New cork floors for the office. Now to wait. And clean.

  1. I put cork floors in my workshop. It’s like standing on fluffy marshmallows, compared to concrete.

    Only, I wouldn’t recommend dropping a heart pine beam onto it, sliding through the basement window. It does tear it up a little.

    At some point in the near future, I need to take one of my leftover cork tiles and make a few patches.

    Other than that, I couldn’t be happier with the results! Now I just need to figure out what kind of baseboard to use with it…


    • I got the floors installed a couple weeks ago and couldn’t be happier. The plan is to have a small Roubo-style bench in there too at some point… I’ll have to be a bit careful getting it into the room. 🙂


    • I always say, “If you can learn from someone else’s mistake, then that’s one less for you to make!”

      Are you going to bother with baseboard? I wasn’t, initially, but I keep thinking about making the workshop look more finished and inviting and every time I go to one of the big stores, I find myself eyeing the baseboard…


    • Yup, I’m going to paint the existing baseboard, which I carefully removed before installing the floor, and reinstall it. It’s pretty basic pine trim with a small ogee on the top. Nothing fancy. The hard part is going to be getting out all the scratches the morons who installed the carpet put into the trim when they installed the carpet.
