It's funny this lady had these under carpet for 20 years in her 100 year old house in Corvallis Oregon, she was comparing prices to patch and refinish or recarpet. She was blown away that the harringbone old growth fir could be so beautiful...I was like "DUUUUUHHHHHHHHHH" and then I took her money.
I love these jobs that these old guys around here won't touch for under 4 bucks a foot.
Hope you guys like..
3 coats of bona poly semi, it fills the grain better than synteco, and is more flexible for the ultra soft wood.
Minwax Golden oak stain.

Am I wrong by referring to the overlapping corners of the boarder as a herringbone boarder?

Please inform. :oops:

We call that type of joinery in border/apron work log cabin or stair step corners.

It was nice to find this log cabin joinery boardering the dining and living rooms beneath the carpet.

How bout that? :D

My two living rooms have the same design using heart pine. In the one room, I left the center natural and stained the border with a custom red mohagany/natural/cherry blend.

Great job! Hopefully mine come out good enough to post some pictures.

WOW!!!! Jabwoodworks! That looks absolutley beautiful!!!!
This is how my floor looks after pulling up all my carpet in this victorian house i bought a year ago. I am right now in the middle of deciding what to do. Repair them myself, replace all the hardwood, or lay new on top.
Really thinking that its not gonna be worth the time and effort but after seeing this you have given me hope! :D
