View Full Version : Filling a gap in the floor where a wall has been removed
27th Jan 2012, 11:50 AM
I have removed the tiles in the kitchen/dining rooms in my flat and underneath are the original floorboards with a couple of holes cut out of them where the walls once stood.
My question is what kind of timber is it that I need to replace the holes, and how do i replace the one which is going across the floorboards ?

The sort of thing you're hoping to do is fairly simple - just fiddly. Click on this link HERE (https://plus.google.com/b/102881815910702111451/photos/102881815910702111451/albums/5690602532325607393) to see a repair job similar to your own, which I've provided a few tips on how to effect this sort of repair.
Also, this page on my website HERE (http://www.clintfudgefloorsanding.com.au/Home/restoration-work-1/repairing-floor-boards) may help give you some inspiration.

Looks more like brushbox to me - a little too red for most tallowwood (although you can see wide variations in all timber).
