Do you mean this plank is in the middle of your floor layout?? This plank is in the last row of boards in the middle??

{1} is the one against the wall. Hope my design shows up right. I need to cut some length off.

probably a dremel or something would work.

I agree with Floorcraft that a dremel may cut the laminate. A dove-tail saw is under $10, and would also do the job. The saw is a flat 2-sided sawblade about 10 inches long with an offset handle. It can be used for trimming jambs as well. Heck, I have even used it to cut a toilet off the floor that was glued down with silicone. Works well when you need to flush cut items with minimal clearance space. Look for it in the hand-tool section of your home improvement or hardware store.

I'll check out the dove tail saw, and dremel.
