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

Sanding Timber Floors

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.
