Antique hardwood flooring Husky Farmhouse Table

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on Fri, 02/12/2016 - 17:52

Found 120 year old mahogany hardwood flooring at The Old House Society that provided the table top. Built the subframe and legs per the standard plan. Then attached a 3/4" ODF plywood deck. Strip hardwood was nailed to the top with 1" finishing nails thru the flooring tongues. Cleaned the hardwood, applied 2 coats of shellac and 3 coats of satin polyurethane. The modification to use the strip flooring was the most tedious to get a tight fit. The antique, aged and stressed flooring gives the table a real antique look. Build time was @ 8 hours. Applying the finishes took several days of drying/curing before use. My wife loves it and I am proud of the final project.

Hardwood floorings are the main attraction of every house. Due to its beneficial features and specifications, we are choosing hardwood flooring in most of the occasion. Hardwood is now getting popular in comparison to others and it is easy to install and require less repair and maintenance. I strongly recommended hardwood flooring as due to its beneficial features and specifications.
