A real hand, scrape floor with the true antiques distressed. Look that is really popular these days, so we're gonna show you a few techniques. We can do this on-site for you. It's got a definitely more real feel to it when you get actual installers to it. You know it's not done in China on the assembly line, so we're gonna do this for you white oak, so we can do it in whatever species you want. We think white oak is probably the best we're going to show you a trick. So we just take regular, solid hardwood example that we use in here. This is engineered.
So have a look right here. This is an engineered hardwood floor, so there's lots of wear layer here. So this is what we'll be doing. We prefer to work with this medium when we're using wide planks. If we want to keep the joints tight or if we're gluing it down onto concrete right here, because it's about a quarter of an inch of white oak and then you got seven or eight plies supply with it, it's a lot more stable. So what we're going to show you how to do here as we work with the customer, we try to get a feel for what they want for the distressed look.
So what we'll do is we'll come in? The first thing we do is before an empty house. We take all the solid boards and we do it be done right here in the shop in Vancouver and our kind of it's called pillowing the edges. We do this to give it a slight bevel to it. So we'll do this on every single one of them, and it's what's going to help give us. The French bleed something you see. Quite a bit up looks really cool. So do this all by hand, it's very custom depends on how you want it done it's. How we'll do it so we do that we hand sand all the points nice and smooth.
Then we install your floor nail it down nailers here or we're going to glue it down depending on what the medium is. So with this, we figure out what you want to make it look distressed. One of the moves. One of the most important things is a hand scraper. This is the old school way of doing it, but a bunch of different little things here that we'll use and all these old things that we're going to do, walked high-heeled shoes on your floor and you want it to look.
