How to deal with the issue of prefinished floors and curved stair nosing

National HardwoodNews, Projects

A client came into the store asking what she could do about getting a radius nosing for her prefinished floor. Her installer told her that prefinished floors don’t have prefinished nosings, but that one could be created out of smaller pieces of wood nosing. However, this would create wood grains that flowed in different directions. That wasn’t acceptable. We told our client that we could mill a custom radius nosing from a single piece of wood. In this way all the grain would flow in the same direction. The end affect worked perfectly and the client couldn’t have been happier.
