Best nail hole wood filler for hard wood floor


I am planning to refinish my red oak hard wood floor and use provincial color stain. (It is a medium dark brown color) I have drilled several holes in the floor and put in nails from the top to cut down on squeaks. Now I need to fill the nail holes with wood filler that will stain the same color as the provincial stain color. I plan to fill the holes, then sand the floor with a drum sander and stain it. The stain is oil based and the the polyurethane I will be using is also oil based. My question is "which wood filler should I use to get the nail holes to blend with the provincial color stain"?

they make many different colors of filler but they are difficult to tell what color they'll be after drying and finishing. experiment first.
i have to wonder though at the effectiveness of nailing to stop squeaky flooring....?

Nailing the hardwood floor was an ideal I got from the internet. I put in spiral nails at a slight angle and used a nail setter to sink them well below the surface before I sand it. It has been very effective reducing the noise when walking on the floor.

Since you plan to sand the floor, take a small handful of saw dust from the sanders gag, and mix it with carpenters glue. Use just enough glue to kame a thick, slightly damp putty. Use this to fill the holes, then hand sand. When you sand the floor, the match should be perfect!
