Experience With Tung Oil for Wood Floors?

Good Question

Pin it button big

Q: I have 50- year-old oak floors that need to be refinished. I've done some research and am very interested in using old-fashioned (and green!) tung oil rather than the lacquers that are the current norm. Does anyone have experience with using tung oil on floors? What was your experience with the refinishing and maintenance process? It all sounds too good to be true with easy repair of scratches and marks, water resistance and durability.
