Antique Wood Floor

Posted by Bill Campsey on September 7th, 1999 09:00 PM

Hi, My wife and I live in a barn refurbished as a house
We decided to redo the kitchen. When we lifted the carpet
and the subflooring, we found a 100 year old pine floor
(tongue and groove). We sanded it, and cleaned between
the cracks.

And the cracks are the problem. The floor is now beautiful,
but there are 1/8" cracks between each of the boards. I
believe this crack was a deliberate design in those days. If this room
were anything but the kitchen, I'd leave the cracks and
clean them regularly. But in the kitchen, I'm worried
about keeping them clean enough.

Does anyone have any ideas on how to fill the cracks,
leave the beauty (with all its imperfections), and
have the fix survive for a while?

Thanks in advance.
