First, many thanks to you guys for providing lots of answers to everyone's questions, that I followed for quite some time before I did this. Also, this is for a lake house, and we started out going to use hickory, but my wife switched the cabinets to maple, so I switched to a country maple that looked a lot like hickory. This is unfinished 3/4 inch by 4 1/4. Around 1200 sq ft. Sanded with a usand. Finished with one coat of bona sealer, then 2 coats of traffic satin. I rolled the sealer and the finish. These pictures are really after the first coat of finish, I don't have pictures after the second coat yet.

Things I learned, I should have spent more time with the coarsest sandpaper, and gotten things just a bit more smooth. But since it was a lake house, and we were going for a rustic look, I don't think it turned out too bad. The satin finish really helps. If you get on your hands and knees you can certainly find sanding issues, otherwise, I think it turned out OK.

I had 1 run where I could see about 35 ft along the boards, and another almost 50ft. I started with the 35ft run, and luckily by the time I got to the hallway into the bedroom that made up the 50ft run I was very close to being straight, and could fix it with the first board.

I know you can find problems, but I'm proud of the results.

Thanks again. I don't seem to be able to get the pictures to show up in this message, sorry about that.

Nope, something is quirky with the bb code and the image tag. Maybe to keep spammers from posting great balls of fire.

It should work as long as the image is properly addressed.
