Crazy?....but how do I install hardwood flooring on wall


Thanks moomdawg.

That is a good idea, but I don't have a circular saw for that. I guess I would have to use my handsaw.

I saw wood veneer that looked interesting the other day. I guess I would put that on with glue?

Then I would have to stain it.

Most big-box stores will cut the plywood for you on a panel saw if you give them the dimensions. You could also look on craigslist for a used circular saw. there's cheap tools aplenty over there.

Ok, here goes the dumb question.......

What is tongue and groove pine and cedar siding? Where can I go and take a look? Home Depot?

Also, I don't want the bevelled edge showing. What I would like to get is no groove inbetween, like a whole sheet what there, if possible.

Thanks

Uh, not to open a can of worms here but I just stripped oak flooring off my neighbours wall. Have you considerred all the perforations you might be making in your vapor barrier if this is an insulated wall and will that be an issue in your location?

Sorry I didn't read way back 3 pages but has anyone suggested premium 1/4" plywood with the surface wood of your choice. I had an oak feature wall done this way 20 years ago. It was stunning and applied mainly with adhesive panel caulking. You could cut it to your preferred height and cap it with chair rail or similar. In fact a specialty plywood store would likely cut it for you, first cut free.

One of the walls has insulation and vapour barrier, but I will only be nailing into the studs.

Sorry I thought you were considering laying the flooring vertically up your walls.
