 Post subject: Cupboard door handle with wide screw - failed
PostPosted: Tue Aug 14, 2018 4:29 pm 
Hi,

My wooden cupboard door handle was screwed onto its mount with a wide screw. When the handle came away from the screw I tried filling the hole with wood and glue, drilling a little hole and screwing it back in but it failed again. Can someone advise me how to do this properly?

Thank you!

 Post subject: Extra extra wide doors needed
PostPosted: Tue Aug 14, 2018 3:49 pm 
So in our wisdom, my partner and I had a pocket door system installed that is just under 2m wide. It's a telescopic system for 2 doors and the doors go into a pocket on the left hand side but we now need to find doors that are a meter wide. Any suggestions for where I might get these from? and how to avoid them being too heavy to move?

For clarity the pocket ...

 Post subject: Is this upright a supporting part of the staircase?
PostPosted: Mon Aug 13, 2018 8:50 am 
We have removed the stud wall that made up the cupboard under the stairs. However, we don’t think these vertical wood uprights are supporting the actual staircase.....however, we would appreciate some expert advice from forum members -are these ok to remove to create an open space under the staircase? The house is a 1930’s semi detached.

 Post subject: Placing joists onto wall with acute angle
PostPosted: Fri Aug 10, 2018 11:45 pm 
So I'm putting some joists onto a wall plate but they are 8inch and the roof pitch means they won't get on the wall plate without me cutting them from the top, at an angle(i've provided an illustration as to how it would look). I'm just wondering will building control accept this? wouldn't it weaken the joists? Would be open to any suggestions thank you!

 Post subject: Cabinet blocking access to boiler
PostPosted: Thu Aug 09, 2018 8:34 pm 
Hi. Forgive me if this is a strange question. I had a new boiler fitted which they managed to slot into the existing kitchen cabinet. Unfortunately the front of the boiler can't be taken off because the bottom part of the cabinet is in the way. This is fine at the moment but if anything went wrong with the boiler they wouldn't be able to get into it to fix it. So my question is ...

 Post subject: Renovating stairs with external newels
PostPosted: Thu Aug 09, 2018 3:15 pm 
Hi,

I am renovating an old 1970s staircase. The kind which just has boards screwed onto the newels, with no conventional handrail and no base rail at all. I want to bring in spindles and a conventional handrail so that it meets regulations and also just looks better.

However, the newel posts are external to the stringer.
If looking at it from above, you would see the steps, then stringer and then the newel post ...

PostPosted: Fri Aug 03, 2018 7:11 am 
I need to fix a 3" block of wood parallel to the floor joist so I can screw floorboards down but what wood would I need to use and what size screws should I use. I was thinking of screwing 2 pieces of cls together but would this be strong enough.
