Two Questions About Old House Wood Repair
Just moved into a 1916 home. The beautiful red oak living room floors were refinished perhaps 8 years ago. They still look great--except for a major dent in a visible place where a repairman dropped a hammer. It is in a place where it is not possible to cover it with a rug. Should I try a latex wood filler of epoxy? Any recommendations? The second question is about an original window sash. The sash is in good condition (and I will be working to rehab all the windows rather than replace them). But at one point in the house's history, the window must have been stuck and someone used a screwdriver to force it open. The bottom of the sash is all marked up with such screwdriver holes. Would a wood filler or epoxy also work for this? I would then be painting it white. Thanks.
