I have to replace a partial floor in an old victorian home built in early 1900's.The old floor is 7/8" thick and 2.25" wide maple. The room is about 11" long and the hardwood is full length pieces.I haven't checked yet, but if I remove a section of the floor starting at one end to the middle, and the remainder of the floor that is staying down, has the groove showing instead of the tongue, what would the proper nail down procedure be,not being able to nail the tongue. I will have to machine the maple flooring because it is 7/8" thick. I can machine up a starting piece with a tongue on both sides, so that I can slip it into the groove and have a starting tongue showing to lay the rest of the floor, but what is proper?
Thanks,
TWhit

It can work, splines are avaible for laminate
flooring to allow the planks to be reversed when needed. Just make up a double tongue
to get started. Glue it into the first groove
and your all set
