Refinishing pine floor
We're planning to refinish the original pine floorboards in our 1950s house. They're in a great condition so we're going to sand them down lightly with an orbital sander (we feel the floor sander will be too rough for the job) but I'm a bit stuck as to sealing them and filling in the gaps. We're looking for a natural finish (no staining) and from my research I'm leaning towards Osmo polyx oil and Bona gap master filler. I would really appreciate any thoughts or suggestions!
Ronseal natural pine is available at B&Q, it is best option I've tested so many times, please mind to apply it before sanding and use masking tape to prevent from going beyond the edges .Drum floor sander will be not too heavy for the job but only experienced floor sanderer can know how to use it on your floor, first go have to be done un ungle the fibers of wood then along the fibers of wood. Wish you success . Andrzej
