    I have had my parquet floor which was laid in approx 1920/30 restored. But unfortunatley it had some flood damage to it. So after it had been varnished a patch of floor is alot darker/black. I am looking to replace approx 20 blocks/batons, the sizes are 14 inches long (but can be longer) 2 ¾ inches wide and ¼ inch thick. Can anyone assist me in finding some of these or if there is another way to deal with this.

    Regards

    We can perhaps help, see our profile for website and email address. Need some more details, like wood-type, grade etc. If you don't mind, could you give exact measurements in decimal:
    e.g 6.2mm thick by 70mm wide by 355.6 mm long?

    Bespoke manufacturer is in The Netherlands (where we originate from also) and only works in mm's

    Thinnest our manufacturer does is 6.2 mm. Don't think 0.15mm would be that much of a problem?
    Other measurement no problem, can do.
