    He's been spending trim money on quarter sawn oak just so he can see the grain pop. White ain't gonna happen.

    Hey, that is fine !! Finished wood is nice too. Especially when you spend time to get clear pieces (without joints). Oak stains really nice.
     
  5. Yes they are nice but the photo is not my house. Mine is more of a Mediterranean Villa style.

    Those floors are really going to look great. Time for a new bass in matching wood for the living room. ;-)

    I like that idea. A hickory bass would be virtually indestructible.

    So the install is done. But crap! Cat already puked on it. Looks terrible. They should be able to sand that out, right?

    Day 7. More sanding, staining to be started. All knot holes, imperfections filled and smoothed. Floor feels smooth as a baby.
