Spent the day picking up branches and cutting the yard. The state has a no burn order going on now. >:( I need to burn off a few piles of branches before any more rain.

I did install some more trim, no pictures. Had ordered more of the Waterlox that should be in tomorrow. Hoping to get all coats down by the weekend.

Got the Waterlox in yesterday afternoon. First thing this morning, I clean up the floor real good and passed a tack rag. Did started applying the waterlox.









I did split the room to make it easier. I like it and the wife loves it. ;D

it does look great !  Are you doing anything before each coat, or just wiping it on?

No sanding in between coats. ;D

Still a bit under the weather, but I still got a bunch done. I didn't want to put the forth coat down till I got three coats down in the kitchen area. Had another problem there. When sanding the fill coat, I wasn't able to get the area of the toe kick areas. First thing this morning, I attack those spots and all was good. Yes, even block sanding by hand was needed. :( Then I had to drop the island over it's area which I had marked and treated the area. DanG island I know weights more then 1 thousand pounds. :o

After passing a tack cloth and much vacuuming and then taping, I was ready to apply the first coat. ;D



 

In this picture if one looks close at the bases of the beams, one can see were I split the room. I did a flaring sand before hand. ;D Was the reason to leave the forth coat.





Overall, I am very happy with the product. For those that would use this produce, I would say that time to fully cure is way out there to as much as 6 months. :o But, that all depends on the weather.

Another thing, this product will darken the wood over time till it cures which for me will be a plus. ;D

Today I put down Minwax Floor varnish I mentioned earlier on the stairway and hand rails. Was dried hard, no tack, in 2 hours. But was a very good drying day and had box fan blowing that dry air. :)
Move'n on.

Just a small update. Been under the weather so I been resting a lot. Really been very tired. :(  Saw my doctors which all they did was make more appointments with other doctors. >:(  Just about had enough of that. Feeling a bit better, so I am going to try and get that 4th coat down today.

Do you have CO detectors in your living areas? I had a pretty bad scare with that one day and realized that was why I felt like I had no energy. I had a strong enough concentration of CO in my shop the map gas torch would not light.

I have since remedied that and all is well with me again.
