IMHO, a total waste of time and material when you can get a sheet of
1/4" hardboard for $10 and lay it on top of the MDO.
Use the oak to build fiddles to hold the hardboard in place.
Just my thought.
Here is the problem with flooring stock. If you use nails
(toe-nailing) to hold the flooring strips, you will defeat the purpose
of having a wood top. You dont what nails all over the place. These
will get in the way of dog holes or whatever. On the other hand if you
just glue them in place they will not be as good as rectangular strips
that you glue, since the flooring strips are not flat on the bottom.
