Thanks Matt. I must admit, that my guys did all of the cutting on this one. I free handed the flames and the guys took it from there. I wasn't even on the job, which made me a bit nervous, but I think they did an awesome job.

Its good that you admit your guys did it. I am just wrapping up my irregular flag wetlayed patio. It is by far the nicest flat work my company has ever done. Last night i was talking to the customer and i told them it was the nicest patio i ever built. They look at me and said " Nice patio you ever built?? Give your guys some credit for what they did " My guys did the entire job like normal. I am just so used to taking all the credit!

I hate that "ME" and "I" sh!t. It's always.... ALWAYS "WE" and "US".

As the old saying goes, there is no "I" in team. As much as some of... well, almost all of my guys drive me crazy, I wouldn't be able to take on the projects, and make as much money as I.... oops, sorry, WE do.

dare i say with most humbling of voices i dont get it maybe if just the flames had a something on it to make it shiny while the rest stayed flat i saw the customers influence but maybe what the monster said all the patterns is my confusion

I think the craftsmanship is excellent.

That said, I don't like the tire strips, and or the shape of the flames.

But still, well done.

You have to be careful with getting too narrow with an inlay. Normally I like my flames to be longer and thinner, but w/ pavers you run a real risk of cracking them if they are too thin and at 1/2 hour per cut, I wasn't about to push it. The tire strips were the homeowners idea. He uses them to align his car in the garage.

and here i was going to joke that the HO could do just that with those

my favorite flame is the little one that got away.

have you thought about using the inlay kits you send in a design and they water cut it perfect and ship it back to you?
