Beveling an oak threshold
For reasons that I would rather not go into, we need to fashion a new threshold for our patio doors. These are outswing doors. My contractor will use a piece of oak that is 3/4" deep. Although this matches up fine to the door, it seems that it will be a tripping hazard unless we taper the height of the threshold.
I would like to have the oak threshold beveled to meet the floor with a height of about 1/2". It seems pretty straightforward to me, providing you have the tools and the know-how. My contractor does not have the right tools. What type of woodworking equipment would be required? And any suggestions on how to find someone with the skills to do this?
