Hand-scraped wood floors also known as hand sculptured, are very popular and trending now. They have a rugged, handcrafted look. This unique hand crafted wood flooring stands out from the crowd for its natural good looks and it’s resilience to heavy family traffic.
How Are Hand-Scraped Floors Produced?
In the past, woodworkers would scrape the lumber by hand, with the help of a tool called a drawknife. In doing so, the woodworkers would make the surface even. But, would have visible scrape marks and indentations in the wood to give it a more natural look. Now the process is much more sophisticated, with the use of machinery usually equipped with wire brushes to give the wood its distressed look. Which, now allows for many different types of materials to be used.
