French bleeding 30 Jun 2020 18:20 #20907

Hi all, I have a mahogany hardwood floor refinish on the books for this month. The homeowner really likes the French bleed that was added during manufacturing of the floor and doesn't want to loose the bevel or characteristic of the FB look. I plan on doing the refinish and then having my mentor who is a master peg and groover come in and re-groove the floor.
My question is - Does anybody have some helpful tips or a technique they use to add the color back to the groove without making a mess before my final sand with my Bona direct drive?

here is the wood to be refinished. Looks more like a ceiling but I assure you it's the floor :P

Hi there, you won't be sanding the grooves out, so there won't be any need to add any colour back in. Usually heavy bevels go much darker as your stain spills over the edges.
