  That's a seriously beautiful floor.

  2. WOW! Now tell me- does the brass age? or does it have a finish on it? What a fabulous idea!

  3. I would trip over those brass inlays and perhaps do serious damage to myself, but that's just me :-)
