Okay, not much of a picture, but it has made an adequate floor.

It looks good. I don't see much wear and tear

Thanks Stump!

Another reason for using edge grain for flooring is that it's more stable with changes in humidity. Flat sawn Western and Eastern Larch both expand twice as much across the width as the humidity increases.

Here's a fellow in NS.

Have a look at his cutting boards.

I recognize those! A couple of years ago the owner of the local kitchen shop called me up and said I'd be interested in the cutting boards she just got in. I went and had a look, and that's exactly what they had. They look even nicer "in person". I figured out how to manufacture them, and worked out how much I could earn if I charged the same prices. Not bad at all -- except for one little old thing. I figured I'd saturate the market pretty quick in this region and the volume wouldn't be there to make it pay.

I must have been right. Dawn sold most of her supply pretty quickly but sales started to drop off toward the end.
