I installed 4" wide 3/4 solid red oak from Woodwudy. I mixed #1 and #2. I used the bona wood filer, one coat of Bona amber seal and two coats Bona Mega One finish. In the past I used oil based polyurethanes. Bona finish is so much easier to apply, it doesn't stink, I haven't use the respirator, it dries so quick that there is little chance for any dust to set in it. It is hard, I had a hard time to scuff it between the coats and had to use sandpaper instead the scuff pad. I was covering 800 sg/ft. with 2 gal of sealer and 3 gallons of Bona Mega One. The covering is very close to 550 sq/ft per gallon. The cost of finish was about $1.80 per sq.ft, without the sending. I am putting 4 stars, because this product is expensive, but if I would have to decide to do it again I would use Bona Mega One. The ease of application, the absence of lingering smell comparing to oil based poly is excusable for the extra cost. I can not asses the durability yet.
Easy to trowel on and easy to sand off with the floor sander.
Great floor product
Purchased the Xulon Monticello Cocoa for my kitchen and it looks amazing! It was easy to install and is the perfect addition! The price was low and affordable! Can't wait to purchase more flooring for our next few projects! Thanks Woodwudy!!

I ordered 1200sqft of common#3 white oak when I called to order they didn’t tell me it wasn’t in stock and I was going to have to wait so I called and they had common #3 red oak so they sent that when I received the product it had damage from a fork lift
Never received product. Gave 2 stars bc of how fast I was reimbursed.
I got #3 grade oak flooring. Although it was more rustic than I expected, there were a lot of very small pieces and a lot of sorting was needed to get the floor laid in. Did require more sanding and some filling to get it nice and smooth and safe to walk on. I think the cheap price is worth the extra work as my finished product is beautiful. I like the wilder grains and knots that add character. Shipping was fast but packaging was terrible
Everything worked great until the sticky surface on the cut-in pad dissolved due to the liquid poly. From that point on the pad was basically useless. Happened about 300 feet into the job.

I ordered this for a different floor than what I ordered from here. They took it upon themselves to send a ‘universal’ piece that will not work for my floor, again, not to transition to the flooring ordered here. Instead of contacting me and letting me know that they were going to send a universal piece instead of the piece that I ordered would have prevented this issue.
Now I’m fighting with them about replacing it with the correct one that I ordered.
Do not do business with this company
They could care less that you spent over three grand with them
After I sent in my order I realized I needed other supplies. I called after hours and was able to talk to an employee who added my other parts of the order to help me avoid additional shipping charges. He walked to the shipping folks and left a note to add my other items.
The price was right and the service was very good. Despite my inability to submit a complete order the first time.
We are very pleased with price, quality, and the personalized service. Follow up was great. The product was delivered to our house meeting our expectations. The buying process was easy.
Fast and great looking wood.
Loved this product. Went on just as shown in product video. I bought the t bar applicator which I think is a must, made application a breeze. Topped with 2 coats of clear water based poly and it's smooth as glass. First time finishing my pine plank floors myself and I couldn't be happier.
Out of the three one was fairly straight, another had a slight bend and the third was bowed and twisted
Tacks a bit fast. A little difficult to work with on a patch job. For me anyway. A learning curve for sure. Probably better on a new floor with t-bar, but don’t dally or cross-track. Lot’s of eyesores from original application from both (not me).
Then there is the bigger issue. The product was sold to an owner who emphasized she did not want to end up with a yellow floor in a couple years. She didn’t have to wait that long. Four months old and yellow as the rating stars above. Mega-One sealer. Very lightly used floor and only recommended Bona cleaning pads used to date. She is not happy.
Glad I didn’t sell it and hoping patch matches by Thanksgiving.
Otherwise OK I guess.
we are getting ready to use the kit and the cut in pad is complete but the T-Bar had no pad
For those installing hardwood floors and want a professional looking job please do not skimp out on using the best tools. The bona gun and glue worked perfectly and provided a easy no fuss installation. Also, ordering from Woodwudy was easy and provided a fast clear delivery system. THANKS WOODWUDY!
Never received product. Only have it a 2 bc of how quick they refunded me.
I chose to get my flooring from you all (Armstrong Luxe Fastak) because the great price, and great customer service I received when I spoke to someone on the phone and had 2 important questions before I bought the flooring.
1. Does it come with the full manufacturers warranty?
2. Do I need an underlayment
I was explained both in depth, yes on the warranty, no on the underlayment.
Great, you were $1.25 cheaper than local prices, so even having to pay the shipping cost it was much cheaper than I could have purchased it local. The flooring took longer than expected and I had to move my instillation date. Fine
My flooring guy said, you can’t lay this on this subfloor. 😳
Now to be fair the packaging says ‘most subfloors’ which is misleading. And the information in the box was a little more vague. It never clearly stated that you needed a completely smooth surface like Luan. I spoke with Dalton many times, and I feel like there were times he really wanted to help me and other times he really didn’t give a shit. I also ordered a threshold piece called a reduced. Because I have a tiled floor it needs to butt up against that is higher than the flooring we are putting down.
I purchased on you website, as it was right under the flooring option for you to choose the threshold that you need for this flooring.
I was delivered a universal T molding. It is higher in the center and will not work as a transition piece. Dalton & I went back & forth about how that’s the only transition piece they have for this floor. And I said that was one of the options I was given on YOUR website. I paid $65 for it and only need the width of a doorway, but now I’m stuck with it as well as
A. Having to purchase as well as pay for instillation of Luan that I was not expecting
B. Having to wait for 3.5 weeks to have my floor installed, with 1/2 my belongings sitting in PODS on my driveway that I have to pay for, for another month
3. No transition piece.
If I were given the correct info I would have chosen the Rigid Core, that can go directly over my existing subfloor. I heard immediately from the owner (I assume) when I spent the $3200 to purchase his flooring, via email to thank me for my purchase but even after asking repeatedly for him to call me, I have been met with silence. Which to me translates to him not giving a rats ass about my problems!
I was told I would have to pay a restocking fee of 30% to Armstrong. Woodwuddy has taken ZERO responsibility of any of this.
Misinformation left and right with this company. I was so excited to have found such a phenomenal deal online, but I highly suggest, spending the extra money and buy local. This has been a nightmare for us!
*kinda strange that a company like this that obviously does great volume to offer such pricing has ONE review on its website, and it’s a good review 🥴
