The wood is already the same thickness, though even slight differences would be enough to cause issues.

I’m not as worried about the amount of work and time it would take as I am getting in the middle of it and not being able to finish. I realize that an engineered product would not be too much more expensive, I could probably get okay flooring for $1 to $2 per foot. Though when comparing read hardwood to the cost of real hardwood, it’s a huge savings. So I guess it’s a matter of do I want to compare it to just getting new flooring or getting new real hardwood flooring.

Is real hardwood flooring glued together, nailed together, screwed together? Know of any articles/videos on the subject? I’ve done some youtube searching and found interesting things, but most seem to be commercials for whatever company put the video together. That’s not exactly what I’m looking for.
