This project required us to source and create distressed oak flooring for our customer's home. Each board is selected, marked and cut to its maximum size. In this case the longest boards were 5 meters long and varied in width from 200mm to 460mm. Having been brought to thickness the oak flooring boards are half lap jointed and stress grooved for stability. We then hand plane each board before distressing and sanding.
The colour is mixed to our client's requirements and we stain by hand so that we can manipulate the colour to leave slightly darker or lighter areas. This allows us to highlight the character in the oak whilst still maintaining an overall tone. Our distressed oak flooring is pre-finished in our workshop before our own team fit the floor, in this case the floor is held down with fine shank rosehead nails.
