What do they finish gym floors with?
I am attempting to refinish a table that can't be less than a century old and has some serious gouges that no amount of sanding is going to eliminate. The extent of my finishing experience is spraying shellac onto little wood toys. I have seen some furnishings and gym floors have a thick glass like surface to them that must be a millimeter or more in thickness and perfectly fills the spaces between boards and gouges as if someone had melted glass onto the wood and then buffed it out to a semi-gloss. How is this done? I am not worried about the historical nature of the table, I am just trying to make it look nice and extremely durable (I intend to use this as the kitchen table/ work space). It is the legs in particular that I am looking to fill gaps etc.
