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?
