So between Christmass and the new year we had the wifes son come in who is a carpenter and general builder.
In fact one of the team that is doing our major renovations.
I was hoping to do this job myself but as he has all the tools it seemed easier for him to do it.
Let it not be said builders are a tidy group least not this one.
Every day I have spent cleaning up after him because I am a fussy git.
His workmanship has been a joy for me to see.
And though he had a few hicups with differing thickness of plaster he kept on......he hates gaps.
Solid oak skirting went down before oak architrave because I am having trouble finding the right one for the right price Ogee.
Some companies only seem to sell it for one side of the door !!!! :scratch:
Some charge as much for one side as both.
I think I have found a company near Keighly now
Oak doors are on upstairs and with all furniture.
If nothing else upstairs will be done

Oak? Keighley? British Hardwoods, perchance?

I love working with materials like oak even though I end up spending a lot of time honing tools and it makes your tools go black

They are a fair distance off from us.

Have you got any small joinery shops near you, check Yell.com. You may be able to get a batch run through as a bespoke job. If they have the usual planer thicknesser and a spindle moulder it is not too bad a job to run. Also a small shop can use up a load of oak offcuts on a job like this.

Just an idea.
