I know this isn’t a woodworking project but it kind of is. I bought an old victorian in Ohio and it has amazing hardwood floors, but they are in horrible shape. I don’t know if they are the originals from 1860 or not. I only saw the house in person for about 30 minutes. Anyone ever deal with something like this? If this post doesn’t meet the standards I will remove it. However, any input would be greatly appreciated!
I guess what I’m asking is there a point when you can’t sand and fill the gaps? The gaps are pretty large in areas. The middle picture is from a bedroom that looks like they stained. I’ve refinished hardwood floors before but nothing that was in this bad of shape. On the other hand, I never saw an inlay like this from such an old house. that’s what makes me think they are not original.
Next question: If they can be saved, anyone have a drum sander, an edger, and some really comfortable knee pads? hahaha
