Haha. The carpet had been refreshed. The living room is one of the only rooms that has carpet.

How is the stair nosing fabrication going?

I ordered the groove bit to make a groove in the existing floor and hopefully use it to make a tongue on the stair nose. I practiced both that and the 1/2 round over bit on a scrap piece of oak with my rigid trim router and it blasted right through it to my surprise. Might return the metabo 2.25 hp plunge router I bought for 90 bucks marked down from 200.

We’ll see how it all goes

OK I got my round 1 inch thick nose cut and my groove cut and now when I went to install it with my existing hardwood it’s about 1/64th too thick. I’m assuming the existing floor was refinished at least once probably twice.

What is the best way to plane this down right now? I wish I would’ve discovered this before I rounded the edge and cut it to width. I’m debating between sanding it down or planing it down with an electric hand planer but I thought I’d run it by you guys to see what is the preferred method.

I would go ahead and install the nosing. Sand it with an edger to finish it off. Be sure to round the top edge over again with a block plane and 60 grit paper. The front of the top edge, right where it starts the round over is the area where the finish will wear off first. It needs a gradual curve. Finish it off with 100 grit. A random orbit will work the bast.

Is the nosing already installed?
