My client is choosing between two very different woods for their flooring throughout the house. The samples are both very nice, so I thought I’d share them.  Both of these are finished with clear Rubio Monocoat, an environmentally friendly wood finish that is more matte than conventional floor finishes.  We are also hoping that since it is not shiny it might not show wear as much. It is much easier to repair scratches in this type of finish.

The first sample shown here is Rift Sawn Oak. It has a very regular grain pattern of tight straight lines. It is a medium warm brown color.
