    I would experiment on a scrap piece of wood. I have used tung oil to refinish furniture and generally never let a wet edge dry.

    I would do it all at once. Professionals stain or poly the whole floor start to finish.

    Apply it all at once. Hard to blend doing it in sections. Will look splotchy.
