The boards had been air drying in a covered area for about 2 yrs and then machined to thickness before going in a warming room/kiln for 6 mths after which they were machined to width, cut to length squared off then tongue and grooved all round.

No worries about derailing.

Hi what did you use to do the tongue and groove was it a spindle moulder?

Nope, router & table.

Not a huge fan of spindle moulders, you've got a better chance of survival standing in front of a chainsaw when the chain snaps then a spindle moulder when a cutter comes out, believe me they stop at nothing not even brick walls!
