wood floor is wood floor, faux wood laminate floor looks like laminate floor
prefinished solid wood floor is easy to install and looks a lot better than 30 yrs ago

the wife and i are looking to move out of snow country (9" snow last night)
looking at homes for sale, one look at a picture with laminate floors is enough to turn me off the perfect home

NoThankyou's comment on stain... also my thoughts exactly
haven't stained any wood since i was 20 yrs old, unless it was to match existing
you want walnut stain? buy walnut wood

Ok. which one of these is the real wood flooring and why?
@NoThankyou you too...

I use the left over boards for straight edges.

I have done woodworking with machinists and machining with woodworkers so I have a pretty good idea where both are coming from, and I can go into a store and buy a normal size hat.
