Pine T&G Flooring


I have an old cabin in the catskills that has 6 inch T&G Pine Floors. Everyone is telling me to piece in the missing floor area. Thats fine, where do I find the product? All the pine I see out there is beaded with beveled edges. Any suggestions on where to find it?

I have another room that has beautiful 16 inch planking which is faced nailed. I want to restore it which means sanding, which means countersinkining every nail, is there an easier way?

Pine T&G Flooring


If you contact me at my website I can probably find you the pine to match your floor.

As far as refinishing your beautiful 16" planks, if you truly want to sand/refinish them, you would have to sink each nail head or they will tear up the sanding belts. I am about to refinish a wide plank floor in my 200 year old home, and I plan to use a soy based ctripper from Franmar Chemical to strip the floor, and then I'll lightly sand it. I want to keep alot of th nicks/dents as that's the beauty of the old floor!

Pine T&G Flooring


I love the look of an old pine floor especially with face nails. unless it is really REALLY beat up, i would leave it alone and mabye try a coat of Waterlox (tung oil) over it to clean it up a little. I'd try it in an inconspicuous spot to make sure it is compatible with the finish that is there now, but my guess is it would be fine and a few coats of the Waterlox would fill and smooth a lot of the dings in the floor.
Sanding it would remove the patina that has built up over time and take years to come back.
My 2 cents which is probably more that what it is worth.

I am getting ready to install the same type of floor in my cabin in NH. random width 10" to 16" eastern white pine with face nails. I am looking forward to the floor getting some "character" after it is installed.
