We milled, prefinished in shop, and installed this hickory floor. From there it turned into and office and a kitchen.

Really, like the looks of hickory floors. They seem to have a personality of their own.

Yes they do. They are just so hard to sand. But in the end they are worth it.

I’ve been thinking about doing my own floors. How may square feet did you do? Would you do it again?

Budgie- This job was only about 300 sg ft. We have done jobs as big as 1500 sqft out of hickory. There are a couple drawbacks to milling hoickory flooring. Because it is so stringy it tends to tear out instead of milling nice t&g joints. and the second is the hardness. Not only does it wear down tooling fast, it is extremely hard to sand. We have increased our prices considerably on hickory flooring, and cabinets, for that matter, just because of this. I am currently doing a new staircase in my own home and choose hickory. So yes, I would do it again.
