Installing baseboard shoe with warped floor
Hello, working with wood is new to me so please excuse any terminology I may lack. I refinished the oak baseboard in our living room. Since the shoe (the little peice that goes between the floor and baseboard) was cheap pine and impossible to strip I decided to buy new oak shoe and install it. I am working through my learning curve with this. The bigest problem I've encountered is where the 90 year old red oak flooring is warped, pushing up the flooring where a 3' section of shoe need to be installed. Picture 1' straight, then 1' of a rainbow arch, 1 straight (the straight sections are at slightly differnt levels). I expect this is due to a past water leak from the bathroom above. How do I bend the shoe to fit? The floor is only warped in this small corner of the room so I don't want to do anything to the floor.
