I read the posting rules, and although the whole of this project is incomplete, this section of the project is.

Also, I know this post would probably be better suited for the Home remodeler section, but the reason I am posting here is to show a few of the cuts that I made with the multifunction tool that I recently reviewed.
So, please allow me a little latidtude.

Anyway. This is a section of my kitchen floor. A previous owner decided to cover the beautiful wood floors with 1/2 ” plywood. I thought that was not a good idea, so decided to remove the plywood. I started with a circular saw but as you can imagine, that was not the correct choice of tool, due to it being nearly impossible to get the depth of the blade to cut through the plywood without cutting into the floors. So I decided to go with the multifunction tool. It was also difficult to get the depth right, but the blades are so thin that any cuts into the floor look more like scratches, and I think would be easier to fill, and stain over.

The first picture is trying to show how cleanly the multi function tool cut the plywood with no splintering. (except for where I did not cut deeply enough to go all the way through, and when I went to pull up the plywood, it splintered)
The second picture is of the whole area that was cut out with the multifunction tool.
And the third picture is of the rest of the floor I still have to do. And, my incredibly large cat that doesn’t want me to finish that section.

I just can’t understand why people want to cover up hardwood floors like this. These will be really nice once you get them refinished. And looks a lot better than the vinyl that was installed over them.

I am looking forward to seeing pictures of the finished floor.
