Kitchen Floor Boards
Published 2013-01-22 · By James Bursa
The hardwood floor in the kitchen was incomplete in the corners next to the fireplace. Towards the end of autumn we cleared the area and fitted the missing boards.
Manually hammering nails into pre-drilled holes is good for small amounts of work. The wood is Mahagony.
Compressed air tools make the work much faster.
A special tool is inserted between the wall and the new board, and racked to push it snug against the adjacent board.
Then a compressed air nail gun is used.
Spot the boundary between the new boards and the dust-worn older boards.
Careful cutting is needed to fit the boards around the pipes and window mouldings.
