Well Jocks,
Took a lot of your ideas and mingled them with my own, and here are a few pics of my start.

I began with 10 sheets, cut them into eighths, table sawed each side on each eighth for squareness and size; the set up a production jig to biscuit each side with 3 biscuits…anybody doing the math??? LOL

I then arranged them in a checkerboard fashion, again, 3 biscuits per side and gorilla glued the only the corners.
Anyway, this yielded 80 23-3/4” sheets which covered 27’x12’—-or 1/3 of my total 1,200 sq. ft shop.


Now I got to apply a finish to this section of floor so I can move things back into place to begin the next 1/3rd section.
The moving of all the shop stuff is killer too btw! Got any ideas on the finish? I’m leaning towards either satin polyurethane, or linseed oil- any thing else worth considerin’ you ‘spose?
Hope you’all are building some cool stuff out there!
