Looks like you scraped that by hand. I’m impressed. My floor guy uses a big machine from Germany. I think it’s made by Hummel but it takes 1/4” off the top

Almost did
Chemicals softened it
175 & tynex stripping brush did most of the heavy lifting so to speak
But these scrapers zip tied and duct taped to my spare mop pole did wonders!!
Jarrah is Aussie native, like mahogany but it’s even tougher!!
Could probably only do this procedure with mahogany - Jarrah type of floors...

There wasn’t enough meat left in the jarrah to sand it back or use a machine!
Was going to have to be replaced

Thats mahogany floor
I didn’t strip it and go all out like I did with the jarrah floor
Did that for my mate Johnny
Poor bastard had to close due to corona
Was only open 9months just starting to get going, cruel!!
Landlord wouldn’t help when he moved in so I scrubbed/cleaned/sealed only - no stripping!
There goes his biz and my bottomless glass of free beer, best payment for a job I ever had haha!!!!
