Thank you Carpets Done Wright

You gave me the following advise to undercut my hearth..

"Diamond blade in an angle grinder works good. Have someone with a spray bottle with water to keep the blade cool while cutting. Use damaged plank if there is one, to lay on the floor and run the grinder above it, to get the undercut the right height.

I have burned up too many Crain undercut saws trying to undercut stone hearths.

And end cap trim can be used also. Then fill the gaps that may be behind it with sanded caulk to match the mortar of the hearth."

I just wanted to say thanks, the angle grinder worked fine.
I had a helper hold a shop vac near the grinder and it did a great job with the dust. Thanks again!
