Milo Valley Farm - barn floor, part 2

by brae  

Continuing work on the barn floor.  As was completely expected, many of the boards warped during the drying process causing overlaps.

I cut slivers from the edges as well as a few interspersed holes.

Using the utility blade, I scored tiny lines at the edges of the boards.

I spread Weldbond glue to attach the flooring.

To keep the warping to a minimum (some is wanted for realism), I spread magazines and photo albums over some plywood planks.

The rest of the aging will be done later.

NICE! I is ready to see the messes. All the messes. :D More! More! MORE! We had an old dirty barn with old dirty things in it in Idaho...if only I'd gotten pictures. Shame on my 10 year old self! But I remember it looking a lot like this. You are getting it SO right!!
