The House That Jack Built – Finishing the Closet

Tongue & Groove Wood Transition Strip

During the T&G (tongue & groove) hardwood floor installation we had to convert a groove board edge to a tongue edge.

To make the transformation we inserted (after applying wood glue) a wood transition strip in the groove, then secured the strip with nails.

After the glue set up, we extended the bedroom floor in to the adjoining closet.
