    Hey all;

    Not sure if this is the right group for this question, but here goes:

    A friend of mine is putting pine flooring in an older (ca. 1800s) home. She
    has had the floor made for her, so it's new. She was wondering what kind of
    finish to put on it, and had heard about using linseed oil and wax. I
    recommended varathane, or a similar product, but she seems kind of set on
    this linseed oil thing.

    Has anyone ever used this on a floor? How did it work out? Can anyone
    suggest any reason why one might want to use linseed oil and wax?

    ken moersch said you can use any of the products , its personal preference
    varatahne from flecto is underrated , its good because it sticks to the
    most comtaminated surfaces

    linseed oil and wax will darken alot over time , show scuff marks and
    require regular maintenance, and water spot. New water base will not
    yellow and will hold up a long time. Oil poly will yellow.
