How do you prevent chalky finish on pine floor knots?
Planning to start installing a new knotty pine floor, wide planks - 748 sq ft of it.....I plan to use a stain and shellac all in one product. The stain color will be an antique walnut.Recently my brother did the same thing however, I notice now that the knots have taken on a chalky finish which is very noticeable, especially when looking at it from a distance. How do I aviod that? And since I have such a large area to do should I stain the entire area all at once or work in sections? I am afraid of getting an uneven tone. Thanks
