how to tie new hardwood floor into existing hardwood flooring

Hey guys I'm starting a project soon which i'm looking for advice as to what will be the best way. Right now my kitchen floor is tile and my dining room is hardwood. Theres a little wall seperating the two rooms. I plan on removing the wall and making the kitchen and dining room one big room. I want to remove the tile in the kitchen and install hardwood so hardwood will flow from the dining room straight into the kitchen. Whats the best way to tie the new floor into the old one. I'de like the floor the run the same direction, i know putting a un-raised wood transition in between the two room and installing new flooring from the transition out is one way but are there any other ways to join the two together ?

I don't understand...Is there some reason you can't nail in your new pieces like normal?

If the flooring strips are butt end to butt end---you will want to 'lace in' the new flooring---

This may sound like a nightmare job---but it's not that hard to do---you will be removing boards in the old flooring back to the nearest joint---

This is easiest done with a Skill saw and a sharp chisel----

rip the center out of the old board---three or four slices with the circular saw---pry out what you can and use the chisel to clean up everything left---
remove the bottom of the groove on the new board whare it meets the old one---and glue the board in with wood floor adhesive---

You know---this is harder to explain than to do---
