800 square feet of 2 1/4” clear maple was installed to match 500 square feet of existing maple. The existing maple was in bad shape after 15 years of use by a busy family of 5. The original finish was an oil based product that had significantly ambered over time into an unflattering yellow. The goal was to achieve a white look that is maple’s natural color, and to keep that white look over the next 15 years. To get the look I used an ultra clear sealer underneath a water based polyurethane.
