Oak beading

The previous owners of our house didn’t draft proof key areas in the property, so ahead of the winter we’ve decided to apply beading in rooms where large gaps have formed between floorboards.

We have oak floorboards and skirting, and we managed to get a good deal online on clearance stock for 22mm oak beading from Ron Currie (they were very professional, the delivery was on time and the quality of the wood was excellent).

We have never laid beading before, so this was a definite first. Please watch this video to see how the project went.
