The 18th century home has an approx. 1000 sq ft dining and living room with 2” X ¾ quarter sawn oak flooring. The original flooring was dark, almost hiding the grain.
The floor sanded up quite beautifully with the medullary rays showing quite prominently demonstrating that this was an exclusive floor to originally install.
The customer wanted to use a dark stain so Dura Coat Dark Walnut was used with Bona Woodline oil based topcoat.
This facility required a sand and finish for their Bowling Alley, the Piano Room and the Sanctuary Hallway.
The flooring in the bowling alley was maple and had a combination of surface scratching and in one place near the sink a bit of cupping. This cleaned up well and Bona Woodline was used as a finish.
The Piano room had several deep stains in the floor – it appears from overflowing flower pots. The customer only wanted to have 6 feet out from the walls sanded and refinished due to a large rug covering the rest of this 600 square foot room. The stains were sanded out and Bona Woodline was used as topcoat in this room.
The Sanctuary hallway had weathered and a dull appearance. This required a light sand, to bare wood, and Bona Woodline was the topcoat selected here.
This 18th century home required a sand and recoat with tung oil. The kitchen and dining rooms had new 3” bare solid oak installed and required its first finish. The historical side of the home, in the fireplace room, required a sand and recoat with tung oil.
This modern home had 3 ¼” engineered oak flooring that was quite scratched up and worn in places. The staircase also required sanding and recoating.
The staircases were resanded and the floor was given a light (320 grit) scuff to allow the topcoat to adhere.
Bona Woodline was the topcoat applied to this home.
This 1500 square foot condo had oak flooring throughout and the new owners had installed 3” solid oak in the kitchen as well.
The floor was sanded down to the bare wood and spice brown stain was applied. Two coats of Bona Woodline topcoat were applied.
This home had suffered from leaky basement walls approx. 15 years ago and was repaired. The solid oak (with oak plugs) hardwood floor was extensively damaged and a portion was replaced and repaired. In addition carpet was laid over the oak floor and the floor was covered with staples.
The frolicking otters are the subject of Otter Delight.
The floor is constructed of oak and birch laminate. The herringbone pattern means to represent waves on the water and the grain in the birch, although subtle, represents the currents in the water the otters play in.
There are over 200 herringbone pieces in the floor all handmade and 10 panels of otters.
