There was a learning curve with the application. I basically ended up sanding the first application of Amber Seal off. I left puddles and pools and it ended up looking blotchy. As long as you even it out and don't leave any pools it will come out looking good.
The Amber Seal has a very warm look and feel. I bought two gallons of the Amber Seal and three gallons of the Bona Mega. The total was less than $300. I finished around six hundred square feet and I have leftover of both products.
Renting a buffer and screening after the Amber Seal really is necessary.
Finish your floors last! This remodel would have destroyed the finish on these floors. I'm glad I waited until nearly the end to do it.

Time to sand the nasty floor.
It took me all day Friday to patch up this area.
The final result of the patchwork. Next, more sanding.
The several gaps in the foreground I didn't worry about since there will be an island where they are.
Discovered later on that the original flooring was white oak not red oak. Doh!
