We have removed the new flooring, installed in 1950, from the floor of our home to expose the original hardwood floor that was built in 1834.
The original hardwood floor is made from many types of wood and the boards range in width from 3 inches to 9+ inches.
The problem we face is that while some of the tongue-n-groove placements are flush, many have gaps between 1/16th inch to 1/4th inch.
Does anyone have advice as to how to fill in these gaps?
This old home, our children are 4th generation of our family to live in this home, does have some small historical significance.
One of the Zane brothers, of the pioneering Zane family, used to stay at this home when it was an inn.
