Vila mentioned on a previous show how to lay a woodblock floor. (using the ends of the boards lying flat on the surface). He said to lay the blocks then pour/press a paste of 2 parts sawdust and 1 part something else in the crevaces. I just cant remember what the other part was. If you saw the show please let me know as my wife would love a woodblock floor.

Much Appreciated,
Woodworker

I have not seen the show, but a rather common mixture for filling creavices between wood is sawdust and wood glue.
