Turned out great!

So how did you lay the floor?  That was one of your inquiries early on.


Looking at last picture I started in the right corner and came out. Worked well as I fit each board at the fire place and went away from it. I did get a slight bow and not sure how. If you put your head on the floor and look down the line one can see it. I used a band saw and chop saw in my shop (2nd floor) garage so it took many trips and time. Trimming today as the finish is now dry. Finished and installed in 3 sections, front room, dining room, hall.
It is fantastic!


Thanks.

Thanks guys.

 This is a $48500 floor, started out buying a mill. Then came a wheel loader and moulder and a kiln. Started this project 6 years ago when the wife wanted new carpet which was 28 years old. I am now on my 3 rd mill, upgraded twice. If I write off all my toys it is a pricey floor, not saying it is worth more than a Lowes bought floor but I did it myself. When I started sawing I was planning on a quarter sawn red oak floor. Will see how this holds up with changes in the seasons (humidity). Plan to order central air in the next 2 weeks to keep humidity under control. Glad to be done and outside again. Just hauled some spalted maple home to saw today.

This looks amazing and I am really happy that it does.  I am in very early phase of doing same thing.  So far, I am going to use walnut, white oak, maple, cherry, red oak and maybe some others.

I am also sawing for a hardwood floor. I havent gotten very far tho. But I was going to use ash, black that is but I need the wife to look at this floor first. I do like this. I have lots of red oak and black and white ash. Our maple isnt any good for sawing. It gets too cold around hear and busts them.
