    Is that patch piece going to remain lighter in tone in comparison to the rest of the floor? Iow, are subsequent coats of the clear coat going to change its appearance to any degree? Thanks

    I've seen Tom hit his chisel with the side of the hammer before. Why the heck does he do that? Also, it looks like they should have stained that patch board before applying the poly to match the rest of the floor.

    Went to do a repair Fri. on a laminate h/w floor. The original installation was, floor prep, then glue, then a layer of cork, more glue, then the wood. The floor was buckling in 4 places. After removing the first and second pcs. the shit started moving in on itself. It slid a half an inch in 2 minutes. Whole floor has to come up. I've fixed my own floor once, buckled in the middle, managed to get the first pc. out, had to cut it 3/16ths all the way down and replace, but since tarpaper was the underlayment there was no problems.

    wouldn't it make more sense to sand the new piece before you install it? that way you aren't sanding the other boards

    Best to sand/stain/and topcoat the board before final install after checking for level via trial fit with masking tape pulls (yeah they work). ย This is flat wrong.

    I love the way he removed it. All the other examples I've watched so far use power tools that I don't own and don't want to buy/rent. Thanks for the simplification ๐Ÿ™‚

    Wow I love this.. Bought a house and in every room were connections for cable/satellite through the floor so it shouldn't be too hard to do this since holes are there already. On my list of things to do. Wish me luck. Love This Old House.

    am I crazy or is the rest of that floor stained golden oak?
    I had to do this work recently in my own house. Set up a jig on one side and on the end of where you are replacing the board, and run a plunge router with a fat cutting bit straight up the middle of the board. It gets rid of enough wood in the middle of the board that you can immediately remove the other two pieces.
    And even if you use the router to make a nice, straight line for the new board to butt up to, there's still a little chiseling for Tom to do in the corners where the round router bit can't reach…

    I absolutely have the highest adoration for tommy not only for his superb woodworking skills, which are of course immense, but for his ability to teach someone the basics on proper chisel technique and not come off as condescending or โ€˜man-splainโ€™ as I believe the youth call it lol. Heโ€™s such a rare talent.
