Hi,
These wood floors were original to this old house. We had to do a lot of patching since many walls were taken down and the same material was carried into the kitchen. The boards are on the thin side, and are not tongue and groove, instead they are installed the old fashioned way, hammered in. After doing some tests on the existing wood we found this was a type of pine which is rare these days, but found similar material in a near by building which was being demolished and had a carpenter cut the boards to size. The board have so much veining and lines it would be comparable to ash planks. The stain is a custom blend. When staining floors we always ask the CG to make a number of tests for us and provide them with formula mixes such as: one coat of 50% walnut and 50% ebony, and then a second coat of 100% ebony, or combinations of 80%-20% depending on how dark we want to get. I believe this was a 20% walnut and 80% ebony mix because we wanted to go dark and there were a lot of imperfections on these old floors which we wanted to hide.

I hope this helps answer your question.
Best,
Chango & Co.
