    Very nicely done - I really like the pattern. Yet another thing to try - (so many capabilities, so little time.)

    Looks like you prepped the panel in the shop then installed into a floor, correct?
    Also, do the light (maple) pieces stand a bit proud, requiring a boatload of sanding?

    Thanks for sharing - great job!

    That is very nice. Its interesting that you went perpendicular with the grain of the medallion to the main floor. Was that a design preference or a customer request?

    Correct. It was installed after completion in our shop.
    Everything was surfaced flush on the bot.

    It was just a customer preference. Figured it was easier than trying to line it up perfectly to the floor lines.
