Thanks Lee,

Good idea on the staples. That’s all it would take….if anything at all is used.

I think you are right about a couple things:

I’d prefer to use full sheets for fewer seems, with 2×8 sheets around the perimeter against the walls. By not gluing anything, I could still pull up indivdual panels in the event of damage, wear or need for access.

The idea of using smaller panels alternating direction , i.e. 2×2 pieces, is saavy and would be just as you said: cool:) I calculated that I need 20 sheets of plywood…and that translates into many fewer cuts…and that in turn would translate into 80 cuts if I used 2×2…and only 40 if I use 4×4 panels. Either size would be great, no?

So OK: you talked me into smaller squares with alternating grains Lee!

Cool indeed- thanks! I’ll be posting pics of the project pretty soon, as I find it interesting how little info is actually posted out there.

taker’ easy- more soon!
