My kitchen island was installed on top of hardwood floor that was already in kitchen. Now I need to remove hardwood so I can install slate. What is the best way to saw along the base of the island cabinets ? The cut must be tight to the base of the cabinet so that rules out a circular saw. Also I have to deal with the added complication that there is an overhanging kick space at the bottom of cabinet so only about 5″ of head room.
