I was very lucky to be able to purchase several bundles of stock material from a discontinued product at my work place a few years ago with the stipulation that I could never resale it as it was. The material is 2” x 6” x 8’ edge glued Honduran Mahogany. It sat in my barn for over a year before I was ready to put it to use. I cut material down into 4’ peices on the miter saw then split them in half on my table saw; took 2 passes each. I planed the material to .825 thick and routed tounge and groove profiles. Installed with flooring gun. I installed this flooring across my entire house, minus the laundry room and bathroom. 1100 sq ft total. Only attaced pictures of the living room since all projects are limited to 6 photos. I also attached a before shot of the living room with carpet. I used 3 coats of high gloss polyurethane as my finish, sanding between each coat. Then I buffed it to a high gloss.
I tried to get a close up picture but the mutt decided to photo bomb all of them. :)
Let me know what you all think. I have an idea of the value added to my home but not sure of exact amount.
