Hardwood 1/8 lower than tile schluter edging
The hardwood 3/4 inch by 3 1/2 nail down will be installed to meet an angled join between tiled kitchen and wood floor in livibg room. There is a metal schluter edge on the tile. Is there any way I can raise the edge of the hardwood so it meets the tile without a 1/8 inch drop . I thought I may do one of 2 things . Try to find some wood less than 1/8 ich thick and lay it for the first couple inches along side the schluter . Or apply a layer of floor leveler sloped to raise the hardwood up about 1/8 inch . I do not know what kind of floor levveler would bind to the OSB and not crack later .. We do not want to put in a wood transition as this is american cherry and I can only find an unfinished cherry strip . I would have to finish it myself then the finish would weaar off easily ..
