I’m not fond of doing finish work; however, for projects that go on the inside of the house they are almost required, if for no other reason than they’ll stand up to the wear and tear of family life for a long time. Reader Benao_t posted pictures of his finished dining room floor, and we must say it looks great.

The last pic we saw had the room in a state for sanded flux, so it was good to see it all finished out and polished. I don’t want to think about how many layers and the buff time that had to happen before he got the slick shine we see in the picture, but with some of the new finishing products on the market and electric floor buffers, this might have been easier than it looks.

Regardless of the toil factor of the gloss, we think it looks great and hope it provides decades of maintenance-free service. Well done, sir.

    I used min-wax red oak stain, then topped it with “Varathane Diamond Polyurethane Interior Water Based” available in Clear Gloss, Clear Semi-Gloss, and Clear Satin. (lowes) this is gloss. Its pricey but I like it.

    I have had good luck,wet sanding between multiple coats and and brushing it on.
