thanks. have any tips on sanding and finishing or is about like anything else.Donedat said:Yep. Going to show some samples of it tomorrow. Nice stuff. It is real wood and they really do call it Tiger Wood because it is dark orange with black stripes. Pretty hard stuff. Makes a nice floor and is a good alternative to the normal domestic hardwoods.
I can send you a plank. Maybe a pic might due. I think it is some kind of exotic mesquite or something of that nature.Teetorbilt said:Sorry adams, I've been in the exotic wood business for a long time, took it over from my father in '73. I'd like to see a plank just to determine what it really is. I have many toys here plus DNA take out.
I noticed that many of the boards were put down upside down, any reason for that?
Donedat said:I might add that with any exotic wood, good dust masks and even goggles are important. The oils from the exotic woods can cause resperatory sensitivity for some people.
I helped a friend install some in his kitchen and dining room. It really looks good. It was pre-finished so we didn't have to go there.adams said:anyone ever messed with this species. Not sure yet what the real name is but if you guys know something about this let me know, Thanks. And if not Ill let yall know as this deal progresses.
Yeah, most of those imports are dry. Have to be careful nailing it down. Nails have to be spaced a little farther apart than normal...like 12 inches instead of 8 or 10.adams said:well we started sanding but we pulled off because the A/C isn't on yet and the rep said minimum of one week after the air is on before the floor can be done. It is really nice, sands down easy so I think everything will go smooth. Its not very oily like Austraillion Cypress, it seems to be pretty dry.
