    Edge Clamps

    Hello all, Have any of you folks got recommendations on which edge clamps to buy for worktop edging? I need them specifically for the thick abs edging, but will use them in the future for other bits as well. I normally use Bessey' but as they're not going to be used that often I don't really...

    Hello all, Has anyone got any experience with the thinner laminate tops (12mm to 20 odd mm or so), what are they like in the flesh? Trying to provide a more contemporary look without the price of solid surface or granite and this seems to fit the bill. But never actually used them myself...

    Built in kitchen extractor into custom canopy.

    The switches are actually on the underside, so you can get to them when it's installed. Sorry, I wasn't specific enough re where it was being placed. It is on an outside wall and it is being ducted outside. And again, my fault for not describing it properly, it's an electric "range style"...

    Built in kitchen extractor into custom canopy.

    Hello all, I'm building a canopy over a "range style electric cooker" in a kitchen I'm installing soon. I've been looking at this integrated type with the mesh over the fan here, and then saw that it may be a better idea to have the fan activated from nearer to the worktop, with a separate...

    Oil oak before decorator is in, or after?

    I'll see what they say, they are very particular :shock: They aren't old beams though, just for context. They are new timber, fairly square, very good grade as some pieces have lots of rays visible. Cheers _Dan

    Oil oak before decorator is in, or after?

    Thanks for your reply. Client wants them oiled yeah, to match the stairs and doors etc. So gotta go with that finish either way. I meant frog tape, it's usually pretty good with stuff like this. Duct tape often leaves a residue on things I find. Cheers _Dan

    Oil oak before decorator is in, or after?

    Hello all, Quick query... We've installed some oak beams in a barn conversion we are on. Uprights holding up the horizontals and then gallows brackets to complete the look. Using hard wax oil on it all. Question is, is it best to finish them before the decorator is in then get him to stick...

    Help with insulating chipboard flooring

    I was hoping to get the chipboard up and relay if possible, but with it not being screwed it's proving tricky to do without too much damage. I've had a go at taking a board up by drilling out the heads of the nails, didn't pull through as they're ring shank. I haven't tried punching them...
