What is this and where can I buy more?


We put laminate flooring down. In the kitchen and hall, there are step downs into another room. The subfloor is too thick to use the stair nosing that coordinates with the laminate floor. See below:

When we removed the old floor, there was a long piece of oak trim the did the job perfect. Below you can see what we removed:

I need to buy more of it -- this piece is cracked and I need a second segment for the other step-down.

The interior dimensions of this piece are 2"x1.5" I thought it was called "outside corner moulding" but I can't find outside corner moulding that is this large. Do I have the right name for it?

Any ideas where I can buy more of this? Or an alternative way to finish these step downs? We were going to shave off the top of a bunch of laminate boards and "face" the exposed subfloor edge, and then use the coordinating nosing, but that just seems like a lot of work.

Thoughts? THANKS!!

That is a stair nose for hardwood flooring. Most flooring stores should be able to get them for you. You can also have a local mill shop make exactly what you need.
