Real Hardwood Floors

We got the news today. Our giant tree is cut and ready for pickup!  Here it is on the saw…. BEFORE

Here are some of the pieces…. AFTER


We have enough wood from that one tree to do the floors in our open living room/dining room/kitchen area! That is $0.66/sq ft! That is a heck of a deal on hardwood flooring. We will have to tongue & groove it ourselves.

Now to decide if we sand, stain and seal, or just sand and seal. I’m thinking maybe a thin layer of driftwood gray stain to still see the beautiful grain from this water oak. Any comments or suggestions?
