The night before I had to repair a section of the flooring.
I then cut exact pieces from Tristans future room since the floor is generally already trashed there. We will need to replace the entire thing so it makes for good pillaging.
Tabitha asked, as I was cutting exact sized pieces, "if I shouldn't cut them larger and re-saw them to fit." No, because I don't have a more accurate saw than the one in my hand.
I watched plenty of you-tube videos of how to do this and felt confident that I completely understood the concept and nature of the task. My new belt sander was invaluable to making a very tight fit.
I cut the bottom tongue from the groved side so the last piece would go down.
Avery tight fit, I drilled and nailed them down.
Yes, I am getting old and need glasses for reading and exacting work of this nature,
Here is the floor after the sanding and staining.
After church today we will polyurethane the floor and protect it from the years of abuse ahead.
