Cutting Under Door Jams


I borrowed this oscillating tool from a friend at work and it was a LIFE-SAVER!

I just put a piece of scrap flooring up against the door jam, set the blade on top and started it up. I just kept pressure on it and moved it left to right until I cut through the door trim.

Knocked out the cut piece with a hammer and screwdriver . . .

and slipped the flooring underneath!  It really was much easier than I was anticipating and it looks marvelous!!!  I need to ask for one of these tools for Christmas!!!  Jason . . . . Amie . . .  😉




I just want to give a shout out to “Ryobi” . . . I bought this 4 piece Ryobi set about 3 years ago from Home Depot – https://tinyurl.com/ybg3wqjs.  Being a DIY’er I absolutely love these tools.  Not super fancy but they are super DIY friendly.  The batteries are all interchangeable and this little 5″ blade circular saw is the best, lightweight and no cords.  I dooooo love my tools, lol.  Oh, I’m cutting some hardie backer cement board for my bar top – I’m putting this 1/4″ backer board over 1/2″ exterior plywood before I can tile, in case you were wondering. LOL
