Re: Sanding/refinishing oak floor a DIY job? I did my parents floor while in my teens using a drum sander.
I've always been handy with wood though.
It went surprisingly smooth.
The Varathane we used was miles better than whatever was put on the floors when the house was built. It still looks good 20+ years and a Golden Retriever later.
