Hand-Scraped Wood Floors

Hand-scraped wood floors have a distressed appearance. By scraping the surface, each individual plank will have an individual texture. Hand-scraping is intended to emulate the wood floors of old where craftsmen scraped rough-hewn logs with crude hand tools to flatten wood floors as much as possible.

Hand-scraping is a way to take advantage of damaged wood floors by turning the damage into part of the style of the wood.
