Q: This is similar to a previous question, but I want to see if I understand it correctly. I have hardwood in the dining room and now want to put it into the kitchen. Because the hardwood is to be staggered I will need to remove some boards to do this, am I understanding you correctly that I will need to remove some boards by using a circular saw to cut part of the board out?
Then using a chisel to carefully work underneath the remainder of the board so as not to damage the next board?
A: That is correct, unless you have a tool such as I do called the Fein Supercut which can plunge cut a straight cut right through a board without the need of a chisel.
