Miroslav Bentley Kubala sent some photos of his beautiful cordwood garage/storage studio in Prague (Czech Republic). Miro is an artist and a fancier of things automotive/motorcyle and sound related.
In his cordwood garage/storage area he decided to lay a cordwood floor.
He intermixed the cordwood with brick and stone.
Here are instructions from Miro:
- Clean the floor.
- Cut slices of wood (hardwood or a rot resistant softwood) 3/4″ to 1 inch.
- Seal the top of the slices so they don’t get stained by the grout.
- Glue the slices to the floor
- Fill the gaps with grout (Miro used a mortar/bentonite/acryl solution
- Seal the floor
The juxtaposition of stone, brick and cordwood is very compelling.
Miro built a rugged post and beam framework and then infilled with cordwood.
On his gable end he placed 62 Jack Daniels Whiskey bottles.
On the inside he has stone, brick, block, cordwood, stucco and a fireplace!
Miro has put attractive and artistic motifs into the walls (including a rubber duckie:0)
Here is Miroslav on one of his machines. He loves speed, good styling, music, cordwood, travel and fun.
Miro builds speakers and loves good audio. He claims this one by Kraftwerks is the best he has ever heard. Since he is a master of sound, I believe him.
