Oil stain in hardwood floor
I am refinishing some old 3/4 X 3-1/2 hardwood floor.
Some of the flooring has what appears to be oil that sat on the wood and penetrated deeply into the wood. I have stripped them and done some sanding on them, but, the oil soaked wood runs deep. That part of the wood seems softer.
I am not concerned about discoloration to much. this flooring is over 100 years old and I am leaving the "character" in the flooring.
I just want to make sure that my finish will adhere to this.
Was thinking about pouring some mineral spirits on the areas. Thoughts?
Alcohol maybe. Thoughts?
I have been using a tung oil from Waterlox for refinishing the floors in my house.
Any input/advice would be greatly appreciated.
