Good floor but still color variance and too many short piece

    Comments about R.L. Colston 3/4" x 2 1/4" Maple:

    I definitely wanted a uniform color and thought 'select' was the way to go but I don't consider it uniform at all. We had to be very careful and conscious during the installation to make it look random by try to put like colored boards together and not having super light right in the middle of super light... Also hugely disproportionate number of short pieces and by short, probably more than half the boards were under 24" so you have color issues and then having to piece together a bunch of little pieces... It turned outgood but glad I installed it myself as a flooring company would have just thrown it down and called it all 'random' and say that's how it should look... We spent a lot of time and in the end looks good but just not the bowling alley look/consistency was going for. When I say I wouldn't recommend this, I just wouldn't recommend it if their goal was the same as mine. It is a nice durable floor and if you like the random/varied colors, it's perfect.

            Comments about R.L. Colston 3/4" x 2 1/4" Maple:

            This hardwood floor was a joy to install. The boards locked into place. The milling standards were consistent, the boards were straight and true. I did not encounter any boards with blemishes. I would use this product again. My only concern is the stack of short lengths I have left over. When I calculate the shorts as a percentage of the overall project it is about 4%. I was careful to use shorts under Kitchen cabinets...so the percentage might be higher in a dinning or living room.

Very clean, straight, and easy to install. I wouldn't hesitate to buy from this manufacturer in the future.

                              Great product. I installed the same wood in a living room and dinning room about 8 years ago and it still looks like new. We decide to replace carpet in a couple of the bedrooms and this floor is what we are putting in there as well. I really like the wider planks, makes installation easier (less nailing).

                                We were adding unfinished maple to existing maple previously installed. This wood is so clear and beautiful, I wish it was throughout our entire house. The wood was milled very straight and true, no warps and defects.

                                    R.L. Colston-3/4" x 2-1/4" Maple Unfinished Square Edge Solid Hardwood Flooring- is unfinished.
                                    Unfinished means that the wood flooring has not been run through a finishing line and has not been sanded, stained, or finished with a top coat (urethane). It will need to be finished on site after it is installed.
                                    This product is sold by the sq. ft unit as it is sourced from different mills in bundles that can vary depending on supplier (usually around 19 sq ft each).

                                    You will need a high speed router and a half-round or quarter round cutting bit.

                                    Yes wood will shrink if it dries out (usually from the heat).

                                  are all of the pieces in this product 2-1/4" ? The description implies that there are various widths between 2-1/4 and 5".

                                    That is a misleading description, I do apologize. What that means is that we carry all those sizes not that you will receive a variation in your order

                                  Can this wood be stained effectively? I have maple in other rooms of a newly purchased home, but I do not want to put more down if it can't be stained nicely.

                                    Unfinished means that the wood flooring has not been run through a finishing line and has not been sanded, stained, or finished with a top coat (urethane).
                                    It will need to be finished on site after it is installed.

                                  What is the thickness of the tongue? I am trying to find flooring that will match my 92 year old maple flooring. My flooring is 3/4" thick, 2 1/4" wide, 2 1/2" including the tongue, and the tongue is 5/16" thick and rounded (not square).

                                    Most tongues on a 3/4" solid wood floor will be about 1/4" to 5/16" wide and thick. When tring to match an existing maple you want to check the grade of the floor and the color. Is it more uniform or you have allot of variations in color? If you had to you could use a router to make the first row of the new flooring fit with your old flooring and then continue with the new flooring throughout the rest of the area. You could also order one bundle to test if it will work with the flooring you already have.
