    Thanks for the video, appreciate it we did it the same way as per your guidance to cut the border strips and it’s really amazing.

    I did an update on some of the A.I. creations I made. Including one of my "Dr Jake’s Lab" in "Magic Picture" format.

    I’ve never needed a mitre box but now have a strange urge to go to B&Q to get one. 😃

    Oh Jesssssus! Seriously? You must be struggling to find new topics. BTW, it’s called “base shoe” in the USA.

    Thanks for this! I’ve been looking for a clear and straightforward explanation and I’ve finally found it. Great stuff.

    Johnson trade plaster paint is amazing if you’re looking for a decent white

    Good job. Now it gets tricky when angles are not 90degree. Having to compensate on a power saw when max angle is just more than 45 degrees. It takes a few test cuts. Multiply that by every angle you need cutting, it makes a easy job into a right mess about.

    This isn’t the best way

    May I suggest buying a mitre saw and not a box, There is a cheep blue hand saw in a frame that you can buy from "market type shops" but the angle is adjustable, the unit does have to be screwed down but lets say you have a garage with just a freezer and a heater in it a work bench will make life soooooo!! much easier !!!! The cheep hand saw frame thing has smaller (fine) teeth and cuts cleaner and has the advantage that an English 90′ corner is somewhere near 90′ and adjustable. Mix and match your wood strips BUT when you cut an iny you get a pre cut outy. AND lashing of no nails but only beading to skirting, remember that the central heating pipes under the floor will only ever leak the day after you have nailed that lot down. Oh yes Do You Own a nail gun yet??? they are the future !! You have to own one…….I will say don’t have the wife stand behind you saying "yes darling I know your getting tired but you have done a good job for the last 15 hours just finish the last 4 fence panels before dark" and at that point the nail gun goes through your finger and she passes out. So my DIY suggestions to you (having renovated a couple of houses) is no nails paste and a nail gun! and a bench in the garage !! Great Video Thank You !

    you have done a great job there! i remember when i did our beading years ago and had a mitre box, my brain nearly exploded when i just couldn’t "get" it in regards to all the inner and outer corners i had to do, got there in the end though..
