Interesting Flooring idea

During the building of my house, I have been doing the best I can to utilize every piece of wood, even with my best effort there will be quite a few scraps left over and it got me thinking about how I could use those pieces of wood.  Today I stumbled upon an interesting idea that one could use those scraps for.  It’s a floor made of left overs of 2×4 and other random lumber.   I think the concept show here can be improved upon by adding some sort of resin or filler for the cracks and then sand the bejesus out of it all.







Wine Barrel Floors

So I saw this today and it had such character and the reuse and re purposing of these materials is so neat I had to share.   As most of us know, wine is often fermented in wooden barrels.  Typically these barrels are oak, often from french oak trees, but what I didn’t realize is that they only last about 10 years and cost around $1000 a barrel!  So this company takes the barrels which are often sold for rather cheap, straightens them out, mills then and the installs as wood flooring.
