What type of floor is this? How could I refinish it?


This floor is from 1908. Hardwood. It's not oak, but I'm not sure what it is. Were in Los Angeles.

Here are some pics.

Any suggestions on how to refinish/ and or stain.

As much floor as you have to refinish, I would let a pro do it. It is awfully easy to mess up way more than you can straighten up with refinishing a floor. You will find out fast how much sand paper it will take to do the job. I am not trying to be negative, but there have been many people who didn't have the experience find out the hard way after it was too late. JMHO

It is really easy to ruin a potentially beautiful floor like that with a sander. Hire a pro.
