Distressed without handscraped does it exsist?

Want the look but not the wavy look of handscrape. Is there a 3/4" solid hardwood floor out there???

Try going with a #1 Common or #2 Common grade of hardwood flooring. You usually see 'Clear' or 'Select & Better' used. Here are the general descriptions for each grade of flooring:

"Clear" is free of defects though it may have minor imperfections. This grade is further identified by cut, CLEAR PLAIN, CLEAR QUARTERED

"Select & Better" is almost clear, but contains more natural characteristics such as knots and color variations. This grade is further identified by cut, SELECT PLAIN, SELECT QUARTERED

# 1 Common has a variegated appearance, light and dark colors, knots, flags and worm holes.

# 2 Common is rustic in appearance and allow all wood characteristics of the species.

Hope this helps!

Try Chelsea Plank's restoration collection. they are distressed but not scraped in 3,4,5,6"random width. Love them a lot. Let me know if you like to see some pics.

I am seriously considering these floors. Are you happy with them? Are they strong and were they easy to install?

I second the Chelsea Plank - awesome floor in Restoration series - perfect substitute for that fake ripple handscraped look.
