hi david..my house has numerous nails driven in at an angle that would
blunt your saw or anything that would normally cut through wood..is there
any other way..im looking at a metal blade that would cut through nails too
..if so can you recommend anything ?? thank you sean

Best not cut all the chassis as it will eventually fall leaving a door gap

nah!,it's a great wee tool and so easy to use,must be one on you tube

Looks to me like there was way to much space there. Using a slimmer blade
saw or a bosch oscillating saw will give a much tighter and better looking

Автор bobdabuildaman (1 год)
Just be wary of nails from the footplate into the frame as is often present
in new build houses with chipboard floating floors. These can really bugger
up your saw and is where a multitool with a metal cutting blade is useful.

Автор Louisa Mosi (1 год)
Your the best David. I wish I saw this earlier. Our trades man did a shoddy
cut on the door frame to lay floor tiles in the hallway. If you look
closely at the door frame at the bottom you can see the unrefined cut wood
and the space inbetween was covered with chalk. A mess! How do I tidy this.
Help please.

Автор mmid2 (2 года)

Hi, it was a good point. Unfortunately, I'm not very good in front of the

If you want to be lazy you can buy a dremel multi tool like I did. It's a
bit pricey but you can find cheaper versons for around $30 that work just
as good.

Similar to the previous comments, this was an exciting tutorial and I'm
looking forward in applying your techniques. Hopefully, I won't need to
replace the door frame!

i don't kno why people allays have something to say about videos if i don't
know how to do something youtube can help but when i see all the comments
is like i use a chainsaw well im using a saw i don't think it matters as
long as you know what you doing and at the end of the day the customer says
thanks great job that's all it matters great job and thaks for the video im
sure someone will comment on my post

Автор David White (3 года)
@ohdrdrdr Hi, yes there was a door but it was removed and shortened
earlier. There wasn't a door bar on this door as I was taking the flooring
straight through into the hall area. I will be covering door bars in
another tutorial. Thanks for watching.

Автор David White (1 год)
Yes, it can still be done - though how easy depends on the brand of
laminate, some joint systems are more flexible than others. You might fine
you need to make a dummy run with the piece you are fitting to see what
works best for you.

Автор mitch verkuyl (2 года)
i use to use a small stanely pulll saw. it worked great till another
carpenter on my job had a multi tool. the only function i use it for the
oscillation chisel. i can see most home owners struggling to use hand saw
to cut the jamb and casing. for a less then a hundred bucks i would
strongly suggest going and getting one. it will cut this perfect in less
then 30 seconds. and trust me thats only the start to what else it can cut.
it pays for its self the FIRST time.

Автор David White (1 год)
I don't see why you can't fit tiles this way...I think the amount of space
you leave for adhesive will just be down to trial and error. I would be
tempted to fit a piece of tile to a piece of board and then measure the
thickness of the tile and adhesive together to give you an accurate
starting point. As for clearance, i think the closer you can get the tile
to the frame - the better it will look. Luckily with a tile you don't need
to allow for expansion.

Автор Neil Grant (2 года)
Thanks very much for this, very useful and I'm going to give it a go when I
lay my laminate floor in the hallway. One question though: if the laminate
floor is to stop at the door threshold, is there anyway to undercut just
the laminate floor side of the door, or do I have to cut the lot off?
Thanks in advance.

Автор Isaac Benjamin (3 года)
@flawlessflooringuk I did try it and it came out perfect. thanks again for
that simple trick. :)

Автор trassca (1 год)
One thing I would urge people to consider before cutting into their door
frames, is will the new floor be permanent or be ripped out after a few
years and replaced by a thinner material. I've worked in kitchens which had
laminate flooring with felt underlay (total thickness about 15mm) replaced
with 3mm lino, leaving very big gaps. The jambs can be easily patched in,
but not so easy with lovely old ornate Victorian architraves. The same goes
with the new craze for having sanded floors

Автор Neil Grant (2 года)
It did help - I had to chisel a few bits of wood out but it did work out,

Автор David White (3 года)
@loganwolfpack Thanks. Have you tried it for yourself yet and how did you
get on?

Автор David White (1 год)
Louisa..If you click on the link to my website from the tutorial and send
me your email address via my contacts page, ill get right back to
you....I'd just rather not post my direct details on here for obvious

Автор Isaac Benjamin (3 года)
wow thanks alot, very easy and very simple explaination. no mumbo jumbo
just straight to the point. thank you sir.

Автор David White (1 год)
Hi. The undercut technique will work with pretty much anything. As
mentioned earlier though, you may just have to practice with a piece first
to see what the board will allow you to do.... You might find clicking the
board into place to one side is helpful and then just tap it under the door
frame using a hammer and block (never hit the edge of the board directly -
you'll just destroy it). Or sometimes you can remove part of the click
joint if it helps...then compensate with a spot of glue.

Автор Carl Jones (3 года)
That was brilliant ! ! Gonna give that a go. Made a right hash of our
hallway. How would you go upto the stairs in a hallway the bottom step?
(Stairs carpeted)

Автор David White (2 года)
Yes. Simply repeat the process in the tutorial using your laminate flooring
to determine the height of the cut and just saw half way through the door
frame rather than all the way around. It's hard to see on the video but cut
up to the door stop. This is the piece of timber around the frame that the
door closes against and then just slide your flooring into position as
demonstrated. Hope this helps.

Автор joeshaft (2 года)
great job! get some more videos done. clear and simple advice that
obviously works

Автор David White (2 года)
Thank you for your comments. I tend to agree. I have met plenty of
tradesmen over the years who have a van full of great tools and absolutely
no idea how to use them. I use a hand saw because, in my opinion, of all
the tools I've used it gives a great cut, it's easy to use and I am
confident i will get the result I need. Oh and it's cheap to buy. Keep
watching. David

Автор michael newton (1 год)
Does this still work with laminate flooring that has to be tilted at a 45
degree angle to fix together? Great video by the way!

Автор David White (1 год)
Ha... thanks Louisa... To be honest I don't know if it can be rectified
retrospectively - it's actually easier to the job well to start with. If
you want to e-mail me a photo or two i might be able to make some
suggestion on how to tidy it up.

Автор David White (1 год)
I agree. However, I'm trying to demonstrate that a professional finish can
be obtained without spending a fortune on power tools - just using the
tools that most people will have around the house. Of course, if you want a
super tight fit, it is possible to follow the tutorial but make your saw
cut without the underlay in place. However, the purpose of the undercut is
to maximise the space for expansion and the tighter the fit the less room
for manoeuvre there will be.

Автор David White (2 года)
Hi, yes, you are absolutely right. However the door frame in this property
is fixed directly into the stud work and will not drop. I think before
making an under-cut you need to assess each door on its own merit and cut
accordingly. In some of the older properties around Scotland I only take
out a third of the frame to ensure the door's weight is being carried but
then they are much larger and heavier doors, but thanks for raising your
