On March 17, 2007, Dave FINALLY installed the threshold (transition strip) between the kitchen and the addition. It's a 1/4 inch step down from the kitchen to the addition. The problem: There was a 2inch by 10inch hole cut in the vinyl right in the middle of the transition area where a heat vent used to be. A normal metal step-down threshold wasn't wide enough to cover the hole so Dave decided to use a 3 3/16 inch wide baseboard trim piece as the threshold. Dave used his Dad's router to carve a 2 1/4 inch wide dado cut off the back side to fit it in place over the transition area. This little project required the use of the following tools, equipment, etc: Router and 1/2" bit, table saw, compound miter saw, jig saw, belt sander, ompressor, Rafter angle square, pencil, tape measure, extension cord, finish nailer with nails, vinyl patch piece, utility knife, glue, cup, and stir stick, small chunk of plywood (1 foot by 2 foot), two 25 pound dumbells, and latex filler for nail heads.
