I visited a Welcome center in CA and they featured a floor made up of
sort sections of 2X4 on end. Ya know the end grain is wear resistant.
Q: I wonder how long the ends were.
seems like a good idea. any hints ??
Bush says that he does not need approval from the U.N.to wage
war.& he didn't need the approval of the voters to become
president either,did he?

Don't. End grain can be subject to cracking pretty easily unless glued into a
matrix and clamped until dry. 2x4s are soft wood and would be a problem as it
dents easily, and absorbs water like a sponge. The idea has merit if hardwood
is used and sealed properly.
