    David Gunton supplies all sorts of species of boards from many sources, but, most especially, wide long boards. By clicking on most pictures on this site you can see a larger version.

    Not all these photographs show finished floors. This will be because these are new stocks of which we do not have finished floor photos. Others may show floors laid in unfinished rooms - because we have not been able to get back to photograph the finished job.

    Blackbean


    This is a most exciting timber floor but we did not make it. This was snapped in Port Douglas, Australia. This is an Australian timber, blackbean. Similarly exciting floorings can be made from other highly contrasted timbers. However, the achievement of this appearance owes just as much to the skill of the floorlayer as to the beauty of the timber. This is a serious handmade floor into which a considerable amount of thought has been applied from the production of the boards all the way through to the fitting and finishing - just like we do ourselves.

    Ash



    This is a Ripple Olive Ash Floor.

    The Oak framing is also brand new. The combination is stunning and timeless.



    This is a close up of the Ripple Olive Ash. The boards are of random widths from 200mm to 300mm wide.



    This 1st grade, all white, Ash board floor is of random widths from 80mm to 160mm wide in boards up to 3.5 metres long. It is 20mm thick, tongued and grooved all around with a chamfered arris. It has been laid on the diagonal in the wonderfully angular attic in an otherwise very Gothic Victorian mansion. The lay of the boards draws attention to the strong architectural elements of the room and accentuates the sense of space by increasing the length of the sight lines.
