This is my epic parquet floor restoration transformation video! You get to see this parquet sanded and finished from start to finish. Before and after and everything in between.
This floor is an Iroko herringbone parquet floor around 50 years old. Iroko is known for having a bad reaction with some finishes as it has salts (calcium) in the grain of the wood.
I start with a rough grit sanding, progress through to fine grits then move to the finishing sander, then filling and then again with the finishing/orbital sanders.
I love this parquet wood flooring! it has such a beautiful colour and grain. It has the iridescent ribbons that can give it such a beautiful 3D appearance.
You may notice that I completely changed direction when sanding with the big machine. This shouldn’t be news to those who have read my parquet floor sanding guide. Which can be found here:
I have to apologise for the quality of the video, I will be buying a new camera so I can get 2 shots, both with high-quality cameras.
