Products are cut according to the size indicated above, but are shipped raw to maintain affordable pricing for our customers. This also allows our customers to finish the product exactly as desired. Products may contain markings from the mill or slight amounts of glue from the manufacturing process, but can be easily removed prior to finishing.
We try very hard to eliminate any glue remnants. However, should you find any glue remnants on your Nordic product, it can be easily addressed during preparation, prior to finishing the product. To easily peel off the glue remnants, simply soak a small rag in acetone and place over the glue for about 10 mins.
It is important to always sand the product before finishing with paint, stain or clear coating. Start with 150 grit and gently sand the product a couple times. A final sanding can be done using 220 grit, but it is not recommended to go beyond 220 (the wood pores will close making it harder for stain to permeate). And finally, keep in mind that this is a natural product and will not always be perfectly uniform.
