Not sure if this white oak came from Sweden as mentioned in a previous post, but it is lovely all the same.  I snapped this during a visit to the project at the request of the contractor who wanted to make sure the installation was going well.   At some point I just took my shoes off and felt for unwanted ridges with my feet — no better way!   The water-based finish has since been applied and the final look is just as intended — no heavy yellow or orange tones, just a hint of green, gray and neutral browns.  The perfect ground for lovely, colorful furnishings and a lively household.
