This platform was in dire need of some care. Thx to this forum I think it 's looking pretty good. There was a good bit of wear, along with gouges and grain separation. Started with an 80 grit belt sander, followed by 120 grit belt, and then 150 random orbit. Then two treatments with 75/25 Linseed Oil/Mineral Spirits. Brushed on, let rest for 30 mins and then wiped off. Gave another wipe about an hour later. Separated coat 1 and 2 by a week.
