Adjusting hardwood across a floor
I have a room with two openings on one wall that is conspicuously in line-of-sight. So I want to start there, with flooring aligned with the openings. Opposite wall is fifteen feet away and is obscured by furniture and curtains. But it's an outside wall.
Thing is, across the room there is a three-inch difference between the distances of those two walls.
If I, instead, start at the outside wall the wood won't align with the room openings. If I start at the openings, it won't align with the outside wall.
What I thought I might do is start at the openings, but after a couple feet start skewing the boards slightly by placing a dime between them at the long end, concealing the gap under the baseboard as best as I can.
Would this work?
Is there, perhaps, a better way to adjust floor board alignment as you march across a room?
Am I causing a problem that is worse than what I'm trying to solve?
One saving grace is that this is character hickory, so the board lines are obscured a bit by the strong variation in color within boards.
