Does anyone know how to "hand scrape" hardwood floors?


I am remodeling a house and I am putting in about 1200 square feet of reclaimed, remilled 5" plank yellow oak floors... anyway, I am looking to hand scrape them like they do in a lot of upper end homes now and I cannot find anywhere on line that explains the process, the tools needed or anything... HELP.

Thanks.

Handscraping is also another term for "distressing" the floor...giving it an older/aged look and texture.

Here's a helpful link that explains it all with steps and pictures: http://www.michaelholigan.com/Depart...=S&text_page=1

Hi there,

I see the website you referenced is no longer available. Would you be able to point me to any other sites that ' would provide detailed information?

Thanks,
