removing hardwoods around cabinets without taking out the kitchen counter


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

http://www.harborfreight.com/3-3-8-e...saw-94626.html

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!!
