Some may wonder why I said ash or cherry.

We picked out a beautiful rustic cherry from Olde Wood Limited in Ohio. We like the character of the wood and the method they use to mill it. It looks like a reclaimed plank with saw marks. Comes in varied length planks, 3-6” wide and is finished with Rubio Monocoat. 3/4” solid wood flooring.

A local mill Tuscarora Midwest has some very nice new growth Ash that has been harvested due to the emerald ash borer decimating the ash trees in our area. The wood is also very beautiful and much different than the aforementioned Cherry. The ash would be unfinished and I would apply the oil on site. The mill can pre sand the planks and slightly bevel the edges so I don’t have to do a full drum sand job. I will use a buffer with 120 grit screen to get everything in shape foe the oil. Varied length and 3-5” wide. Solid 3/4” wood.

So now I’m wondering which route I should go? Opinions or advice welcome. I would be using the strip glue assist method with 2” cleats on my subfloor.
