Showroom Display Samples!

This is my latest project of making a display wall for the various types of hardwood floors that my company distributes. (Which was a nice change of pace from sitting behind a desk!)

All were made using baltic birch plywood, and gluing and blind nailing the flooring. They were then run through the wide belt sander to flatten them. Each finished panel has aluminum C channel on the sides to clean them up, but I decided to leave the top and bottom exposed to show the wear layers of the flooring.

Lines were cut through the center to allow using two different finishes to show the difference between Waterbased finish and Swedish finish (oil based acid cure).

Each sample has had our logo, finish type, and the wood specie and grade, CNC routed into the panels.

The bottom of each panel has three coats of Swedish and the top has three coats of Waterbased.

The first two pictures show the completed samples hung on the wall using aluminum Z channel. The third picture is a close up of a completed panel of Tigerwood. The last picture shows the various types of feature stip used to make borders. It consists of Wenge, Walnut, Peruvian Walnut, Purpleheart, Jatoba, Cherry, and Maple. I used rift and quartered red oak between these to keep the linear flow of the feature strip.

Any questions, comments, or criticism are welcome!
