    David, will these have the look of the floors we often marveled at in Lamu?

    Yes. And also some of the ones in Tuscany, too. The color will fade after curing and days of polishing.

    Beautiful. Japolo could get himself some work in Tuscany, too.

    Why the elliptical strokes, like planetary spheres? I know there’s some good functional reason. They’re also beautiful in their own right.

    Who’s Bon Iver? I’m showing my ignorance here.

    Hi Chris,

    The elliptical strokes, when done right, leave no “last mark,” so to speak. A continuous erasing of the slightly raised line left by the spreader. Also, when all is said and done, there are several loose rows of these ellipses that are quite attractive and subtle and feminine in their curvature.

    Bon Iver (good winter), terrific band. Justin Vernon and a few friends. YouTube them. Stacks, for Emma, the acapella version, Flume, etc. Lovely.

    This floor transformation reflects skill and artistry.
    Simply ” floored’ by the talent! . :-))
    Blessings to all of you. Thurs is Thanksgiving.
    I bookmarked your site, as it is exciting to view the evolution.
    The beautiful pictures are vivid shots of what a day is like there.
    Such brilliant and loving work.. keep at it!

    Now I want to give Bon Iver a listen for the first time and enjoy the moment.
    Smiles across the miles.
