Installed my new Ash flooring. Milled all the lumber using my homemade sawmill.
and dried it in my dads shed.

Flattened it all using my homemade jointer.

Made a heater vent insert also.

Here is a short and crappy video of it.

You brought the diy meaning to a whole different level! It looks amazing Sean! i like that its not just the light coloured wood. You got a mix of the earth wood that adds a lot to the look of the floor.
