Waterbourne over reclaimed material3/4
I may be over thinking this here but many many years ago I had seen a novice floor finisher foul a floor scuffing with steel wool when using waterbourne.
Were making a large table from customer supplied reclaim. It of course had a lot of nails and fasteners that have been pulled. The flooring guy popped into my head as we shoot WB.
Anyone have any input on potential issues with any residue/rust/etc that may be remaining in the holes? Or perhaps even the staining around the holes where the fasteners were?
Would be a majorly costly miss but would like to stick with WB if at all possible.
I like using waterbased poly on reclaimed tables we build, mostly for our personal home, our office and for friends. We are most often using old heart pine, which is somewhat dark, but I never have had issues. In my opinion the nails holes, saw marks and bits of bark on the edges all create a bit of roughness to the appearance anyway, so even if the poly had some reaction to the wool, I don't see that as a bad thing. Of course we make sure all nails are removed prior to planning, but I imagine bits of steel wool remain. Never saw any rust discoloring.
