No upload feature here SP. Or at least one that I have found yet. There are so many options this board has to offer but it takes a real rocket scientist to figure it out. I had to farm out getting the board set up. I haven't had the time to look into all the features nor how to do it. Instead of linking to FI just use the url image button..I know you can figure that one out.

Yeah Sean, you do some mighty fine work!

The bamboo manufactures name was DM Bamboo. They have since stopped making this engineered T&G float/glue nail long plank product from what I have heard. It either solid or float with a locking mechanism. Hmmmmm I wonder why? :roll:

And no thats not glue residue its saw dust. :wink:

Dang you got a good eye Sean! I could not undercut this tile around the fireplace. It was not high enough.

Now thats a nice lookin floor. Do you sand & finish?

Ken, I think it was just dust collected by be crawlin around on the floor. Heck I didnt even see it till I got home and loaded the pics.
