8 years ago we installed 3/4" tongue and groove hardwood throughout our downstairs, except for the kitchen. We now want to extend the hardwood into the kitchen and the easiest way would be to put a threshold between the two sections of floor. (the floor runs perpendicular to where the threshold would be)
However, we don't want that visual separation since the two rooms are completely open to each other. Any tips on removing some of the older planks and sliding the new ones in tp soften the transition?
You will need to cut a "relief" groove down the middle of one of the boards that you want to remove. Then you work this board out from the tongue and groove and the rest should be removed the opposite way as when they were installed.
