I have oak wood floor just put down in my kitchen. (As you know I have
some rough cut lumber from a flooring company before it is made into
Why on my floor do the stains appear different shades? SOme are
lighter/darker that others. I think they were made that way but how do
they do that? If I build something with this wood and stain it will I
have this problem? On a floor it looks ok but If I were building
somethign I dont think I would want it to do that.
Quite possibly, your floor is just finished with poly and no stain. Wood
floors, especially "rustic" or "vintage" grade will have many differences in
shading from board to board. Heartwood and sapwood will vary in color
naturally in just about every wood specie. --dave
