Question

I have access to 2-3' first grade Cdn cedar tongue and grove strips (varying widths).

I live in a high rise condo with concrete subfloors.

Three questions:
1) Since cedar is not hardwood, will it be durable enough for flooring (more durable with proper urathane)?

2) Can I simply use an adhesive to the concrete for the strips?

3) Any special tips to join the ends of the strips (is wood glue sufficient)?

Thumbs down

I don't believe that I would use cedar as a flooring. It wears very easily. The urethane would only help seal it, not make it wear longer.

It's just too soft.
