The old threshold boards were splintering from abuse by the rubber yard-boots. There’s a nub on the back of the boots that is useful for hooking on a solid surface and aiding in pulli0ng your foot up and out.
So I un-nailed the boards with a pry-bar and a crowbar, and vacuumed up years and years of sawdust, cobwebs, and crud inside the cavity.
The wall-board around the base was damaged and required some smoothing and repair with spackle, stuff that goes on purple and dries white to indicate when it’s actually dry – thus the pink-color.
Then I cut a couple pieces of left-over deck-Trex from the Low Granite Outcropping, and pre-drilled and then hammer-drilled the new boards home. Now it won’t splinter. Melt perhaps.
