Oak floor repair prior to refinishing.

I have a 100 year old house with oak wood flooring. I would like to restore the area where the steam radiator was that was removed that caused the first repair I wish to restore. The floor had a border that was layed into the floor. I am not sure how this was done. Was it a pre-stain piece of flooring or was it a white oak piece layed into the red oak flooring that aquires a different color from the same stain? If you have experience or knowledge with this I would appreciate the information. I have a photo of the floor.

It sounds like the stain variation could be from a poor stain job. Hard to tell without photos, but if one stain is different from another and it was appeared after you moved radiator - someone might have just not stained under the radiator. I guess we'll see when you upload that picture!

You gotta upload them to a server such as photobucket.com. Look at and read the directions I gave you in post #2.
