Tradesman using plasterboard filler on gaps in wooden floor
We decided to sand and varnish bedroom floors. Tradesman is using a hand sander for the job, instead of belt sander, the area is fairly large - surely this won't give a nice finish? Also, he is filling in gaps in the floor with regular plasterboard filler. We'd have thought that wood filler or resin would have been more appropriate. Should we be concerned?

Sounds like you have a right cowboy on the job my advice is get rid as wood fillers ie brummer are available in a variety of different colours i fail to see why he would use plasterboard filler not acceptable
