Planking gaps

    1920's wood has shrunken a bit. The gaps between the planking appear to be in need of either filling or splicing in some narrow planking strips. Would treating the planks with linseed oil help solve the problem. Anybody got any thoughts on how wide the gaps can be before they are a problem? I'm looking at 3/16".
