Beyond hand scraped Walnut floors: additional texture options
In addition to hand scraped Walnut floors, Carlisle offers a range of additional techniques for texturing Walnut floors, including three methods that only Carlisle craftsmen can apply.
- Hit or Miss. This technique adds saw swirl patterns to new boards to recreate the look of timber that was cut at early sawmills.
- Watermill. This process recreates the look of floorboards that were rough sawn at riverside watermills more than 100 years ago. This method reproduces the look of boards that were never planed or scraped smooth and that had saw marks in the wood which were smoothed over by generations of foot traffic.
- Brushed. Using special brushes, Carlisle craftsmen “un-smooth” the Walnut floorboards to give them a unique worn texture.
- Timeworn. Older floors are naturally worn down by foot traffic and the passage of time, producing distinct patterns in the wood grain. Our proprietary Timeworn process recreates these patterns to give new Walnut floorboards the appearance of surfaces that have been lived on for more than three lifetimes.
- Footworn. This technique recreates the subtle erosion of floors, where softer grains are worn away more quickly than denser grains to create a distinctive undulating pattern in the floorboards.
