I am coming down the home stretch.

I put three coats of oil based poly on top of one coat of stain.

I trim tonight and then start moving the furniture back in the rooms.

This has been a lot of work to lay and finish 700sq ft. of wide plank pine.

This has even cut down on my commuting by bike time.

OMG, that's gorgeous! I laid some beautiful honey (should I stop here?) colored beech in my old house. We moved out of that into a bigger, fancier house, with a whole bunch of Bruce oak. I HATE oak, and I HATE Bruce (all those damn grooves to hold dirt that will never come out, and it just looks cheezy).

How old are those boards? Are they new to your house or original?

The boards are brand new white pine. It is 3/4 tongue and groove 11" wide.

I could sit and stare at some of the really cool gained boards for quite a while. I never needed reading material in the bathgroom. I'd just gaze at the floor. What can I say???? I'm a simple man.

Big - Were you able to buy 11" white pine, or did yu mill them yourself, or did you have reclaimed wood milled?? Wood loving minds want to know.

I actually do "love the smell of sawdust in the morning".

To answer a few questions.

The wood is new 11 inch tongue and groove that my brother bought and gave to me. We renovated his farmhouse on the farm he recently purchased and it was a gift for helping out. He put the same stuff in his kitchen. He bought it in Connecticut. Hauled it back to Md. on a trailer. It was priced right, I think it was $4 sq. ft. I stained it with minwax golden oak, and then used oil poly.


For you woodaholics. My brother just had a slew of white pine milled on his property and is stickered in his garage. We are building a manfort cabin out of pine in the woods looking over a nice deep water creek.
