What is hand scraped hardwood flooring?
This is similar to what is popular as wood flooring. This looks like an old, worn, distressed flooring. The technique used in making it is called hand scraping. Hand scraped wood floor comes in various varieties with uniqueness in each and every look. This technique dates back to the era when the mechanical working tools were not even invented. In the olden days, the wooden planks were sawn by hand for
flooring. It is a fact that the hand-cut planks appear uneven and irregular in look when compared to the modern day, machined output.
Technically speaking, the traditional hand-sawn wood flooring is hand scraped for finishing and removing any irregularities and undulations on the floor. The hand scraping was a method to give a finished look earlier, now it is the complete opposite of what was done earlier. These days, hand scraping is the technique to bring out the worn out and distressed look and feel.
With the technical advancement and the availability of mechanical equipment, the hand scraped flooring is done by a machine rather than literally hand scraping. Either, it is done by hand or machine, the end product looks exactly like a worn and distressed floor. The look actually gives a feel as if it has a rich heritage and a story to tell.
Where can I have this?
This technique can be carried out on solid or engineered floors to recreate that old, pre-historic kind of look. As a matter of fact, the hand scraped look involves more labour and process, therefore, it may cost slightly more than the mechanized way of creating it. However, the traditional hand scraped hardwood floor has some kind of uniqueness compared to the one done by a machine.
