How to create a custom made Distressed Hardwood floorcomments (0) November 9th, 2012 in Project Gallery
Distressed/handscraped floors are becoming extremely popular these days. As a hardwood floor heritage restoration specialist, I have to admit that i roll my eyes a little bit when i see an "Antiqued" or "Distressed" hardwood floor that was manufactured on a soul-less factory conveyer belt somewhere in China. While nothing can beat handscraping a real wideplank antiique hardwood floor that has already been laid for 100 years, the technique that i will show will be a close second. After attending numerous NWFA technical schools as a student and now a teacher, I have learned many old school tricks working side by side with some of the very best hardwood floor men on the planet. Creating a legit "antiqued" hardwood floor was one of the skills that i have picked up through two of my NWFA mentors Frank Kroupa and Daniel Boone. During this youtube clip, i go into detail how we would go about creating you the coolest floor in the city. I hope you enjoy the video.
