We are renovating our guest room. I completed sanding the floors last night and I’m ready to treat the wood. I’m planning on using a Woca Lye to remove the colour and then a extra white oil to give a pale finish with some grain still showing through.

I tapped the nails below the surface before sanding the boards and need to fill the holes. I was wondering what to use to fill them and when to fill them. I was thinking of using a white epoxy wood filler and filling and sanding it back before I apply the lye. I appreciate the nail holes will show, but don’t want the white colour to be too stark compared to the finished wood. Will the oil colour the filler at all to take the edge off the whiteness? I’d appreciate any advice from anyone who has already done this. Thanks!

Normally some sanding dust is mixed with glue or even varnish to make a filler
When I worked on stage we had beech dust and a powdered glue- You just mixed in a little water and off you went
