I think Jo's stuff is amazing. I am also enamored with that walnut wall paneling. What do you call it when its installed like flooring on the wall? Paneling? or Wood walling?

Great post. As a wood flooring manufacturer I've had my experience with dents and dings in wood floors. You are correct this technique will work. On older floors that may have wax on them you do run the risk of making a white halo in the finish so good tip on trying it in an inconspicuous place first. Also when trying to sand out any grit and refinish be careful when attempting this over large areas or in very visible areas because of the risk of contaminating finishes. Don't every use Endust or Pledge or any other wax furniture polishes on wood floors as it could cause problems if you ever refinish the floor in the future.

How to procure reclaimed wood tip: Most major metroplexes have one or more hardwood flooring distributors. Typically, local hardwood flooring contractors who purchase flooring from these distributors also use their waste bins to throw out old wood flooring that they have torn out of homes that they are remodeling. If you ask nicely, they'll probably let you pick it out of the bin. Wood flooring works great as the tongue and groove help to hold the wall feature together.
