The threshold of my remodel project
I'm working on a threshold.
In room (a) is an oak floor.
In room (b) I've put down a floating floor.
Where they meet is not smooth. Not a clean edge.
Part of the edge of the oak used to be under a half-wall, subsequently removed, that divided the two rooms.
Because of the layout I did not cut the oak to a smooth edge. One end meets a wall corner so I stayed with the current jagged edge instead.
The goal now is to put down a threshold between the two.
It's not going to be too difficult to do, at least putting it down. Making it is another question.
My goal is to do so with a single piece of wood, 11 ft 11 inches.
But off-the-shelf thresholds come in 8 ft at the most, at least what I've seen.
Because of the jagged edge in between I am not going to be able to put down the center strip so often used to hold them down. I'll just block up from beneath and use appropriate screws w/ pilot holes of course.
The plan at this point is to use some 3 1/2" door casing, 12 ft long, that is already arched nicely on one side and simply return the favor on the other side with my router. (Both sides will probably go across the router table just to keep things consistent.) Should make for a nice smooth transition between the two floors.
My query here is for input:
How might you accomplish such a transition with a single piece?
Or would you just go with two pieces off-the-shelf and call it a day?
Or do you have any other ideas that might contribute?
