A few years ago (actually August 2004) I did an entire residential home using Armstrong laminate flooring. The gentleman I did the work for, his son in law had bought all the materials in Miami and exported to our country. Because of his rather large purchase he got some free installation tools and a VHS video from I believe it was Lowe’s. After completing the job he gave me all the tools and the VHS video. I took the video and converted it to a DVD and decided to upload it.

No music in this one… all work and no play. These planks are 17″ wide and almost 2″ thick… way too heavy for one person to lift. This wood is extremely old and hard to work, and reeks like horse sh*t when cut. I couldn’t believe it still smells fresh after all those years… Most of the nails could not be removed, as they were too corroded to pull out. This can be a big problem… since it can’t be planed on the machine, everything has to be done “as is”. One plank is fairly twisted up, so I employ the wood butcher method to flatten it out so it can function as a table top… and it works every time! I also pull out another trick to fix a rotten edge. I use matching grain from a cut-off to build it out to the thickness of the adjacent board. This is a serious wood shop video.
