My suggestion isn't exactly perfect but noone will know but you. Cut a
rabbet in the underside of the replacement board to the level of the groove you
were looking to cut, drop it into place and nail accordingly. If you were
wanting to produce a tongue to mate with a groove in the board already in place,
I would simply glue a slat (or a biscuit if your prefer into the in place board,
route it to the proper height, and then drop the bottom rabbetted board into
place. As the newboard would be sitting on the subflooring anyway, a few well
placed nails or some construciton adhesive would hold it in place without
As for making the boards simply butt against each other, I know that that
is the method recommended by the carpenter Richard Silva on the series "Ask This
Old House" as I have seen the episode where he shows homeowners how to replace
some damaged boards in their hardwood flooring.
Just my two cents worth,
