ultra thin Hardwood Floor molding..


Basically I'm getting one room sanded and staind, and another room leaving lighter color stain, the door in between is really close to the floor and its a hollow cheap door. If i shave it it could break and would be a pain in the neck...so my question is do they make hardwood floor trim that is like a thin as paper, (this trim is to go in between the rooms under the door, i dont know what you call it...)

why do you need to put somthing under the door rather than regular hard wood strips throughout?.... you only need transition when there is a change of materials and looks like you don't have such in your case..... but if this is the case already as looks like you are not replacing the flooring, may be the guy who install the flooring for you did a bad job and required to put in those things when changing direction... normally... even changing direction do not require any of such if the guy know how to install without leaving gaps....

anyway... you probably need to trim the door anyway... if the door break... you then need to purchase another door... there isn't really magic .....

It's called a "threshold "and if I hear you right, you want one to seperate the light floor from the darker floor? The thinest one that I know of is the ugly aluminum ones. They come in a few different colors and are pretty flat but if you want wood super thin I think you're out of luck. Why don't you cut the bottom of the door with a circular saw with a fine trim blade?
