#1 Red Oak with a Walnut Border

This is a home that we did in Harrison, AR, back in 2000.  The owners of the home wanted to break up the large room into spaces for furniture placement, and borders worked out great for this.   We used  2 1/4  #1  Red Oak for most of the floor, with Select 2 1/4 Walnut for the borders.   The borders are done with “Log Cabin” corners, which overlap, on into the other.  This floor is finished with a natural satin finish, and turned out very nice.  See the pictures below.

4 Inch #1 Red Oak Stained Provincial

This was a new home in Russellville, AR that we did back in the year 2000.   It consists of 4 Inch  #1 red oak with a Provincial Stain.   We did over 2000 square feet of floor in this home and a set of stair treads and risers also.  It turned out very nice as you can see.     This is one of the most common types of floors that we do.   I would say that 4 inch floors are the most common width that we install, and we probably install more red oak than any other species.   Red Oak is very common and there is a lot of matching red oak furniture.   Of course, mixing and matching different types of wood in a home never looks bad.



Reclaimed Red Oak

There are about as many kinds of distressed floors as there are individual tastes.    We have clients ask about distressed floors all the time, nearly weekly.  My most used comment about distressed floors is, “One person’s distressing is another person’s destruction”.    A lot of people, in past years myself included, would just cringe at the thought of a distressed or beat up floor.  But distressed floors have become very popular in the past few years, and we’ve done our share of them.

They come in every form.   From what I would call a “light distressing” which would include some “worm hole” looking areas, a few deep natural looking scratches, and various dents and dings.  To a wholesale hand scraping, which we have done quite a bit of, and that has it’s own section on the website.  There are saw mark distresses, and what we call “ship’s deck” which is done with a chisel or a gouge, and takes out a pretty good chunk of wood here and there.

I would also include the “reclaimed” wood in this category.   We have access to suppliers that have wood that has been reclaimed out of old barns or factories that have a special patina that you just can’t get with what most would call “new wood”.    This type of material can get very expensive, mainly just because of supply and demand….or mainly just supply, because there is a very limited quantity of this material around.  These types of floors really give the client a floor that is truly unique however.
