Leveling a very unevrn floor


I have 2" rough cut oak(some warping)sub floor. It was covered with partial wood and it was still uneven. Can I put a soft foam installation between this rough oak and new MDF subfloor to level it out? Or is their a better idea? Remodeliong a strange house need help on ideas. Thanks for your help Rethabs1

Rough cut oak subfloor is probably full 1" and might well be machined flat (or flatter) with a rental floor sander. A long 6' level would be helpful as a guide.For impossible sections because of age or whatever, leveling compounds can be helpful. Consider plywood for the new base. MDF is fine for situations where no moisture will ever be present, but in a bath or kitchen it reverts to 'crumble board' when the inevitable disaster occurs. Good luck.

Want it done right? Rip it all down to the floor joists and start from scratch.
