Oak Hardwood Floor Quick Fix?My entire house (except kitchens and baths) is graced with wood flooring in oak. The house was built in 1940. While it's great to see in theory, only one room has been refinished since all were carpeted in the 50's. So the continuous expanse of wood is interrupted by the dining room's lovely finish.
Sanding an Old Wood Floor?We recently pulled up a vinyl floor and underneath was plywood over rough old wide pine boards. We are wondering what is the best way to sand them to make them smooth and what is the best polyurethane for them?

Repairing Dings In the Varnish On a Hardwood Floor?We recently installed hardwood floors in our house and sadly have some pretty major dings and scratches on the varnish from a chair. We had a chair with metal feet with rubber ends on the feet. The metal broke through one of the rubber feet and scratched the floor. Does anyone know of a way to buff these out to make them less noticeable? We have rearranged our furniture in a way that puts them in a high traffic area, the rest of the floor looks fantastic.
Any ideas would be appreciated, Thanks.
