July 5, 2009: Floor Covering, from Pennies
Not JC Penny's, US pennies.
I'm partial to hardwood floors and especially love the look of end grain wood blocks, like they had in old machine shops.
But I must admit this looks pretty cool... so would $20 gold pieces.

Cheaper than most flooring options...

The epoxy they are embedded in, and the epoxy that covers them, probably cost more than the pennies. I'm sure the labor did.

I like the look and the construction seems to be safe from slipping all around on them.

I really like the look of that.

I wonder if they snuck any wheat pennies in there?

I wonder how long it took to put them all down.
xoxoxoBruce Sunday Jul 5 11:03 AM
Looks to me like they were pre-made in square tiles, then laid and epoxied over.

Bet they are hell to cut with a tile saw!

I wonder if it'd be attractive to lightning and/or bad for cell phones.

Cutco. I have a pair that's older than me and they can still turn a penny into a cork screw.

I'd like to visit that place... and drop a penny on the floor... see how long it takes someone to notice... and then to start looking for where it came from...

Way to blow someone's mind, Zen.

Loitering there would make you a PENNY LOAFER.

I found 2p on the floor today.

When the Mint finally eliminates the penny that floor will be worth a lot more.

Anyone interested in a little higher income can go to Lincoln, Montana.

A floor like that makes no cents.

Dangerous place. You can't walk through there without stepping on a copperhead.
