Threshold problem

I just bought a house and we are starting one of many projects. We are opening up a wall that had a pocket door to make the doorway into the kitchen wider. I have to make the to floors meet but the problem i am running into is that there is no threshold wide enough. I need a wooden door threshold to be 7 inches wide and a 1in drop between the 2 floors. Does anyone know how i should tackle this. Thanks,

Sounds like you need to trim a 1"x 8" and round over the edges.
