The oak floors for this home were made firstly by printing on high quality photo paper, pictures of real floors altered in photoshop to the correct scale 1/12. You can find many floor pictures on the internet all taken from display samples of real wood. After letting the paper dry for several days, I then glue the paper floor to 1/16 inch thick clear polystyrene sheets. I use tacky glue watered down a bit to spread evenly like wall paper paste. Rub the air bubbles out (you can see through the back of the clear poly) and then I clamp the work by laying the floor on a flat table with a sheet of mdf on top and heavy weights to hold it very flat and tight. Any weight will do, tool boxes, paint cans, whatever is available in the workshop. I let that dry for a day or two and then I apply several coats of "Krylon" UV-resistant gloss which is a clear acrylic coating. If you take the time and do it right you get perfect flat really deep shiny floors that look 100% real.
