You can see in one room I cut the butts at 45 and in another I did square cuts.  I think I might like the 45 room better.  I used 3" ring shanks and 3.25"screw shanks.  And I think the pre-painted heads w/air nailer turned up high is the way to go.  It looks good and I can't think of any easier way to stick a floor down.

I'm really interested in how this floor turned out.  Have you sanded it yet?

thanks

should be sanding within the month, but I really like it as it is so looking into how to knock off some spots.  Might modify a hand plane and try planing it instead to leave more character.

Have you thought about using a scrub plane? I used one on my floor in a few spots, and now that it has been down for several years, I wish I had done more. Just make sure you go with the grain so you don't make chips.

Just set the plane so it takes very shallow furrows, and use it to level out any high spots. After finishing it looks a lot like some of the high end wood floors that called themselves scraped. You can see an example at 

penningtonhardwoods.com/scraped.htm which I just googled using "scraped hardwoods"

I saw the thread title and remembered this thread.  I thought, "hey, I wonder if he has pictures of it finished?"   Click to the last page and WOW!

Floor looks great!  What finish is on there?

thanks for posting
