I have just had a new fireplace installed. When the skirting was put in I had my carpenter cut me 2 pieces in preparation for the fireplace. I would love to improve my wood skills so a small project like this seems perfect (I have 2 fireplaces)
Should I just measure all the different lengths and try and draw it onto the skirting or should i scribe it on? I am unsure how would I scribe something onto a piece of wood that cannot be shortened on the left afterwards... Can you please explain?
What saw would you use to make the mains cuts? (I have a jigsaw, will that do?)
What saw would you use to cut around the gas pipe? would you make this a circle? a drill bit perhaps? how would i drill on the edge of a piece of wood without making a mess?
I assume I would use wood glue for the mitre cut, but What glue would you use to fix the skirting to the wall?
Thanks so much for your help!
