Trouble with architrave

Postby Honest-Sam » Wed Nov 05, 2008 3:51 pm

Hi there,

We're replacing the architraving around our doors and have hit a problem...

Two of our doors on on right angles to each other and there isn't enough room between the doors to run two strips of architrave down the sides - any suggestions on how to cut & fix the wood?

usually a piece of quadrant does the trick in place of the architrave. available at any timber merchants or proprietary store.

just a length of timber that is quarter-circle in cross section.
