Once someone sees what is under their carpet they never want to have carpet again.
Especially if you don't vacuum it and deep clean it every once in a while  :)

Taking a risk here, but this is Brazilian Cherry Hardwood left over scraps from a job I did a few years ago. Customer wanted to throw the excess product (ignoring my advice) out so I brought it home and covered my home bar with it. 

Point is; always keep some of your left over flooring. They didn't and now they are desperately searching for a matching product to replace about 6 planks due to dragging a dishwasher across their kitchen. I can offer them my bar, but that won't help and this particular line has been since discontinued. So they're screwed.

Just like food, you can always utilize leftovers.
What type of finish did you put on top of the hardwood on top of the bar?

@MaxPower That's the product as it is sold. Almost all hardwoods all ready to install out of the box.

Years ago when we ripped the carpet out of the living room we were shocked at the amount of dust, dirt and sand. 7LBs worth. The only place with carpet in the house is on the stairs for Vera's sake. Giant breed dogs don't do well with wood, tile, or laminate stairs unless they learn from a very early age.

Looks good. I was just wondering if you put an additional finish on it since it was being used as a bar top.

Been installing all the floors in a large two level Irish pub that is still under construction. These stairs lead down to the lower level where the Irish game room will be. What Irish games are there other than drinking and fighting? Anyways, I love the look of wood stairs.  Just don't fall down them.. ;) They're very unforgiving.

If you ever have the pleasure of wood stairs in your home you'll never go back to carpet.

@Sofia pm’d me and said she sees a gap on the right of the top stair.

LOl ya big goof, all the trim has yet to be installed. These flooring products require a little breathing room at the end of each row... I know that you know that! Or at least you should. Once baseboards are on and all is finished, things will be perfect. But you know that.

IF NOT THEN QUARTER ROUND ON THE BASEBOARDS WILL FIX IT RIGHT UP!

First of all you don't have to YELL at me, I'm standing right here.  And yes,,, I will be installing the quarters on top of the plank style baseboards. The owner of the pub is hand staining all the trim so I am waiting for him now that the floors are in.. taking his sweet time and I have other stuff to get to.

@Sofia  @GravitySucks

For the record and just to be completely clear so we can put this controversy to bed where I'll be having my way with Sofia because she has a thing for overly muscular macho men!!! The 3/8 GAP at the top of the picture is not a STAIR!! It is the last row/line of planks on the main/top floor where the aforementioned baseboard will be installed next week!!!  Stairs do NOT require any expansion space. THE PICTURE IS TAKEN FROM THE TOP FLOOR LOOKING DOWN!



Now look what you've made me do!! >:(

I've been mean to KSM before.  Why would I hold back now? 

How do you take the heat in Texas during summer if the power goes out?  Is there a charity program for people who can't afford A/C units in Texas?

In home construction, 3/8" gap is acceptable.  Up to 4/8", actually.  That is the industry standard.
