O.K., so you have wooden floors and grooves and you have to remove a piece. How you do it? Like this …
Please enjoy the fake and fake smile of the blog that I use outside when I'm a mess of home renovation.
The reasons why it is necessary to pull on a single piece of male and female floor are varied. You may want to see how the floor is below. Your cat may have pee and you would like to replace a section without destroying all the floor around it. Or maybe, just maybe, you do it for no reason, apart from your renewed undiagnosed mental illness at home You could also Trychosis.
I'm not sure you know it or not, but I'm in the middle of a design decision. If you rip my old plans down to the older floors, or if I let it all. This is where Trychosis gets me in trouble every time.
My floor trimmer pulled up a small piece of my hardwood oak floor while he was here assessing what my flooring options were. He cut a small part of my floor in such a way that if I wanted to put the piece back, no one would ever know that it had been removed.
I wanted to try
How to lift a floorboard
- Choose the table you want to remove. The shorter the table, the easier it will be to lift.
- Slowly execute a sharp cutter along the slots on both sides of the panel.
- Continue to cut with the cutter progressively deeper in the tongue below.
- When you do not feel any resistance, you are through the tongue.
- Gently lift the board, using a lever bar, if necessary.
So I did. And now I'll show you how to do it in case you want to try it. Because of your Trychosis.
The reason why I could not easily lift a piece of this hardwood floor is because of how well it is fixed. If the floor has spaces between the boards, you can get a saw to cut between the boards. Not so when it is so tight.
The first thing I had to do was take down a couple of finished nails that were attacking. If you have any nail that sticks to it using just a nail and a hammer to hammer it. If you do a do-it-yourself and do not have a fingernail punch, I'll let you know right now that your trouble is not as bad as you think. Also you should buy a nail punch.
Your second step to remove a single piece of hard and slotted wood is to slide a cutter along the seam between two boards. Just drag it gently. Keep doing this, going deeper and deeper until you feel you have cut the whole tongue of the hardwood.
This is not a fast process. It probably took me 45 minutes to cut both sides of a 2 & # 39; table. You have to go carefully so as not to cut yourself or slip and cut hardwood.
The sharper your knife is, the easier it will be.
Do not pull to any part of your body. Make sure your hands, legs and feet are out of reach in case you slip.
Once you have cut the tongue, there may still be nails that hold the strip down. Raise it gently with a prybar or a hammer.
Once he pulls freely he pulls out the table.
This technique cuts both languages on both sides of the board you removed.
Now you can take a moment to fix what is under the floor you have removed. If you're lucky it will be money. You'll be staring at tears and tears of money. Or a hidden Renaissance painting. Myself? I was staring at another plan.
Once you have satisfied your Trychosis, simply clean away sawdust and chips and replace the board. If it's going down forever, just sprinkle the back with wood glue before putting the wood back in place.
One can not say that one of those floors has been removed and put back down.
If your floors are against built-in cabinets or baseboards, use a multisaw to cut the end of the board.
The reason why you would not use it to cut the sides of the floor is because even if the cut is very thin, it is even more often than the seams between the boards. In other words, if you put the floor back on, the cuts would not be as invisible as they are if you use a small knife.
Again, if you're a do-it-yourself and do not own one of these tools, you really should. Mine is the Dremel Multi-Max, but there are some different ones.
So now that I have seen another section of the pine floor under the floor of my dining room, are I closer to making a decision about the opportunity to pull up the floors?
Yes. Yes, they are.
