    Regular nail gun for hardwood flooring?

    Hi folks, I'm thinking of installing either bamboo or red oak planks in the room over the garage. If I am careful aiming the thing, can I get by with a regular nail gun? Ideally, it would be best to rent a proper flooring nail gun but the sheckles are low and I want to take my time doing...

    1/4" bundle packs at the Hardwood Store.....

    I think this is the right forum. I was over at the Hardwood Store today, with Mr. Ed Brant. In the offcut section, they have bundles of planed/joined 1/4 single species hardwood. Most 3" to 6" x 12" to 36" lenghts. Poplar, maple, oak and cedar. No clue what they are/were for. I...

    Any tips to match cherry plywood with Brazil. Cherry hardwood?

    I am currently building my own kitchen cabinets. For the doors, I am using Jatoba (Braz. Cherry) for rails and styles and the face frame using the "Shaker Style" look. For the panels I was hoping to use 1/4" cherry, MDF core G2S but I am worried that two will not match up very well and my...

    what to do now with hardwood floors

    I bought and installed unfinished hardwood floors (pic coming soon). I sanded stained and applied 4 coats of poly. Now what do I need to do? I'm thinking I may need to put down some type of wax but I have no idea what kind?

    Hardwood Store

    I need 50 bd ft 8/4 walnut - no luck on my WTB ad. The Hardwood Store seems to offer good value for the extra driving time for me compared with closer options. Wall is cheaper but adds significant additional time. I've been to Wall several times now but never the Hardwood Store. Can I get a...

    Hardwood flooring

    Has anyone attempted to make their own, or is it just as cheap to go the lowes and buy the engineered stuff? My main reason in doing it is to save 200-300 dollars by buying rough cut wood and doing everything from planing to finishing the boards myself. I'm trying to do Mahogany, and its just...

    Local mixed hardwood firewood sources?

    Can anyone offer me a referral for where I can find seasoned local mixed hardwood firewood at a reasonable price? We're looking for 1/2 - 1 cord delivered to Chapel Hill. I've always heard that the wood should be as local as possible to prevent importing out of town pests... Thanks!

    Unfinished hardwood flooring as lumber?

    Does anyone ever use 3/4" unfinished hardwood flooring for stock? You'd have to plane off the eased back and cut off the tongue and groove, but if you could get 5" or 6" boards cheap, would you? Thanks
