Laminate Beading and Cutting Curves around Stair Treads?


Postby Jimcub » Sat Nov 07, 2015 2:15 pm

I have laid laminate flooring and am ok with straight and angled bends, one thing that I find difficult is around the bottom stair tread.
Is there a way I can curve the trim to follow the tread, if not how is this done as it must happen in 100's of homes each year.

cut V grooves in the back of the trim every 20mm and at half the depth of the trim it should bend enough for you to pin it in place
