A new floor where carpet once was with reclaimed. 1X4 redwood. The stuff is gorgeous. If you like this kind of look, I'm a herringbone, patterning herringbone pattern, the corners. You can see this. I've got some 45 minors more 45. Now your degree now, if you're doing this reclaimed, wood flooring give yourself about double the amount of time to install it, because the stuff this particular wood was milled 1848. The equipment they had at the time was not the best in the world plus the time you tear it out. You have a lot of missed milled edges. This stuff's happened to be tongue and groove anyway, a lot of extra work.
If you're going to buy this stuff pre-made or in other words pre-milled, somebody pulls it apart, rebuild if you're going to spend, spend probably between ten and fifteen dollars a board foot. I do this myself. This house came this: wood came out of a house built in 1848 and Santa Cruz California area piece of history. California is not that old back east you folks have stuff was you know done three-four hundred years ago out here in California. This is an ancient piece of history anyway, so I run a border around here them and I fill it with stuff with just a straight run. Your equipment, so specialized equipment you're going to need is a chalk box.
Here I have a sliding compound miter box 18 gauge, pin nailed I nail through the tongue of this and occasionally the face nailing with a face nail. It's so small, there's a little close-up that it takes an easier team unity, amount of putty or nobody at all. This fluoride, because there are so many voids - and you know blemishes if you want to call that like I personally like this kind of stuff, I don't want to fill that I'm just going to knock down the edges. Any of the high edges I know and just put a coat of clear finish on it. You'll notice. I've got some liquid nails here, construction, adhesive and I use that stuff under every course. Just because again, the milling on this stuff is suspect.
This would particularly is very soft and I'm not counting on the nails to hold it down in place. What is moving around as you walk on it, so it's not squeaking and cracking anyway, we'll catch me later here and see where we're going bodies are shovel down. It's one of the many tools I have to wrap it a bit on a router to clean up any misalignment of the TNG on the sole to reuse. Flooring. A couple of fat beads of construction adhesive under it helps keep that floor from squeaking. Nobody likes a squeaking floor because of the nature of this wood.
