Hi all!

True to my historical experience, I never have a floor installed without some sort of drama. Here is the latest. Objective is finished osb. This the floor was perfectly flattened, OSB was stapled down to plywood with a 2mm floor muffler later in between. Joints filled. Sanded, and the guys swear it was sanded evenly, and the is the result after 1 layer of glitsa.

Anyone ever do finished osb that can offer some advice? I'm thinking when they filled the joints the sanding over the joints changed the structure of the board around the edges. Your advice and where to go from here is appreciated.

But first... How do I post an image?

The wood patch at the edges of the sheets required at least a sanding with fine paper to remove residue. This apparently polished off some of the patina from the manufacturing process, making the sheet edges more pronounced. To make this pattern less noticeable each sheet could be cut into squares and laid on a diagonal, or stained with a light brown stain after sanding. To make the "cheap" floor look more "custom" I have added a two inch strip around each square and at the perimeter of the room. The color may come back some after it gets a patina from light affecting the surface, but there is color on the surface from the manufacturing process.

Shoulda seen that coming and sanded the entire thing, then stain it.
