We started laying the floors!  No pics of the's basically just brush on a 1:1 water and vinegar mix and let it dry.  Then brush on a 1:1 linseed and turpentine mix, let dry for at least a day.  Then brush on a layer of polyurethane.  This is how far we got on one box of 100 cut nails.

A closeup of the floors:

These are the nails we are using:


  1. They are starting to look mighty fine.

  2. Thank you!! I need to post some updated photos, we've gotten to the other edge of the hearthpad now, about 2/3 of the way complete.
