    Default Att: Larry. A Stained Floor

    G'day, Larry, seeing as we sort of hijacked the other man's thread I'd thought I'd start a new one regarding some pictures of my approach to floor board staining.
    Let us know what ya think?



    FIRST UP THE FLOOR IS TAPED UP INTO MANAGABLE SECTIONS TO ELIMINATE OVERLAPS


    BRILLIANT TRADESMAN APPLIES STAIN WITH STAIN PAD


    ONCE THE FIRST RUN IS DONE WE ARE READY TO FILL IN THE BLANKS


    READY FOR THE FINISHING COATS (3) OF TWO PACK POLURETHANE


    ALMOST FINISHED WITH THE STAIN APPLICATION


    EACH COAT IS LIGHTLY CUT BACK BETWEEN THE COATINGS


    THIS SHOT GIVES A BIT OF AN INDICATION OF THE COLOUR

    Hi bro, I was able to get into your album on picasa . 11pm finish ahhh that brings back memories. Great work
    I love this trade. I dont think that people realize the amount of work and heart that goes into finishing a floor. Well done bro, it is a pleasure to know you......Larry

    Great looking floor.
    I can only imagine the prep work and the dedication to do something like this.
    You blokes are definately craftsmen, not tradesmen.
    Hooroo.

    G'day Larry.
    I've been away for 2 weeks. Am only now getting caught up with the backlog at work.

    I'm going to brisbane to inspect a floor tomorrow (tues). One section of the floor has verticle movement between the Tongue and the groove. About 3 sq/M. The rest of the floor is fine. All came from the same machine run. Ultraset and staple to Y/Tongue. I'm thinking the glue has not bonded, thus allowing movement.

    We'll see what develops..
    Hooroo.
    Regards, Trevor
