pore filler

Iíve got a nice piece of black walnut I milled down to use as a replacement part for a damaged piece of hardwood flooring. After sanding Iíve noticed the open pores in the walnut. Iím planning on using some water-based timbermate pore filler and after itís plenty dry (+24 hrs) giving it another good sanding before applying the same finish thatís on the rest of the floor. Question is about the finish Ė Iím using a minwax oil-based poly. Is it a bad idea to put the oil-based poly over the (fully cured) water based pore filler? Does that even matter as long as the pore filler is fully cured?

thanks in advance for your input!

Has the surrounding floor been treated with a grain filler? You can topcoat with an oilbase polyurethane. Personally, I wouldn't use an oil base topcoat on flooring.

no, the rest of the existing floor is oak (50+ years old) and did not appear to need pore filler.

Thats an odd combination to put a piece of walnut in a oak floor. Anyway do your heavy sanding before you use a grain filler. A grain filler you apply it and let is sit and thicken and then squeege the excess off. Then let it dry and the slight residue left is all you sand with 220 grit or finer paper.

As far as a finish, you would be better off using an actual floor finish. Regular Polyurethane isn't hard enough to use for a floor finish. You can put a oil based finish over a water based finish but you should scuff the old finish with some 220 grit or finer paper so the finish can adhere better. The grain filler won't affect it unless you have a residue left on the surface.
