I have some nice (and expensive) Carlisle wide pine flooring that has been laying around for ~10 years. There are light stripes where the wood was hidden from the light—sticking, edges, ends.
I’d love to leave it unsanded, and just put Waterlox on it and expect that with time the marks will disappear (i.e., become darker due to light exposure) and thus ‘fade’.
What do people think? I tried doing a bit of ‘feathering’ with a cabinet scraper but it is too deep for that, so either I lose a mm from the top of the whole floor and lose the nice planed finish, or I take my chances that it will become more uniform with time.
Hope someone is reading this afternoon—hoped to put down Waterlox this evening!
