Two floor patterns I drew.

I see that most people choose the herringbone floor layout and a few others lay them horizontally.

I sketched up a couple floor plans in Google Sketchup.

I would sure like some opinions on "the look" and the functionality.

Thanks in advance!:)

The look is very cool.

The function however is questionable, I would be leary of increasing the number of cuts on my floor. If your cuts are not exact you will introduce gaps into the floor.

They look great, but it seems like a lot of cuts.

I like the look but the point of the herringbone is to avoid any seams perpendicular to the peel action that might catch the peel. The herringbone works well for this.

As to the look, I like the first sketch the best. I wouold consider rotating it 45 degrees.

As to the functionality, I too am concerned about the number of cuts and the gaps that an uneven cut would exacerbate. :eek:

If electing to go with either design, I would grind/sand the floor before getting the sides too high to insure a flat floor.

Remember, the whole thing will be covered up by the dome and hard to see. Most people will be so amazed that you have a pizza oven, they won't notice the floor.

I just laid my herringbone. It was hard enough getting that thing level. While, I think your floor designs are cool, my suggestion is to keep it simple.
