Re: How to deal with column for flooring
Seems like you got the answers you need. Why don't you use the jamb saw on three sides and cut the round over off only on the side you can't access. A careful cut with a fine tooth saw and you could just fasten the off cut back in place afterward. Nobody will ever notice that small of a difference. Particularly since it's tucked into a tight place.
