Using damaged baltic pine floorboards
I have a modern laminate floor on chipboard. I'd like to replace with solid wooden floorboards. I've just sourced 40m2 of Baltic Pine from an Edinburgh New Town house. They're all tongue and groove but badly damaged from the lifting. What's my best options? All ~6" : should I cut down straight to ~4.5" and then cut again new tongue & groove, or stick with straight edges?
What's the best cutting method for the tidy up? Many thanks
This is something that you will find hard to get a workshop or machinist to undertake.
This is because of possible damage to cutters.
If you choose to do this yourself buy a table saw (second hand) then resell when done!
Unless you have time and money to throw at this, I would not bother with tongue and groove.
