Even with this hand holding they still managed to rip the thermostat from the wall, wires and all; I could hear it happen as I said "gently" for the 3rd time. Had to go over and pull a new control wire all on my dime, so when I say they are likely too stupid, I am simply stating facts, not making judgements.

    Home Remodel: Do, Don'ts, Advice

    I need to put a transition (reducer?) going into the kitchen. Everything I’ve found doesn’t match, isn’t wide enough, and/or only comes in huge lengths. I was thinking of using a plank of leftover that I cut at an angle to make a sort of ramp. That allows me to get a good finish match and I can just push the tongue into the groove rather than having a raised bump covering the seam.

    Terrible idea? Any thoughts on the best way to cut a taper into a board?

    Yes, that is the right way to do it. A tablesaw is definitely the best way to make the cut but it is kind of a dangerous one if you don't know what you are doing.

    Perhaps buying a door saddle and ripping it length wise to the proper width.

    If the pipe if big enough they can send a robot down to cut the lateral, but it’s likely not that big and you might not have robot money…

    So if it’s a simple line, go for it. If it’s more complicated, rip and replace.

    You got the process right, but before they blow the sock in, they run a camera to inspect and hydrocut any roots already intruding into the pipe. I also wouldn't trust that liner to be strong enough to resist a tree that is actively growing into the pipe. I'd bet that for damn near the same money you could call someone to pull a new fused HDPE pipe through the existing and never worry again.
    Wait, how can we trust this guy^^^ He's clearly not DJSapp

    possibly a bad idea, but maybe run it through a planer with braces to create the desired angle. seems safer than a table saw.

    This. If you're not confident with the TS you can make that take with a hand power plane. Or the even more ghetto tool would be a belt sander.

    If you want it to look perfect you should do the taper cut on the bottom of your filler board so you don't need to refinish it.

    Pretty comfortable with a table saw, and I’ve got loads of scrap. I’ll give it a shot. Thanks.

    Not sure I understand. Would that not effect the angle of the groove?

    He's saying all the cutting/sanding is the bottom side, the top you see won't be molested.

    I tiled a floor in W Hartford CT this summer, took measurements and made a threshold here in VT for them.
    Screwed a strip of wood to the back of a 1x8 board and fed it trough my Dewalt planer on slow speed. Tapers from 1/4" to 3/4" over 6". Finish sand and a coat of Danish oil to seal it. They picked it up and stained it to match before installation.

    They ordered enough tile, even had a half left over.

    If it's an extreme angle the tongue might be messed up. If that's the case take a bit of material off of the bottom shoulder and top edge of the tongue so that it fits tightly. You're going to have to glue the thing in with subfloor glue anyway. The real value in this method is retaining the factory finish and slightly eased edge, which you'll never duplicate.

    Listen to @Climbervan A couple of notes:

    With those type of cuts, there is a tendency for work to want to climb the blade and get outta whack. You may want to experiment with building a sacrificial jig to hold the board and of coarse custom push sticks as needed.

    Subfloor glue is probably fine but I've been having great luck with the slightly more expensive polyurethane construction adhesives.

    Not sure how you are finishing that wall but you may want to install after your base. Its may easier to just notch down your base square and then butt to it.

    I guess “hand plane” isn’t an option with this crowd.

    I've got everything from low angle block planes to a #7 and I wouldn't use them for this...except maybe to clean up the tablesaw cut.

    Shouldn't be dangerous on the table saw if you use feather boards to keep the board against the fence and down on the table--you'll probably need a high auxiliary fence to clamp the down pushing feather board to . Use the guard if you can--depends on the guard, but at least use the riving knife if the saw has a separate one. A push stick of course. And stand out of the line of fire. If you don't know what I'm talking about do it another way.

    Um...yeah. This is a job site, not a wood shop. Take your apron and go back to calibrating your Saw Stop with the 6' outfeed table.

    Yeah, my Powermatic has neither a guard nor a riving knife, but if I were shopping for a new one I'd probably want at least the latter. I learned the hard way about kickback once after a co-worker found me unconscious on a jobsite. I'm much, much more careful now.

    Who hasn't pulled tomahawked pieces of wood out of walls and patched a few holes? Thousands of cuts will result in a few bad ones, still have ten [slightly wounded].

    When you set up the table saw, know what is behind you

    My buddy is a cabinet maker. All day every daymaking cuts of all types. A few years back he was rushing and got directly behind the blade. The piece kicks back and hits him right in sack. Ruptured his testicle. He had to get a ride to the local hospital and ended up having surgery that night.

    That story always makes me flinch.
