One of the flooring options I'm considering is a [very!] rustic engineered hickory. It's available unfinished [company is 'Virgina Vintage'], so I could do a 'refreshable' oil finish, and I'm hoping the combination of hard hickory wood, rustic surface, and oil finish would make it a livable floor for my dogs and me, and it is approved for use over radiant.
I'm wondering what it is about waterlox that makes it such a favorite-- how does it differ from tung oil?
Are there any similar products I should be considering?
Anyone out there with a rustic hickory, oil finish, and dogs?
Have to mention that the salesman freaked me out a little: this is a glue together, and he was saying a regular carpenter's glue has far too much water, could cause problems, have to use a special low moisture glue. Makes me wonder how the floor would hold up to things like an undiscovered pet accident...
