    Never heard of the company but you can't go wrong at that price.

    I would take out the quadrant moulding, and get a piece of white UPVC about 25mm wider than the gap and glue (and pin it if necessary) to the side of the robe. It would then look like a cover mould. If the floor or wall was out of plumb, you could adjust it until it was tight to the wall. Try Wickes as they have some nice pieces of UPVC with one edge rounded.

    Aesthetically the above suggestion would stick out like a sore thumb. :eek:

    Caulk and more caulk if gap big

    Stuff with newspaper if needed to stop caulk falling through

    Timber fillet if really needed

    Paint in as wall colour

    Collect pension, put teeth in sterident, put carving knife away, have a sherry, stroke the cat, job done :p

    Actually, quality sherry has been gaining popularity over the last few years

    Not the mass produced, sickly sweet Bristol Cream and Croft Original type stuff but dry, fine Manzanilla Sherries. Served well chilled, in a nice thin rimmed glass, drink like a good wine or used in cocktails

    Even the supermarkets have a much better range now than years ago, but look at the upper range - even so, £9-£15 quid will get you a decent enough bottle

    I was in Portugal over the new year and whislt drinking anything alcoholic :) I necked a few Vermouths (rouge) and this took me back to the early 80s and Cinzanno

    Was a nice long drink with loads of ice, citrus chunks and a splash of tonic or lemonade, even bought a couple bottles back home as it’s a great drink

    So there you go, good to reminisce ..... as for leccie carving knife ......... just Nahhhhhhhhhhhhhh Never :eek:

    Not as popular though as craft Gins, sales have gone through the roof. Think Urban Bumpkin may sink a few when he's finished this install! :D
