I was watching the show this weekend and I saw a kitchen floor being made out of wood blocks that when finished looks like cobblestones. I think its called cobblewood floors. Can you give me information on this I would love this in my kitchen.
Thanks!

That was the Cobblewood flooring installation from the Chicago
Greystone. It is show #136. To order, please visit http://store.yahoo.com/bobvilashopping/index.html
Delivery usually takes about three weeks.

Use 3/8 or 1/2 inch thickness of wood. Any size or shape onto a
sub-floor. Not too large or warping will occur.First glue floor down,
You use the regular tile mastic as an adhesive.

Let set for two days... Then grout, let set for one day. Also add any
stain to grout, then do final coat of varnish, stain etc. Then
maintain like any wood floor. Oil it every 2 years using a wood floor
oil. Varnish once a year. Buff once a month.

The grout for the cobblewood flooring is composed of sawdust from the
wood mixed with a fast-drying oil-based sealer in a ratio of 2 parts
sawdust to 1 part sealer. Pour the grout on the floor push it into
the cracks using a rubber trowel or your hands. Trowel in the grout.
Squeegee off the excess. Steel wool the face to remove any remaining
excess grout that could dry to the top of the bricks. Let it sit over
night and then apply another coat of oil-based sealer the next day.
Hope this helps.
