Since replacing our floor these things have been driving me mad looking at them seeings how they mate with the floor. I need honest opinions.... is it to much? Our floor is multi color but I think I went a bit further with the extremes Lol? I really like it but will restain at least the one long black section on the bottom... a bit to much Ebony. I repaired some cracks (sawed and glued them back together), plained them, routed grooves to make them appear to be separate boards then sanded and stained them. Plans are to build huge drawers into the faces.
