Manitario: So yes it was unpolymerized Tung oil but it’s been over a year so curing isn’t the issue. The oil blend is an in-the-wood finish so is that wherein the problem lies? ( Ie. Total contamination of the wood surface and below surface with oil, resulting in bond failure??) Or am I talking out my **s?!

.. Then I tried to top coat it with Arm-R-seal urethane – was that yet another error? No using poly but a urethane instead?

So the question is what product will adhere to the floor now?... I can go over it again lightly with 120 grit or 80 grit to give it some tooth (the surface is now low sheen and flat but likely still with below grain oil contamination)

Loren: I can pick up a gallon zinsser dewaxed shellac and get that down on the surface if you think that will work. Then would something like varathane oil poly over top be the ticket??
