with older floors the larger the canvas the less 'mistakes' look like mistakes.

Normally i'm a do it yourselfer but i found 2 guys that refinished our floor for a price it wasn't worth my time, renting the equip, or the learning curve. I'll see if I have their card somewhere.

wow thanks for all the input you guys, I am now thinking either rent the sander or just get somebody to work the whole house when we are done with the kitchen.

If we could find a karate kid that'd probably be the easiest solution

If your looking at the whole house now just pay the guy. Its like drywall IMO. Yes I can do it, but I sure don't want to.

Corbet...I'm with you. I swore I would never sand drywall again...unless its just a hole my kid puts through it, and even then I might pay someone! I helped my brother do all his hardwood floors back in KY. I won't do that again either!!!
