Thought I'd share my first hardwood floor project. It took me a long time to complete but I'm pleased with the way it turned out. I learned a lot just by reading material on this forum and by asking specific questions that were answered by several of you.
I'd like to thank Jay (Exquisite Flooring), Gary (Most Valuable Contributor), and my son Nick. Credit for the design goes to Jay, as he originally posted it on this forum, and was willing to answer detailed questions on how he completed his project. My wife fell in love with it as soon as she saw Jay's pictures and I only changed it slightly. Thanks to Gary for his continued high value advice, and to my son who turned me on to this forum and helped me along the way.
If you're interested in seeing how I tackled the job, I decided to take pictures as it progressed and document the project on my Picasa page. Click on the website below, then click on the picture of the floor. Click on the first picture on the upper left corner, then you can navigate with the arrows at the top. I wrote captions at the bottom describing each photo.
I hope you find it interesting. Here’s the website:
