Bona Steel Trowel
Wood handle, 10.5" stainless steel trowel for filler. Perfect combination of rigidity and flexibility to smoothly apply filler for spot or full trowel filling.
The package arrived after just 4-5 days. However, I was surprised to find that it is difficult to find a 12-inch roller with small metal pieces to insert into each of the ends of the roller cover. Standard large size rollers were all I found. The rollers with the small metal pieces only fit roller covers of greater than 12 inches.
I love how these floor turned out for the price but they were a lot of work. To give you an idea of my process. I sorted boards for any major flaws, nailed down, applied a wood putty (Woodwise Powdered Wood Filler) to the entire floor to fill in gaps, Sanded, Stained (Duraseal Quickseal Chestnut), and Sealed (Satin Bona HD)
I purchased about 1800sq ft of flooring. It arrived in unboxed strapped groups that were not even on a pallet. There was some damage due to shipping but not too bad. In the end, I used about 85-90% of all the boards. I only scrapped boards where the tongue or groove side was damaged (board was under 4" width in some places.). Things like knot holes I just filled with the putty.
I would highly recommend the putty that used. It is formulated to look like white oak and it takes stain really well.
It removed a bunch of red tone from our white oak
Out of curiosity I gave woodwudy a call about the #3 white oak for my cabin. Spoke to the salesperson (unfortunately forgot his name). I explained everything to him gave hime him the sq ft and ask him to check and make sure it was in stock. I was ordering the 31/4 and 5 inch. He called me back in a couple of hours and said no problem in stock. Called him back in a couple of days placed the order. Not a problem he was very professional through the whole process. The order shipped on time. The company sent me an email to let me know it shipped. And it came in a few days. I had it shipped to the local fed ex office. I ordered 400ft of 5 in and 400 ft of 31/4. Ist booboo. I was planning on staggering one and one. Only problem i should have ordered more 5 in than 31/4. To late. After a little of head banging I solved the issue by staggering the install with one 5in one 31/4 in one 5 in and 2 -31/4in. So in a 20 inch span it was only 1/4 in ch off. The floor came out better than planned. There are alot of shorts but there's enough longer pieces to off set the shorts. All in all the product was much better than I expected. Extemly satisfied with this whole project start to finish! Will definitely recommend!
