I love puttering around with home projects. No formal training. I get ideas in my head and wish I had a handy hubby who could help out. He is great with plumbing, and electrical and automotive, but not carpentry.

I am wanting to do a unique floor. I want it to be cheap. I have envisioned having 2’x2’ wood squares. I would love a wood with some kind of grain, but it is not really necessary. It has been suggested that I use a sanded plywood. Or do I need it to be sanded if I am staining and varnishing mega times. Is it reliable to stain or do I need to condition it? My main goal is to keep it cheap, otherwise I may as well just get laminate or the vinyl planks!! Thanks for any help or suggestions

Hi there,
Welcome to LumberJocks… I joined the site myself a few months ago and will give you fair warning, this site is VERY ADDICTIVE, VERY EDUCATIONAL, and VERY FUN…. so sit back, enjoy the ride and learn from the other LJ’s as they are a group of extremely talented people that are also very friendly…

Enjoy your time here on LJ and pass the word to any of your woodworking buddies about us…

Welcome to Lumberjocks. The projects are an inspiration, the information is priceless and the people are supportive. The only problem is, the site can get addictive.

God Bless
