Flooring Transition Question???

Putting down solid oak flooring in the kitchen and family room. This is 3/4" stock.

I have a laminate in an adjoining room with about a 6' archway where the two flooring materials will meet. The laminate is less than 3/8" thick.

My Oak flooring supplier (not a big box, a pure flooring manufacturer) says he does not know of any pre-made transition strips available.

Do I then need to make one somehow?

One would think that others have had this same issue and that a pre-made transition piece would be available.

Thanks for any tips.....

I never buy store transitions. BUT I have the luxury of being able to make mine in my shop. If you have a table saw and good eye hand coordination, you can do the same. Just draw the profile on the end of a piece of oak stock and set the blade to make each cut.
