This was a very challenging floor! This is a hickory floor that has a hand scraped texture and hand eased edges. Carlisle calls it footworn, we call it awesome. But it is very challenging to glue and nail this plank flooring and then hand sand it to preserve the texture. This to be followed by hand dye'ing and hand staining!
The designer on this project gave us a sample that she wanted to match. It happened to be a veneer'ed board that was actually mahogany! So with this in mind we utilized W.D. Lockwood aniline dye and stain to get the color we needed out of the hickory floor. Finished with x-matte, we think it came out great.
