Looks good, but what are you really asking?

Scandinavian hardwood made in China? Sounds funny to my ear. Is it a natural wood product or a manufactured board?

It seems it is a product of B.C. Canada.

It took over a hour to drive to their place in Caledonia hills, but it was worth it. This is some class-a stuff. I think i got a deal $250@160 sq. ft. I imaging $8 a ft might not be unreasonable for people with million dollar homes. There is iso bar code but no indication of where it is made. Scandinavian maple from BC... okay...sure.

I'm finishing the loft sleeping area that is about 120 sp ft and shaped like a 'F' so lots of edges.
I think it is better finish the edges like this:


Better than quarter round and easier? What kind of stain would you recommend or leave it natural?
I plan to the wood on some of stair steps as well. I was going to use this?

Why not just go for pre-finished stair nosing.

Hi Neil, ya well the good stuff is like $60 @ 4ft, The guy put some cheap particle board treads on there before, it is already buckling. For what i can tell the nosing is nothing really special, half moon doweling glued and finished. Not worth it for me.

Does nosing really prevent tripping? Maybe it causes tripping too?

I think carpet or cork are better general solutions for bedroom stairs because they don't slip so much. If you get a nice wood stair case, then you'll need small carpet mats attached to each tread or risk breaking your neck, good grief!
