I’m restoring a turn of 1900’s living room here in Providence, plaster repairs, painting, some window replacemnents hardwood trim restoration. I subbed the floors to a young neighbor who is just starting out in the floor business and he’s been stumped by a problem we’ve run into with the oak floors. When we pulled the carpeting up we discovered a stain which we’ve come to a agreenent about is probably spilled wax on the T&G oak floor. After sanding some surface contaminent came out the majority of the stain remains. My solution is to cut it out and rplace it; It’s about a 12″ x 16″ amoeba shaped blotch, but I hate to do that to this old floor. PS please don’t tell me to buy another rug.
