removing hardwoods around cabinets without taking out the kitchen counter
 
dOES ANYONE HAVE AN IDEA ON HOW TO REMOVE HARDWOODS FLUSH WITH THE KITCHEN COUNTER WITHOUT REMOVING THE CABINETS? An exceptional tool that will work?

I was at Harbor Freight a few days ago and saw this.

I have know idea how well it works, but for $70, it might be worth a try.

I am currently installing new hard wood floors and cabinets. This is exactly why I don't want to run the hardwood under the cabinets. I know I wont ever be replacing these floors again, but it bugs be to create a problem for someone else.

When you say HARDWOODS, do you mean trim, flooring .... or what? Are there more than one type of wood?

A Toe Kick Saw is the tool to use. I'd also pick up an Oscillating saw while I was there to cut all the way into the inside corners.

A lot of people slam Harbor Freight for low quality. Fair enough, If you are a professional and use these tools on a regular basis, you would probably be better served buying higher end equip. For those of us that need specialty tools for a 1-time job, I either rent, or go to HF.

Last year, I put down 1,400 sqft of 20" Terazo tile. I got the 10" wet saw from HF for ~$300 and it worked like a champ! We did the job over 3 weekends, so renting would have been a pain, and cost just as much.

Don't forget to look for online coupons. 20% off is pretty standard there!!
