I love the look of walnut... wood of the kings! Really nice pieces, del. Inspiring.

I just bought some walnut this weekend... in a different kind of way. It's actually hardwood flooring. I haven't looked it over really well yet, but the pieces are about 4 inches wide, and many are three feet long or even better. The top face is beautifully finished (natural color), and the underside has very shallow beading in it. The edges are tongue and groove. I'm not exactly sure what I plan on doing with it yet, but it will become furniture of some sort. It's 3/4 inch, and I got about 37 square feet (two boxes). I bought it at an auction for $175 (cdn). I originally thought it was going to be cheaper:( Does this sound like a decent price?

i have had no bad experence with it here is the link where you can get all you need i got the spray gun instead of the cardboard tube with the hole in it i done lots of box's so i wanted to get it done faster and i thank better just get a pint of paint with the glue mixed in it comes in the same color as the sweade all you do is just paint where you want the flock than spray on the flock heavy let it set over nite than use a air hose with low air flow and spray over the place with the flocking and remove the loose stuff do that out side or next to a exaust fan all so when you spray it on do the same or you will look like you have been flocked click on the color chart they have lots of colors del schisler
