Local Ash species wood, planed to 3/4, T/G myself with “low end” equipment
Gunstock primary stain, counterstain with Dark Walnut to bring out grain, lightly top sanded, final over-stain with Gunstock. Four coats floor poly. All Minwax products.
I really love the grain that ash provides and is abundant ‘round here (‘til the Emerald Ash Borer kills them all off, that is) I even used some of “wormy” pieces to give the floor that “old timey” effect reminiscent of two hundred year old cabin floors. The pictures here don’t do the colors and grain patterns justice.
For my new den remodel, formerly the master bedroom. Has kept me quite busy all summer, but quite a fun project! 144 sq ft of floor, and stacks of finished flooring all over the house !
