The production of hand scraped hardwood flooring
The perfect hand scraped hardwood flooring has an imperfect aging appearance with uneven surface, knots, cracks, dents and even knife drawing, all of which have filled with long history from time. However, such an aging and antique looking of hand scraped hardwood flooring is made from craftsmen by hand from ordinary hardwood flooring, with simple work tools and their talents.
The production of hand scraped hardwood flooring is determined by three factors:
1.Talented and experienced craftsmen
2.Appropriate hardwood flooring
3.Color stains of hand scraped finishing
Not all of hardwood species for flooring are suitable for hand scraped finishing. Only those hardwood floorings with medium density & hardness, with beautiful grains and little knots are the best option for hand scraped production, such as hickory hardwood flooring, oak hardwood flooring, birch hardwood flooring & maple hardwood flooring. All of these four hardwoods are manufactured in huge amount for antique hand scraped hardwood flooring.
The talented and experienced craftsman is the key point in the production. The skills of experience craftsmen involve scooping, carving, denting, gouging& knife drawing on the imperfectsurface of hardwood flooring. The working tools for hand scraping process by craftsmen or workers are very simple, even primitive: scooper, chisel, planer, drawknife and gouge. All of these tools could be used by hand only. It can be imagined easily how much time and how much effort it takes for skillful workers to make those distinct hand scraped hardwood flooring.
According to the different appearance of hardwood flooring planks, experienced workers with talents are supposed to create the most appropriate looking for each hardwood planks by using the above skills.
The excellentcombination of these skills on the hardwood flooring planks would finally give rise to the artistic works of antique hand scraped hardwood flooring.

Color staining in a most suitable hue for those floorings is very important too. The wrong color stains, not matching the level of hand scraped finishing and hardwood species, would finallydestroy all the works and efforts in the beginning. Usually, hand scraped hardwood flooring would be stained into dark colors, or grey colors which would present people with a feeling of good old times and aging history.
What is wenge wood?
Wenge wood, with its scientific name Milletia laurentii, is an endangered hardwood in central Africa, mostly in Congo, Mozambique&Tanzania. Wenge wood trees could grow to be 30meter high, with trunk diameter about 1.2meter wide.
Due to its popularity in furniture, wood flooring & veneer in deco, wenge wood has been undergoing excessive logging with over 50% reduction in the past 30 years.
Wenge hardwood takes pride in its gorgeous beauty of wood grains and colors: dark chocolate wood ground color decorated with liner or wavy golden wood grains. This outstanding feature of wenge wood absorbs a prevailing admiration & application among designers & architects for interior & exterior decoration of houses.
Wenge wood has hard surface& coarse texture, excellent stability in dimensions & good resistance against decay & termites, similar to other exotic hardwood such as Iroko ( African Teak) Wood, Merbau wood. That is why wenge wood flooring and wenge wood furniture are so popular now.
With very low luster, chocolate –color wenge wood contains rich resin inside. Thus staining colors to wenge wood is not practical, in the angle of efficiency. As a result, oil finishing is the popular way of finishing process for wenge wood. As to the un-finishing surface, that is never an choice for wenge flooring, wenge furniture or wenge cabinets, due to the toxicity of wenge wood.
The taxicity of wenge wood is never severe, to human bodies or animals. But wenge powder does bring about irritation of eyes or skins and slight effect on nervous system, even causing pains in belly. In history, fine wenge powder was used by people to numb fish for fishing.
