repairing an oak floor

Postby nivsan » Mon Dec 13, 2010 1:35 pm

My son has just purchased an old house & all the solid oak floorboards are nailed down.
He needs to install some pipework underneath the floor & would like to know what would be the best way of lifting the boards without damaging them?

You can run a circular saw down the tongue of 1 board and lift it to gain access
