I'm going to be installing a tile entryway inside of our front door. We have red oak floors and I am planning to remove the floor in that area so that the tile will sit relatively flush with the surrounding floor, rather than sit on top of the floor.

We just spent a lot of $$ having the floor refinished and this is obviously a one shot cut.

The question is: What is the most effective (and safe) way to cut out the hardwood? The area measures approximately 5 X 4 feet. I will put the tile on top of the sub floor with the backer board.

a regular circular saw will do the job,set your depth to match the thickness of your hardwood.lay some masking tape as a guide,you may need a jig saw to get the last few inch's at the wall.cut a second set of lines inside the first and use a crow bar to pull out the flooring..good luck
