Simply Build It

Whilst many suppliers of solid wood flooring encourage the floating of solid floors you should never do it. This is an installation method for laminate and engineered flooring where the joints are tight and designed for this type of fitting. If you are going to glue the floor down then the best method is to fully bond it to the sub floor. The glue I would recommend is Rewmar MS Polymer. It is easy to use, easy to clean up and it is hazard free.

I hope this helps.

Hi Hobie
If you have trouble sourcing Rewmar MS Polymer, many other people make the product, Try Bona R850, Laybond L19 or Utzin MK100
Be careful though as most glues should not be used beyond a 6:1 ratio thickness to width. Beyond that and you should mechanicaly fix.
