We are glueing down Engineered Oak onto concrete in our L-shaped hallway. How do you change directions? Do you have to use a transition strip? Can't you router a groove on cut ends in order to tongue and grove fit?

Sorry if I missed this issue in other posts!

Thanks for your help.

Alright fish this is a real easy way to dress up a turn in a hallway:

I've heard numerous names and terms for this kind of turn but I call it an English weave. Its basically a herring bone joint at the end of the board, you run your first row down the hall next to the wall, this board runs past the corner the same distance as your board is wide, you then lock another board into this running it the opposite way down the hall and around the corner, you run your second row to extend beyond the first and run another row in the opposite direction that locks in to this board and so on and so on until you've completed the turn.. Basically the end of each board locks into the side of the board running the opposite direction in the second portion of the hall. You wont be able to lock every tongue and groove together but enough to keep it tight and flat, if your nailing down this will be very easy, much easier than my truly crap explanation!..

I've attached a link here to what this should look like as I just read my post and confused myself!. Good luck its dead easy ... .php?t=160
