I am currently milling lots of wide plank of eastern white pine for our cottage floor. Boards will average 7.5 inch wide. I need to shortly make a decision for the finish to use and the nails to use.
NAILING: Current floor is 5/8 plywood over joists at every 16” .I will face nail the square edge board on the joist. Should I nail every 16” or every 32”
are common spiral nails as good as traditionnal cut nail as far as holding power? I don’t mind the look and they are much cheeper
So far I am favoring polymerized tung oil (sealer + top coat luster). We have young kids and a puppy dog, I am a little worried about “urine accident” on the floor like.
Any comment or suggestions
