    How About This Natural Wood Floor?

    Saw this on Facebook and figured I'd share it here...

    I saw this too...I like it. Don't think I'd have the patience (or skill ) to do it though.

    Very interesting. I wonder about the long term effects. Certainly not something for our home, though.

    I dunno.

    Visually its cool as all get out. I could see doing a set of stairs like that.

    Practically there is some possibility of a fair bit of wood movement there so I'm hoping the house is really stable in that regard.

    I do wonder what they put between the boards, epoxy?

    Holy Toledo is what instantly came to my mind---and I don't even know what the term refers to or where it came from.

    That sure is not from the Home Depot or Lowe's flooring department.

    Enjoy,

    The visual effect makes me a bit dizzy but the floor is kind of appealing

    Screwed up my eyes for sure. Looks nice but not in my house.

    Not for me, but one good thing, I don't think it would show the dirt.

    I could see in a small room with a beautiful area rug to scale down the dramatic effect (but then again, why bother). I would love something in between the total "raw" and the typical manufactured stuff. But again it all depends on the house. A rustic cabin, perhaps, but not most modern cookie cutter houses.
