Princeton Maple is a light golden-brown colored floor. With a 2mm thick SLICED top wear layer this 100% hand scraped product has a closed, subdued grain with medium figuring and uniform texture. Boards will have variation in terms of color, tone and grain. Natural wood characteristics such as knots, mineral streaks and some man-made filler marks are to be expected in this product.
