does anyone out there know what is the best way to finish rosewood
flooring, and preserve the natural pinky and blond tones without making
it too red. my mom has now got her flooring down and is desparate to
keep it the same color as it is unfinished oil seems to bring out the
red and so does clear varnish. is it possible? or should she experiment
with stains? any help would be very much appreciated. Thanx Tamarrah
Hi, best thing to do is experiment, especially if you have any off cuts
or spares. You can never tell what a particular stain or varnish is
going to look like and as you probably know, often don't look like they
do on the containers. You may want to try a clear satin which will not
reflect the light as much. Maybe have a go with a water based version
rather than an oil based. These usually don't last as long but are a
lot thinner and therefore less likely to change the colour.
