Desktop from Hardwood Flooring???
We want to build a desktop for our office. This small room is octagonal and the desktop will span 3 of the 8 sides. Our first choice is wood and topping the list of ideas is IKEA butcher block. However, I would prefer black walnut. What do you think of building counters out of solid wood flooring? Basically making our own butcher blocks? I would use unfinished solid wood flooring so the tops could be sanded smooth after gluing and finish it with Waterlox.
What do you think?
