Hand-scraped Solid and Engineered Wood Flooring
The hand-scraping technique is where the true artistry comes into play. Skilled craftsmen use hand tools, such as scrapers and chisels, to carefully scrape the surface of each individual plank. This process is done by hand, intentionally creating texture, grooves, and irregularities on the wood's surface. The goal is to replicate the natural, time-worn appearance of vintage, reclaimed wood.
Sanding and Finishing: After the hand-scraping is complete, the planks undergo a sanding process to smooth out any rough edges and achieve a uniform surface. This is followed by the application of a protective finish, such as polyurethane or oil-based sealant, to enhance the wood's natural beauty and provide durability. The finish also helps protect the floor from stains, scratches, and moisture.
By combining traditional craftsmanship with modern milling and finishing techniques, hand-scraped wood flooring manufacturers create unique, one-of-a-kind flooring options that bring character and warmth to any space. The result is a flooring solution that showcases the natural beauty of wood while adding a touch of rustic elegance to interior designs.
