Topic tags/keywords: tip

I have reclaimed a oak veneer hardwood floor, and I am an amateur woodworker. I am seeking any advice from installation, the correct mitre saw blade and how to properly refinish it. I have already ripped it and grooved all four edges of the hardwood as I have adopted the loose tongue method of jointing. The floor is a floating floor. Right now it has a golden finish to it but i would like to strip it and place a darker finish. How and can i do this??? Any advice would be great thanks

Hi
Sand and sand and sand to get the old finish off, might be worth it to find a power sander and feed it through to make it even, Minwax makes a great floor finish.

I have found the easiest way to strip the finish off is running it through a drum sander. results in a nice even, clean surface.

Have your say...
