I may have taken on dad’s admonishments to “measure twice and cut once” and “make sure it is square” at the expense of taking into account my granpa’s DIY skillset.
It seems my floors are pretty square but the actual house they are to sit in, is not actually square.
Yes. I know. You can stop laughing now.
It seems the house is 3mm wider on one side than the other.
So all those floors I sweated over while sawing now actually need to be 3mm wide at one point. Ooopsie.
It would have paid me to draw his floor plan as a template and mark everything out, rather than measuring and drawing it exactly. One of the probs in dealing with an existing design rather than making something from scratch.
So having cut down all my floors, I now need to add some dowel (1mm x 9mm) to one side and plane it at an angle…yipppeee!
