Q: We have probably 25 different species of woods from osage, mahogany, cherry, white and red oak, birch, honey locust, ironwood.. To find a wood filler to match all these, yikes. That’s why I don’t think it would look good. Is there some product that we can “pour” into the gaps, cracks and knot holes to fill all these in?
I’ve heard to leave the sawdust in the cracks and crevices, but won’t that come out during the first coat of sealer? We’re not using a stain either, don’t want to cover up any of the colors.
A: You might want to look up a company called Timbermate. They make some very serious claims about their wide range of wood fillers, and though they are more expensive, I am considering giving them a good look.
We recently had engineered wood floors installed and one of our wood-painted chairs has scuffed the floor with the paint from the chair (white paint on oak wood), do you know of a product we can use to remove this?
I have a small dog that has left scratches on my hardwood floors in my foyer. I have butterscotch coloured hardwoods, but some of these scratches have left visible marks I suppose where the colouring has been stripped (the scratches are lighter than the floor as a whole). How would…
Can I use the sawdust from sanding to make my own wood putty for nail holes? Making a perfect color match?
Do you have any tips for removing scuff marks? They seem to be only on the surface of the floor, i.e. not into the wood itself.
Shoe scuff marks on wood floor
We just installed a very expensive hardwood floor (alomediam Brazilian wood-dark wood) and after two coats of varnish, I can see shoe scarf marks. What is the strongest varnish or finish that can used of this type of wood so as to prevent any scratch marks?
