Frequently Asked Questions

    Is it ok to use this in a Fireplace for burning: Brazilian cherry (unfinished real hardwood flooring)?

    • ANSWER:
      You can burn it but WHY? Sell it on Craigslist. I guarantee someone will want it.

    I have an unfinished solid wood front door, should I paint or stain?
    I have hard wood floors in a brazilian cherry color. My trim is solid oak with a red mahogany stain. The door is beautiful. I want to make sure I can keep it that way.

    • ANSWER:
      DON’T!!!!! Stain it yet.

      First I would shellac it. Shellac dries pretty fast. You should be able to put three coats on in one day. You can put a second coat on without sanding. After the second coat you should sand and wipe the dust with a tack cloth which can be purchased a home center for less than a dollar. If you don’t like the finish after a couple of years the shellac will be much easier to remove than stain and poly or whatever you use to seal it.

      Good Luck

    Should I buy hardwood flooring from someone on craigslist?
    My husband and I found Brazilian Cherry hardwood floors for sale on craigslist…the sellers are selling it unfinished .50 per sq. ft. I asked the seller why they are able to sell it so cheap and they said they bought it at an auction… It is still in the pallets and they have 2,000 sq. ft. to sell..we only need about 900… I asked if they can assure us that the wood is in good, usable condition and they said yes… These people are contractors… What do you think????
