I am using Bella Wood pre-finished cherry flooring in a bathroom. There are sections where I cut that are unfinished and some sections that are sanded(where the pre-finish was damaged). Is there a way to apply a finish to both the pre-finished sections and the unfinished that will look the same?

WELCOME TO THE FORUM

You could take a scrap piece and sand off some finish and see how "ambered" their finish looks compared to the bare wood. If it adds a hue it could be an oil base finish. If it added no hue, it is likely a waterbased finish. Finishers and refinishers are using WB finishes more and more as they dry fast and don't stink when wet.

Many WB polyurethanes can be cross linked and/or a catalyzer added to an already tough finish. One that is available at HD is Parks Pro Finisher. This is also a good finish for cabinetwork.
