Nice even stain job!!! Do you pop your grain? A freind has been trying to convince me to start water popping my floors for stain for a more even coat. He recommends a pump up bug sprayer with a real fine spray nozzle ... haven't had the guts to try it yet ...

In order to achieve what the competition cannot grasp, we must complete what they will not attempt. Nobody ever said it would be easy, but it's darn sure worth it.

WOW! That's a gorgeous floor.

Excellent work. I even like the wall color and the way it ties it all in.
Someone knew what they were doing on the design side of things.

I dont water pop but a guy I worked for once did. Take a bucket and get a big sponge and wipe the floor with the sponge to pop the grain. Really easy and quick.

We Waterpop EVERY floor we stain. Most are oak and we apply stain w/ buffer.
Stain will take darker when water popping , however the even color is consistent. I used to have anxiety attacks when staining 7+ years ago until I was schooled on waterpoping. We use a quality pump up garden sprayer and will add some denatured alcohol so it evaporates faster , then put down a commercial air mover and wipe and areas they are “wetter “ than others
The only time we don’t water pop is when the 3/8 is sanded so damn thin that water can cup the very thing groove. Which has happened and causes us to cut thin groves out , tape around void w/ blue tape and fill void w/ epoxy filler w/ the correct oxide color . The results are never the same not popping as opposed to water popping , uneven color an such. I always make clients aware and do not take jobs that may create certain issues that are not worth dealing with. We have found that homeowners regret taking on the challenge after the cost of renting subpar , uncalibrated tools , sandpaper , they’re stain job always looks horrible if they do stain and they apply an inferior finish that’s found in a big box store. A word to homeowners , Hire a pro !

Looks like red oak. I like the inch and a half widths. The extra nails keep it flat. It's a beautiful floor and staircase!
