I had a rather ambitious idea to tear up the tile and plywood in my kitchen in order to expose the pine floor underneath. It's all done except for around the cabinets and I can't reach under the overhang of them to cut the rest. what can I use? I don't want to remove the plywood from underneath them because I need the height. thx.
Tough problem there, if we're redoing the kitchen floors we opt to pull the base cabinets generally. Can you release the fasteners anchoring it to the floor/wall and lift it up and set it temporarily on some blocks to get the clearance in order to cut back up under the kickplate. Or might be able to get a wormgear saw up in there, but I doubt it. Hope that helps a bit.
You can buy a tool called a toe kick saw for under cabinet cutting. It is an offset type radial saw with a small blade. A company called Crain (#795) makes one, it is not usually found in rental shops.
