How I make the wood floor
Cut a tree down, preferably a sustainable harvest.
I had some grevilia robusta trees, a semi hardwood about 40 years old. I took a few out.
Hire someone to cut the logs into lumber. Next time I will use the guys who do it by manual 2 meter saw. This time it was chain saw. too much loss, too uneven
Movie cutting logs by pit method. Very cool
run the boards throw a shaper to plane to uniform thickness
then they look something like this
Then rip with this table saw
Then I cut the strips into 50cm lengths
