Listed below are links to weblogs that reference 5-finger mosaic small packs:


Frank Power (Redhill, Surrey)

I have a 5 finger mosaic parquet floor - 21 sq m - looks like teak - various in the business have looked at it and no-one is 100% sure. Over the last 20 years it has been covered with carpet, which has now come to the end of its life. We would like to renovate the floor and have a company ready to start work when we can source 0.6 sq m of matching tiling for an area which is now part of the room due to a wall move. I looked at your small packs of teak under your restoring and adding to floor section but one big snag is size. What was sold in the 60s and 70s had 3 inch fingers. Your sizes in common with all the new 5 finger mosaic I have seen is 12 cm. This is a significant difference of 7.5 mm per tile making it not much use for renovation work. Am I right?

Hi Frank

If I understand correctly, your 5-finger mosaic measures 7.62cm x 5 = 38.10 by 38.10cm in a tile of 4 by 4 blocks of 5-fingers?

Is there a possibility you lift fingers in an unobtrusive part of the floor to fill in the 0.6 sq m which I guess is in full view and use the different size new fingers as a kind of border around the floor?

Hope this helps?
