You mention center nailing may lead to cracking.  I thought if the board shrinks and swells with grain the best point to nail would be the center as it would move out from center in each direction.

Thanks for taking the time to post all these pictures, shinnlinger!  I'm loving it.  Old fashioned, simple, rugged, rustic.  It just doesn't get any better.

As I now look at my floor, and you can see it in the pics, I in fact did center nail the wider boards and they have not split.   A buddy of mine did a similar floor and countersunk screwed his floor down and plugged it.  I haven't been at his place in a bit but I will inquire if he has had any splitting.   A lot more work though IMO.

This is what I'm doing in my camp build in between sub flooring. I will be doing that also for the real floor.

Today I got to sand a room.

I started with 100 grit but ended up going with 80  Next room I will start with 60 but 80 did leave some texture, which I like.

In the corners I used this little beast.

Every once in a while you have to sink the nails a bit further.  The screws are for this areas where I needed a little more hold.


After running the sander in both directions I was pleased with the results.

So I vacuumed the dust and mixed up some tung oil.  I thinned with it roughly 25% solvent to help it penetrate.

Rolled on the first coat and made it pop!

Me too!  I can't see how anybody would want fake, modern flooring.  Also it boggles me how people will carpet over nice hardwood floors.  Ugh.  Thanks again for taking the time to put up the pictures.  I'll be able to show the wife what good old fashioned flooring will look like in our addition.

I hit the floor with some more tung oil according to this site.  http://www.realmilkpaint.com/products/oils/tung-oil-wood-finishes/#howtouse
I'll let you know how it turns out next weekend when I head back up there...
