Sanding Timber Floors
I have cyprus pine timber floorboards which I would like to sand and stain. I have tried to do this in the past and have made a huge mess of it and I have always been left with poor results. Is there someone out there who might advise me how best to proceed? What tools etc?

Many thanks:)

Don't take this the wrong way, but I'd never suggest you try to sand a floor for a DIY project. 1st, you have a soft wood that'll quickly be eaten away by a sander. Next, it takes a lot of experience to sand a floor good. I have experience and I still don't consider myself great. If you are set in wanting to tackle this yourself, I can talk you through the steps but I do NOT recommend it.
