Renovating my apartment; started with walls, removed all base molding to run RG6/Cat5e throughout rooms under new base molding.
Here's a photo looking straight down from the wall (with molding removed). There's about 1" open space (on average) between the wall and edges of wood floor boards; this is perfect for running cable/ethernet wire. Problem is around 30-40 random boards extend to the wall, blocking my wire track, and I need to trim at least 1/2 inch of those boards to hide all wires.
I tried using my jigsaw at 90 degrees, but the base plate is too wide, cutting just over 1" of wood, not to mention cutting the subfloor too. Technically, I don't need to cut off entire pieces from each board; a wedge is sufficient provided it's deep enough to accommodate both wires, so I tried numerous jig saw angles but failed to get something working. I switched to hammer and chisel, but after 5 minutes (and minimal progress), I felt like I was escaping from prison :-)
I've got one more idea to try: if I can find a thinner base plate for my jig saw (B&D BDEJS600C), I should be able to manage the cut since I'd be closer to the wall. I'm open to any other ideas too. Just 1/2 inch track is all I need.
