it is necessary to have such bottle for small projects
DID NOT have any complaint with Woodys. Courteous and fast shipping. However, to rate the product itself; Called the 800 number after the first coat to ask why I didn’t see a difference. They said to give it three coats and not to worry bc it is their best selling product and it will take the red and yellow out of the red oak. I called them after the third coat to tell them I saw no change at all. It felt like they were asking me questions to find a flaw in the application. I told them we had approx 2000 sq ft. to stain. Turns out it’s almost 1600. My floor guy used 9 gallons of Nordicseal over three coats. They look the same as they did when they were sanded. I’m going with it was a waste and learn from my mistake please. This stuff is too expensive to trial with.
I was so excited about this project and 50% of the wood was unusable.
The vendors description is fairly accurate. I purchased 450+ sq ft for a shop floor. Most of the board were 1-2 feet. I think there was one long board in each bundle. If you are going to use this wood you need to plan, you can't just open a bundle and start nailing. The first thing you need to do is sort all the boards by size and sub sort by flaws. Then you need to pick the right boards for the right spot so that the damage isn't a problem, like a bad grove goes against the wall and big knots will end up under something. You will have to sand to get rid of the marks left by the inspectors but I then used the sawdust like grout between cracks. With all the short boards you can pick the right length to end a row and may not even have to cut. Some of the flaws were odd grain patterns which I actually thought looked to nice for a floor but I made sure they ended up in a spot to be seen. If you want a floor where you can slide across it in socks this isn't the product for you. In the end I am happy with the product but you should plan on spending at least twice the amount of time to lay the floor than it would take with perfect wood.
Twice as many short pieces. Some only 8 inches long. Going to make it a tough lay!
