    I got some of the plugs in place and trimmed yesterday. Kind of took it easy after finishing one room.

    Some new pics of the job. The Bosch OMT did a great job undercutting the casings. I got really lucky; the pocket doors didn’t need any trimming at all. I cut a couple of hundred plugs just to be on the safe side. The PS32 did an amazing job running the taper drill and counterbore.

    @sprokitz I considered 2 plugs per board but thought it would be too busy looking. I think it would have been the right choice, though. Maybe next time.

    Thanks for the update. Your doing great job. Looks like the Bosch OMT is good tool to have for this project. I don’t mine the looks of the plugs. I agree 2 plugs would be to busy. How do you like the taper drill and counterbore bit Peter? Is this from Lee Valley?

    Thanks, Greg, yes the drill is LV. It’s part of a kit I got at a yard sale a month or so ago. I had never had one before but really like using it. Much better than the drill and countersink combinations that use standard twist drills.

    BE the change you want to see.

    I remember when you when you picked up that set at yard sale and I thought might have been LV. Nice to hear you like it and sure it will pay for itself after this flooring job.

    The installation is coming along nice. Really like the plugs give it a finished look.

    Second part of the job is finished now. Just giving the urethane 24 hours to fully dry before moving back into the room.

    Sanding and finish went really quickly; there were very few spots that needed more than a light sanding with 120 grit.

    Looks fantastic Peter, I like the contrast with the dark doors, and those doors are very nice by the way.

    Thanks, all, it was a very rewarding job. Now gotta go and rest, lol.



    @boschmanbrian
    , the level of trim is something I have always liked about older homes. I can just imagine the cost of finishing a house like that today.

    Looks really nice . What’s the urethane brand you are using on that white oak floor boards .

    Always willing to learn .

    I used 4 coats of Benjamin Moore “Stays Clear” satin. It doesn’t give the honey colour I am accustomed to in a floor finish but it highlights the grain very nicely.

    This is my first experience with water based products so I have my fingers crossed. It sure was easy to apply and a 2 hour dry time between coats was really nice.

    Wow four coats. Nice it had a 2 hour dry time that it made it easier than waiting a day between coats.

    Yeah water base can be a bit tricky on wear . What is the warranty on stays clear from Benjamin Moore just wondering .

    Always willing to learn .

    Definitely more easily to work with, and definitely not as hard for trying to get rid of the smell.
    Just not as durable, but with four coats, should be good for some time. I did use the water on oak stairs at my prior home, easy to work with, and less of an odour , but have done a few floors with the original urethane, and never had any recalls.
    That being said, they have really improved the quality of the water based, and coming from B M I’m sure it must be a good product.

    You’re right, Brian, time will tell. I turn 75 next week so I doubt I will be the one to do the refinish LOL.
