Bottom surface of the mosaic end grain block showing cut grooves for the adhesive to penetrate up into each block locking them together.The adhesive should be applied generously in both directions so that is covers the whole surface and fills in the cut grooves for maximum adhesion.
Mosaic End Grain flooring after gluing to a plywood subfloor with the mesh removed before sanding which will only need between 0.01mm to 0.02mm to create the perfect surface depending on how good the fitters are. You should always use a high grade marine tongue and groove plywood subfloor to glue these blocks to using an MS Polymer such as our SW 890 adhesive.
Once the blocks have been sanded they are then finished with a colour oil and a final top coat of Blanchon Solid'Oil. The image on the left is unfinished and the one on the right has the Blanchon Solid'Oil, which penetrates into the fibres and then the hard wax oils seals the top.
