Clear Epoxy Over Reclaimed Wood

Epoxy Product #15 on Reclaimed Wooden Floor


The floor shown in the photos was installed in a dining
room. Approximate room size was 12’ x 14’.  The lumber was 8″ – 12″ in
width and 3/4″ thick. Tongue and groove edges were routed on the boards. 6
gallons of epoxy were layered on in 7-8 applications. Epoxy was applied with
3/8″ and 1/4″ nap rollers. The final finish was not completely smooth like a
table top due to cupping in some of the boards.

The boards were bonded together because he cut heating
vents in and the cut-outs came out as one solid piece and stayed together
rather than separating back into the individual boards.

The baseboard was also made out of old lumber. The top
edge was rounded and then stained so the machined edge would appear
weathered. 3-4 coats of epoxy
were applied so it is much rougher.

The owner was definitely pleased with the results.
