Homemade Wood Flooring – Parquet is a style of wooden floors where the wood is shaped into plates rather than planks. It is as the same as a ceramic tile floor, in a grid that starts in the middle of the floor and move the walls, ensures the cut tiles at the edges are the same size on opposite sides of the room. It is glued down over a flat wood or cement underlayment. Like all Homemade Wood Flooring, parquet should be allowed to sit in the room for a week before installation so it can adapt to the local environment.

Divide the floor into four quadrants, two intersecting lines with your chalk Snap Line, from the middle of each edge of the floor to the center of the edge of the floor opposite it. Use a square to adjust the lines when you flip them over, which means that they are 90 degrees off each other at the intersection. Spread the floor adhesive over the middle of the floor with toothed glue putty, covering a few square meters. You should still be able to see the chalk lines through the adhesive. Press the front row tiles in place at one of the four corners of the intersection so that it bordered on two sides of the lines. Press additional tiles around it; fit them tightly together by tongue and groove edge on the sides of the plates.
Spread more glue and start building from the middle of the floor to the edges of the room in a grid, using the line to keep it all straight. Add as many full tiles that will fit in the room, leaving the edges untilled. Allow the glue to set for 12 hours. Measure the left around the perimeter of the room space. Highlight tiles for each space with a pencil, then use a table saw to cut them. Cut them to be ¼ inch smaller than the space, so it leaves a gap in the wall that allows the Homemade Wood Flooring to expand with climate change. Set the tile adhesive with the cut sides against the walls. Let the cut tiles set for 12 hours.
