Re: How do I cut wood flooring?
You do not need to angle the end cuts. I wouldn't worry about light mill marks that can be sanded out. Once the floor is installed, you'll sand it in place to even it all out, then apply the finish (oil based poly ).
When you install it, start with the groove to the wall and nail at an angle through the tongue to secure into place. A scrap piece with the groove intact will give you a "knock" block for installing the pieces tight with a hammer. Leave a 3/8" gap around the entire perimeter for expansion.
I suffer from CDO ... Its like OCD, but in alphabetical order, LIKE IT SHOULD BE!!!
