Tips for wood coating
Before staining absorbent timbers like Pine with Woodcraft Stain, wet timber with a damp rag to stop stain from 'grabbing' quickly, making the product more workable and giving a more even result.
Nailing And Puttying Floorboards
Before sanding, punch nails at least 3mm below the surface. Once the boards are sanded smooth, apply the first coat of clear, fill holes and cracks liberally with Wood Tone Putty and allow to dry. Remove the excess putty with the next fine sand and you're ready for coating!
Sanding Old Floors
If your floors are old and have layers of varnish on them which need removing, or have 'cupped' at the edges, making the floor uneven, use a heavy grit sandpaper on the sanding machine, working diagonally across the boards and timber grain. This will remove the majority of the old coating as well as even out the boards so subsequent sands give a perfect finish.
After the first coat, you can enhance the colour of the floor with WB wood stain or SB Interior Stain by adding up to 10% stain to the clear base, then applying coats until you achieve the desired shade. Finish with a clear top coat.
