    I have a client I was talking to on the phone this past week about his concerns about his company’s difficulties they may face with this trade war with the US as he works in the automotive parts supply side of things.

    He was telling me about this new type of hybrid metal sandwhiched wood flooring his company has been tinkering with as a sideline opportunity for them they may get into that he says they have had a lot of interest in from their customers and others.

    So when his wife came over to pick up their tax stuff and pay me my money, she brought over a small sample of it and a piece of the metal bare that gets sandwhiched between the two pieces of wood. Looks intriguing, although if the metal is not stainless steel, which I don’t know if it is, but I could ask him. It would be prone to rust as the sharp little metal prongs of the metal medium that holds it altogether show on the surface.

    Just thought it was an interssting new thing that may have some potential. I asked if I could keep the samples, unfortunately I couldn’t but I was allowed to take some pics.

    I don’t know why they would put metal there?

    I imagine simply for strength. The whole flooring is made with solid sheets of it sandwhiched in between.

    I don’t know if any of you will find this interesting, but I felt pretty proud of myself just for using what I had on hand today – I needed to cut the hole for a toilet flange in this replacement subfloor patch, and I didn’t have my compass with me, so I just used a strip of linoleum, put two marks for the radius I needed, a screw through one into the wood and a pen through the other. Worked great!

    Looks like it worked. I often use a scrap of wood as a compass in the same manner.

    Good idea Charlie, I’ve used plenty of different materials, good job.

    I have seen 4 x 8,9,10,12,16 and 24 and 8 x 24 used in various applications, especially SIP panels. They use the longer ones listed.

    Tomorrow’s window job is going to be interesting.

    Corvette was the first car I know of with the sandwiched wood floor. They sed balsa wood to stiffen the floor and keep weight and noise down. It was at least 8-10 years ago they first did it.

    Never seen that size before,
    Would be interesting to see if they are custom made, or easily available.

    That is an odd window – good luck today.

    I wonder when laminate wood flooring became not strong enough??

    Definitely an interesting window job, almost looks like they replaced the window and added the glass blocking to fit the original opening
    Waiting to hear how this one goes.

    I was just wondering. I guess it is a good question. Still makes me wonder.
