I had to do some fairly difficult oak skirting last week. It had to be scribed both ways, into the floor and the wall by as much as an inch in places.
|Showing how bad some of the walls were|
With something like this I try to limit myself to being allowed to make three sets of cuts on each piece. One for the floor, one for the wall and then one just to make it a little tighter, all marked with a pair of compasses then cut with either a jigsaw or the electric plane and finished off by hand..
I can get it pretty tight in those cuts.
|The scribe cut for the floor - a slight bow in it I'm sure you'd agree!|
|A bend in this wall made it really difficult as oak doesn't like to bend!|
The customer was really pleased with the result and it now means that the room can be finished. The pictures don't really show just how far out the floor was!
