Hardwood Floor using 2×4 slivers

Now here’s an interesting idea. More durable than traditional wood floor. We spotted this lovely floor at Cartolina, a Candian design house that creates and sells paper products and other sundries, featuring quirky vintage designs that are easy to love. When the folks at Cartolina decided to make an expansion to the studio, they chose to use end grain block flooring, a style commonly used on factory floors in the 19th century.

 

 

Use a heavy bed of Bostic Best adhesive, 25 feet per gallon to act as moisture barrier and glue.

    I really like the look of this floor. I am chemically sensitive, so looking for safe answers. Do you know if there are low/no VOC glues & finishes that will work well with this? Thanks much.
