plus special offers Fine Homebuilding spoke with craftsman Tom Ourada about building his award-winning artisan wood floors We recently received a couple submissions to our Reader Project gallery from Tom Ourada the craftsman behind the wood floors that grabbed so much attention on Finehomebuildingcom and on our Facebook page His Blue Pine Swirl floor won the 2014 Floor of the Year Award in the Member’s Choice category Tom runs Ourada Designs in Spokane Wash His lifelong passion for drawing ultimately led to the creation of these artisan floors a hands-on process involving Tom from the sawmill to the customer’s home Tom agreed to walk us through what it takes to create floors like these FHB: Where do you draw your inspiration from TO: I draw my inspiration from the limitations of a job Give me some parameters and I’ll run with them It’s like solving a puzzle where I get to make the pieces I enjoy learning by pushing myself with challenging projects Each floor is a new experience and brings the opportunity to grow FHB: I’m guessing it took a while to reach this level of craftsmanship When did you complete your first project of this kind and how has your technique evolved over time TO: I have been working on floor art for about three years but I have been applying my perspective to other projects all my life My flooring technique evolved from standard flooring techniques to fabricating flooring from trees with odd shapes My mind’s eye sees the potential of a curved tree and that creates the challenge FHB: On Ouradadesignscom you say “Handling a 3-ton log presents its own problems” What are some of those problems What are some considerations you make at the beginning when you’re staring at a log that you know is destined to become a floor How did the pistol grip log in your Blue Pine Swirl complicate the milling process TO: My floors are getting flatter and faster to produce but as with any art it has to feel right I can’t rush the design My first attempt at floor art was the Blue Pine Swirl which I finished over a year and half ago I was fortunate to have come across an old dead curved log that I could see as a floor We used a boom truck to lift it onto the mill The trick was to keep the log in a horizontal plane As the mill traversed its straight path we pivoted the log on the track It took two guys two days to cut 10 curved slabs of pistol-butt blue pine Again a challenge to learn from Now I can do the same job alone in about four hours I am always on the lookout for materials When I’m driving I’m hunting and writing down the addresses of potential floor logs The ideal log is curved but it also can lie flat Cutting a flat log helps the kiln process FHB: What is your drying process TO: I kiln dry all the wood to about 8% to prepare it for its new environment And the wood needs to meet NWFA standards prior to installation I try to keep a fair amount of kiln-dried boards available prior to starting a project FHB: Something I noticed when reviewing all the photos you sent is how simple the job site looks What tools and hardware do you bring to a job like this TO: I use an 18-v jigsaw and an 18-v circular saw to do most of the work Once the floor is glued I use an electric planer to flatten any bumps For detail work I bring in the scroll saw router grinder and Dremel When store-bought filler doesn’t get the color right I mix my own Then I bring in the sanders and buffers And I can’t forget the vacuum broom and dustpan FHB: You do a fine job reflecting the natural world in your work as shown in the inlaid pinecone and needle cluster Where does it fall in difficulty compared to other tasks in the project TO: People always ask if it’s hard It isn’t hard; it just takes a little longer to find the best way to achieve it FHB: One of the photos shows the Buck and Barbed Wire centerpiece on a platform Did you build this offsite and transport it for installation If so how do you plan the process so it sits where you want on the floor What is the buck’s head made of TO: I’ve built floors on-site and in my shop and then shipped them to the site to be puzzled back together and glued down Either way the designing and building requires me to see most of the boards at once so I lean them around the room to get an idea of what I have to work with Then it’s a matter of arranging and cutting The whole Buck and Barbed Wire floor was cut to fit in my shop The detailed centerpiece was a partially finished product that was laid out on plywood I shipped it to the site with the surrounding unfinished flooring This project required a lot of detail work To alleviate a lengthy intrusion into the customer’s home I measured the room reproduced its dimensions in my shop and built accordingly The buck head is made from many species of wood that I handpicked for color and texture To add depth to the wood I tinted it but kept the grain visible FHB: On Ouradadesignscom you talk about feeling out the direction of a project an exchange between you and your customer How does that work TO: The inspiration for the Buck and Barbed Wire floor was a story the customer told me while searching his 500 acres for logs He told me about “Moses” the biggest buck he’d ever seen His enthusiasm was inspiring I wanted to create something as memorable As the wood dried I sketched several designs based on the slab shapes I asked about furniture placement and the purpose of the room to guide the designs Once the customer picked a design and the wood was ready I placed the main curved features on the floor and filled in around them Then I focused on the buck and its surroundings FHB: What’s next for you TO: I’m starting another floor in a customer-built cabin It’s a pretty busy time of year I’m also getting ready to build a portable booth for home-show events which will showcase my floors walls and countertops FHB: What advice do you have to offer others working toward this kind of craftsmanship TO: Don’t be afraid to fail when trying new things Anything is possible if you just break it down into small pieces Messing up is just an opportunity to learn Tom Ourada owner of Ourdada Designs standing on his NFWA award-winning Blue Pine Swirl floor Ourada Design floors are custom-made starting with the log selection and milling process After kiln-drying the slabs Tom arranges them around the room to see what he has to work with Tom starts a floor by installing the curved features and filling around them To get the color right in details like this pine cone and needle cluster Tom mixes his own filler Tom builds his floors both on-site and in his shop as seen here with the buck’s-head centerpiece Tom works out from the centerpiece using relatively few tools The finished centerpiece is made of many

with Shyam Sunder Chaudhary who was left paralysed in the 26/11 attack his wife and mother Head Constable Arun Jadhav and others at the inauguration of The Indian Express Facebook Stories of Strength exhibition in Mumbai on Saturday (Express Photo by Nirmal Harindran) Top News When well-meaning folk tell her emptily that this too shall pass Shruti Kamble usually knows they haven’t the faintest idea what kind of challenges she faces eight years since her husband a staffer at the Taj Mahal Palace Hotel died after taking a bullet to his abdomen during the 26/11 attacks Shruti knows the truth is that the grief doesn’t pass On Saturday morning as on the morning of every 26/11 since 2009 she was up early By 4 am she had already spent an hour in the kitchen and was on the roof of her home in Gorai nearly 50 km from South Mumbai placing on a tray her husband’s favourite food a cup of masala chai and a few squares of kaju katli his favourite mithai for the birds to carry away “The pain is as fresh now even eight years later” she says But Saturday brought a rare moment of catharsis and clarity when Shruti met Bhisham Mansukhani a travel journalist trapped in the Taj that night Bhisham and Shruti’s paths may well have never crossed their worlds far apart even if connected irreversibly by Rajan Kamble “He was so brave His bravery saved us that night” Bhisham told Shruti soon after they were introduced at the inauguration of the 26/11 Stories of Strength exhibition hosted by The Indian Express Bhisham was seated right across the couch where guests laid Rajan Kamble after he was hit Bhisham narrated how his mother was sitting nearby praying while a doctor couple in the room tried to stanch the blood gushing from his gut Three times Shruti asked “Did he say anything” Between November 28 and December 3 when Rajan died Shruti visited him in hospital everyday but he couldn’t speak The last conversations she had with her husband were by means of facial expressions and nods and grunts that he managed As a small group of survivors of Mumbai’s worst terror attack and families of victims gathered at the venue of the inauguration it was clear that the significance of remembering even eight years later is in the re-examination of their personal tragedies through new prisms(Express photo by Nirmal Harindran) “He spoke only to give us the names of Taj staffers who had escaped and who we should contact so they could send help to our location Even though he was in great pain he didn’t scream even once At one point he was chanting god’s name” Bhisham told Shruti Wiping tears Shruti told him she had waited eight years to hear this account “Many people told me he had been brave but this is the first time I am meeting someone who was with him then and saw everything that happened I knew Rajan was completely selfless and courageous and now I have heard first hand what he did” As a small group of survivors of Mumbai’s worst terror attack and families of victims gathered at the venue of the inauguration it was clear that the significance of remembering even eight years later is in the re-examination of their personal tragedies through new prisms Kia Scherr 60 has launched peace initiatives with the Mumbai Police as well as several educational institutes Express photo by Nirmal Harindran While Kia Scherr 60 barely understands Hindi she had no trouble understanding Shruti Kia lost her husband Alan and daughter Naomi eight years ago she knew exactly what Shruti meant when she said she’s still to find real closure “This occasion to meet others will have a ripple effect more of us will be able to share our journeys with others in similar situations” Kia said For Anjali Kulthe a nurse at the Cama and Albless Hospital that was one of the sites of the attack being able to converse with the Chief Minister of Maharashtra about how she responded to the call of duty was an occasion to set right an oversight “So many others who did what their uniforms demanded of them received no recognition I was able to convey that to the CM sir even if it’s been eight years” she said Kundan Singh Kathayat now 80 years old is a former Naval submariner “I am willing to do my duty for the country even today” he said eyes glistening microphone in one hand and a tremor in the other as he gesticulated “I was a jawan I will fight for the country again if called upon” But there was one thing he could not do and he mustered enough courage to tell the CM that His son Govind has mostly conquered clinical depression after being diagnosed with schizophrenia following a nerve-racking three days hidden in a Colaba restaurant while the siege of the Taj continued “But wherever he goes for a job interview they tell him he doesn’t have enough confidence Could you please issue a circular instructing companies to consider and encourage him” Maharashtra CM Devendra Fadnavis on Saturday inaugurated a video exhibition organised by The Indian Express titled stories of strength reflecting the lives of some of the victims of 26/11 terror attack following a Panel discussion conducted by Praveen Swami at Kala Ghoda Mumbai Express photo by Nirmal Harindran The CM having just watched a video clip of Govind shot as part of the The Indian Express-Facebook-Instagram Stories of Strength project responded: “Nobody can say your son lacks confidence I have no doubt companies will support him” Overcome with emotion Kathayat could barely say a thank you but saluted before taking his seat Devika Rotawan who was only 10 when a bullet hit her leg at the Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus was meeting Mumbai Police Head Constable Arun Jadhav in an annual tradition He put an arm around her and asked about her studies Jadhav was the sole survivor in a police Qualis ambushed by two gunmen that night He Devika and some other survivors have invariably bumped into each other at memorial events held until a couple of years back Meanwhile Bhisham invited Shruti and her sons to an event in Panchgani in mid-2017; she accepted “I feel a little guilty I don’t know why I did not reach out earlier and talk to her” he said The Panchgani event is for youth to understand personal growth in the face of adversity and Bhisham hopes to share his account of the night of 26/11 along with Shruti’s account two narratives of loss and of strength For
