Huaco, the way I see it, all those pieces of flooring they have out for display aren't going to be sold anyway since they are already out of the box. So I figured the worst they could do was say no.
Pinback, no there isn't any finish on it, that is the natural color of the wood. I am thinking about finishing it with some pure tung oil, but it's probably one of those things I will get around to later.
