Nobody in the world of PGA golf can compare to Tiger Woods. I was in China a couple weeks ago and watched part of that match that he battled into the Sudden Death round and he pulled out the win after sustaining an injury to his leg and limped his way through the remainder of the match. To find out that he actually broke his leg only makes the come from behind win that much more amazing and something we can all appreciate.
The fact that there is a species of hardwood known as Tigerwood is a pure coincidence, but I figured I would try and use his victory to imply how awesome Tigerwood is. And I really do believe is it incomparable in so many ways. The contrasting rich colors combined with the whacky natural variance makes a floor that really finishes strong. (see what I did there? I alluded to Tiger Woods’ finishing strong in the context of hardwood…any who….)
A customer from the Sacramento area shares these photos and I think a common reaction to his new 5″ wide ultra luxury Westhollow hardwood. Westhollow is one of the brands that really pushes for the best harvesting techniques to practice sustainable harvesting techniques for tropical hardwoods.
I just finished cleaning up after the last patches and got the furniture back into the rooms so here you go.
- The floor was floated seamless across the family room, kitchen and entry hall. Maximum dimension is about 25 feet and the boards were run along that dimension and perpendicular to the sliding glass doors.
- The baseboard is 4″ tall x 1/2″ thick and has a 9/16″ shoe molding to make sure all the spacing gaps were covered. I used a dark 3/4″ red oak quarter round around the hearthstone that looks like it was made for the floor.
- The floor works with both the cabinets (birch with a honey spice glaze) and the coffee/end tables (natural knotty pine).
Kudos to Brooke for helping a customer with this dream flooring!
