how to cut installed oak flooring
I need to cut into an oak floor in order to install a transition to a tile floor that is a bit high. If I extend the transition by lengthening it, it won't be as noticeable that the tile floor is higher. But this required that I somehow neatly cut about 4" from the end of the oak planks that extend to this passageway.
How can this be done neatly? A circular saw won't be able to reach the planks nearest the wall. Beyond taking up the floor, cutting and reinstalling (and refinishing) is there some tool or technique that would work?
