Seriously? Does it not exist any longer?
After a substantial "google" search, and exausting my phone book...I cannot find any product to match my 1.5 inch wide oak flooring. I'm quickly approaching the start date of an addition project and I want to match the existing oak flooring. It's a 1950's house, but I don't know when the existing floor was installed.

If any body has any idea where I could get my hands on a product like this, or have it made...I would greatly appreciate it!!

Thank You!!!

It's definitely out there but you may have to go directly to a mill to get it.

Thanks for the links!

I will definitely give them a try!

Contact millwork suppliers in your area. Many of them may have moulders that they use to produce trim. Although there are often some pretty steep prices associated with producing custom runs, it can be done.
If you'd fill out your profile information we might be able to suggest one in your location.

Yea, it may take a while, but mills will produce anything you want if:

You pay the premium rate
the amount is large enough (square footage)
