Hi, Ken. You might check the responses to Wide Pine Floors posted by Debby on 1/16/00. It gives a lot of hints and info. You can also search the board by hitting "control F", typing in a word like "floors" and clicking to see all the threads with this word in the title. There was a long article on finishing/refinishing floors in The Family Handyman magazine a few months back. There is even more good info in there.
