I am doing some remodling. Part of that project is to expand the origional hardwood floors into another room that is currently vinal tile on plywood. The boards currently run N-S with a finishing piece running E-W at the boarder to that other room.
what I would like to do is take up that E-W board, remove pieces in the N-S boards so there is no definable breakpoint, install new boards so the floor continues N-S all the way through both rooms.
My question is can this be reasonably done? Will I be able to find wood the same size that will slide into boards cut 50 yrs ago? Will I be able to sand down the new boards so the height is the same? Will I be able to buy the same type of wood?
the current wood floor has some yellow wood along with some darker wood - I am assuming maple but don’t know.
