So the short version is that I long to do an earthen floor in a conventional house, maybe this summer. So, i could just research, do it, right or wrong, and do it again. Maybe make a short YouTube video, and call it a day.
But the more I think about conquering this task the more I think how great it would be to host a workshop for like minded people interested in learning this skill. Not saying I am going to do this but figured it would not hurt to gauge interest, and maybe look for someone who would be interested in teaching this workshop.  If we could line things up maybe even film it to help out others interested in this topic.
I don't know, but do you know anyone who might be able to teach this course?
Anyone interested in coming to the middle of no where GA to learn this skill?
Maybe we could toss in a farm field trip, dirt road riding skills, or something else neat.

It could be done. I think you would want areas at different stages of completion so people could work all stages. Otherwise there is a significant amount of time between layers drying and oil applications curing.
 
This. Exactly this. This is what my therapist has been talking about. And now with a tiny ad:
