In this video you will learn how to use a wooden float.
A Wooden Float is a tool with a smooth plane that is applied on freshly laid mortar and concrete during surface finishing.
To use a Wooden Float, hold the handle firmly with one hand and position the plain against the surface without any tilt such that it makes full contact. “Floating” involves applying pressure against the surface in order to compact the layers of mortar and eliminate air gaps.
Apply extra Mortar to fill up any dents on the surface.
Create sweeping motions, applying light pressure against the Mortar.
Repeat the process until you have removed all imperfections and are left with a smooth, flat surface.
You have now learned to use a Wooden Float.
