custom floor using 5/8 plywood. I have been salvaging and saving veneer or veneered plywoods from Walter P Sauer’s scrap bins and other local manufacturer’s in Brooklyn for a while. Recently got a chance to put them to use. Got a client to go for it, and luckily everything has been working out so far. Am on to a finish currently, gonna tie, or attempt to tie all the different pieces/tiles together, as well as for protection and preservation-by using polyurethane (high-build). this is my first floor, among several “firsts” with this project. am concerned with my approach to the finish. (having different finishes on the unique woods/pieces used.) Underneath was an original wood floor, looked maybe 1960’s or 50’s, and that was revealed after pulling up some old nasty linoleum or laminate squares. Used wood glue, and square-bit/head wood screws. made a 5/8”x 1” custom trim around edges out of solid walnut from an old dinner table’s legs. This project is on the second floor of a brownstone in the Gawanis/Caroll Gardens area of Brooklyn. Will upload the pics of finished product.
