    The Janka scale for wood hardness list red oak at 1290, white oak at 1360, and hard maple only a little higher at 1450. Hard maple is the primary wood used for bowling allies and I'm sure you didn't have bowling balls dropped on the floor and I doubt any of you guests weighed enough to excerpt that much pressure. It would take a person weighing 300+ lbs standing on a sq.inch heal on the steel ball to make the indentation used in Janka test. The pins used in the heels posted by BRP has a sizable flat head and not likely less than sq. inch.

    I've seen stiletto heels worn on Southern yellow Pine floors without indentations and SYP only has a Janka rating of 870.

    I'm more inclined to think that you finish may not have been completely cured. Curing time is going to depend on the type of finish, number of coats, thickness of coats, curing time between coats, and age of the finish.

    By the way are you sure that they are indentations and not a blemish, like fish-eyes, in the finish?
    What the heck does a Janka hardness test have to do with 3/4" oak flooring? Your diatribe is absolutely meaningless as are your "hardness" numbers. These aren't 2" thick planks DUH and there could even be a knot or a pin knot, as he said this wasn't the most expensive grade of oak floor.

    Pig Slop!

    Questioning the fact set presented by the orginal poster which he repeated several times isn't opinion or inquiry you were disputing what he presented. TWISTED you are Jack.

    this may sound bad but if that was the only place to be schooled, I would rather go with out. I wouldn't trust the education level.

    the fact that you can't piece it together kind of says it all
