Hardwood Floor on walls


I saw this while staying overnight at a hotel. Anyone have any tips to give me as i would like to do this in my condo. I think it would look great in between my patio door and window. The opening is approx 2 ft x 9 feet high. I have left over bamboo from my floor. How do i achieve this look. The dept and size of the strips are all different.

Any ideas on how i do this.
Thanks

Cover wall with at least 1/2 plywood and I'd use my narrow crown staple gun to attach the flooring to the wall.

Thanks for the reply.
How do I achieve the difference in thickness and depth in the wood. Would I just rip the hardwood in different thickness. From the picture, the boards are approx 1 inch in thickness.

I've seen this before where each of the slats are stained/painted in slightly different colors too. Really makes for an intricate looking piece. Do you know that the thicknesses are actually different? You could achieve the same look by just offsetting the front faces and gluing them together. Of course, the back wouldn't be flush, but if you put it in a thick frame, nobody would ever know.

The other easy option would be to get a board, say 3/4" thick, and start ripping different thicknesses out of it. Turn cut each board on its side, and you would have a uniform set of 3/4" slats, with varying thickness.

It looks like they did a base layer all the same height and then came in after and doubled up the slats randomly.

I like the look of that, now that it is turned the right way. My wife would lament on the dust collection issues.

If you installed them horizontal then they could just be attached to the studs.

I might suggest using an unfinished wood and then planing the boards to different thicknesses to help get the textured look. Or BR-111 I believe makes flooring for walls, so maybe check out their site. The area you need is so small that you could probably find someone on craigslist or something that has a leftover bundle of a cool exotic wood or something. Hope this helps.

yes looks very nice, here we do this too, actually it is just waste, small pieces of wood that are considered as waste in our production and with a process called fingerjoint, you glue all the small pieces together to a bigger piece. Good for recovery results.
