Question

I am currently restoring a late Victorian,ground floor flat. At present, I am trying to prepare the floor boards, in order to seal them. The problem that i am faced with is that before sanding them, I have to try and fill in the gaps in the tongue and groove flooring before sanding and sealing. I have heard that you can mix sanding dust with glue in order to give amatching finish. Has anyone any ideas?

Depending on the type of wood, it is usually NOT advosable to fill the seams in a floor, the floorboards have "shrunk" from age, and loss of moisture, wood is in constant motion and filling the seams will result in the filler "popping out" in a short time, your best bet, short of pulling and reinstalling, is to refinish the way they are.
