patching floor - removing wall ?????

This was also posted on the patching and wall forums

I am planning on removing a non-load bearing wall and have hardwood floor - strip oak finished on site on the entire 1st floor. However, I will be removing a 7 foot run of kitchen cabinets as well as the wall they are attached to, to open up the room.

What is/are the recomended way(s) of patching the section where there is no hardwood floor underneath the wall and cabinets that will be removed. The floor was not stained, but clear coat of satin poly.

Any suggestions??

Hard to match

I have seen people use an exotic wood for a nice contrast. This way you show off this area instead of trying to match. If the floors are old you may find it really hard to match up the grain pattern and stain. If you want to match exactly find a supplier in town that deals with old lumber.

The floors are about 1.5 years old. Red Oak, builder grade, clear coat of poly. I do have some wood floor in a closet that might be able to be used. Is that worth a try?
