DIY Oak Floor restoration

My house has 65 year old oak flooring that for most of its life was covered by carpeting. A few years back we removed the carpeting and have been debating what to do to restore the flooring. We do not want to empty the entire house of furniture and have a PRO do the sanding/refinishing. I did sand/refinish the floors in our previous house and don't want to do it again. Thinking the NEXT owners can PROFESSIONALLY do the entire flooring on the main floor (LR/DR, 3 BRs, 2 HWs) before moving in

I decided to try Lundmark Clear paste, putting on 2 or 3 coats hand waxing them and they looked great while the wax was still somewhat wet (shows the potent beauty) but after drying thoroughly overnight they disappoint. I did use a wax remover pretreatment before wax applied.

Any ideas? I want to be able to do flooring in sections moving furniture around after each section complete

Given the diversity of the human species, there is no “normal” human genome sequence. We are all mutants.
