Bellawood


I installed brazillizn cherry 3/8 x 3" hardwood flooring. Some of the flooring is bowed and I would like to replace them. I was told you can drill a hole at each end, cut it out and replace it with a new piece. Can anyone explain this in more detail?

measure the width of the board to be taken out and the one to be put back in to make sure the replacement is the same size .

make two angle cuts near the end joints about 1" away from the side joints.
make two length cuts 1" from the side joints . you should be able to pop out the center of the board now.

carefully chisel up to the end joints . take a pry bar and tap the remaining board from the side joints.

On the replacement board cut the bottom of the grooves off and cut a 45 on the bottom of the groove that is left.

Put a bead of PL400 in the hole slide the board into the hole and apply a weight .

I always do a dry run first . Place a 1' piece of strong string like fishing line across the hole . if the board don't fit flush it will need to be trimmed a little more.
This way you will be able to get it back out.
