  • Has anyone ever made hardwood flooring?

    Hi Everyone, I am wondering if anyone has ever made their own hardwood flooring. I have oak, hickory, and maple wood 5/8 thick. I am looking for some information on milling it to lay a new floor in my dining room. I was thinking instead of tongue and groove that I could groove and spline it all. I am also thinking of an antique look of counter sinking screws and filling the holes. Any thoughts or information about milling this and installing would be of great help to me. Thanks in advance, Steve

    Hi Steviegwood, I haven't made it personally but I have a good friend who has.
    He kiln dries all his own lumber. Here is a link to his site http://www.tree2table.ca/ you can drop him an email and I am sure he can answer some of your questions.

      Hardwood Floors

      Hi Carl, thanks for the link. I dropped him an email and am waiting a reply. I will take any advice that I can get. I priced some flooring and I believe I can do my own a lot less expensive. By the way your friend does have a way with tables and benches doesn't he. Everyone should check that out. Thanks Again, Steve

        I clean it up and stuff regularly. If I do a lot of typing, spreadsheets, etc., I use the computer as it’s faster for me but take the tablet to shows and markets to post from there. I also use my rapid resizer program on the tablet when I want to change a pattern and am downstairs. I really need a...

        Rolf, if your Picassa file works I want it!!! They cram so much into newer programs that it just complicates things and takes away intuitive stuff. Thank you for checking!

        Linda,
        Quote, I kept my old computer even though it was barely alive simply due to one particular program...Picassa by Google...which they removed from the market years ago. It worked like a combo photo and editing program but easier. It could take a photo and change it to a line drawing beautifully...
