What type of finish do you recommend?

Q: I am going to try your advice and sand and finish a few of my 6″ pine floor boards (the whole board) in a few areas where the finish has worn through and then buff and recoat the rest of the floor. When you suggest applying a thin layer of finish and removing the tape quickly, what type of finish do you recommend?

Is this an oil-based polyurethane? A sealer? I love the look of 98% of the floor, and don’t want to lose the reclaimed/distressed character by refinishing the entire surface. I just want to get rid of a few grey spots and maintain the finish so we can enjoy it for years to come.

A: I completed the remaining years of my career (circa 2013) using Poloplaz Primero.  It’s a great finish that is easy to work with.
