Hi All,

Attached is a picture showing the space for the end of row laminate plank and the stair post with two returns. I've undercut the post by about 20mm to hide the laminate under but cannot figure out how to cut the plank.

Any help would be really appreciated.

Cheers
Daz

Easy answer would be to use PVA glue on the joints for this. Similar to

Use a scribe, a pencil and a length of scrap wood will do. A hand saw cuts on the down stroke so no need to transfer the markings underneath.

If unsure about accuracy do a/several test cuts on spare laminate board first, you can use that as a template.

Thanks for the replies. I've drawn a sketch (not to scale) of how this plank should look but am unsure, even if I manage to make it, how I'd physically get it in! What do you guys think?

If you have undercut then why is it not a simple right angle to go under? Perhaps you should undercut a bit more?

You need to lay that row right to left, starting with the section under the post.

If it were me (just a DIYer), I would do it with two boards joining at the post (cut a piece to start the row accordingly)

Two staircases in one home? Unlikely.
Fair point, I guess I should have said "similar issue" rather than "same issue".... Anyway, I decide on the marble for my flooring anyway :)
