So, I'm having this idea of "use what you have". I have some leftover 3/4" solid red/white oak flooring that is 5" in width. Also have 3 custom oak stair treads leftover. I'm tossing around the idea of using the treads for the top, and running the flooring boards vertically in such a manner that I can create the illusion of 1 stand. On the front side, I would let the 'tongue' of the last board of one stand stick out and fit in the 'groove' of the other stand. That way I would only have to skin the two outsides, since the two middle sides would be hidden.

Hate to keep letting the extra wood just sit in my garage. Might be just enough to make it happen.

Here's a picture of my bonus room after I laid it. Yes, it was unfinished. Got high quality, hand milled for $2/sq by an Amish gentleman in Ethridge, TN.
