I went to work yesterday to sand a floor, and to my delight encountered #1 common red oak. It was one of my dad’s favorite flooring types, and I don’t see much of it these days, as most designers recommend select grade material now. The argument is that select is a better grade of flooring, but my dad always said, and I tend to agree, that #1 has much more character, and makes for a more interesting floor. We’re putting a stain on that floor this afternoon, and I’ll be posting some pictures as soon as it’s done.
