Installing 5" 3/4 clear braz. cherry over aquaB over 3/4" osb.

Brought the wood and left in the house for acclimation a week back. When testing for moisture reads 0-1% for the wood and subfloor - 2-3%. Is my meter bad or is this normal? too hard to believe.

never worked with this wood!

Are cleats better or staples? Any insight would help.

Thanks guys. I buy my splines before hand at the supply store.:thumbup:

After removing carpet I noticed that there is a concrete lip coming from under the fireplace. Folks would like the hardwood going under the fireplace...so I guess jamb cutting it.

Are there any issues with hardwood corner getting tucked over concrete for that 2 1/2" area? The direction of the hardwood on concrete is length wise.

Are there any issues with wood laying on top of concrete in that 2" area in your experience?
