    wasnt sure which forum to post this, so here goes. i am fitting some wardrobes and they are going to have an infill across the top and down one side so it all looks like one piece. is there any way of scribing or marking the infills so that it is a good fit or is it just a case of measuring it at different places and then joining lines up and then cutting. any advise(as long as its clean) gratefully received.

    Within 5-6mm! I could be more accurate than that with a chainsaw. If its done properly you wont need dec fill.

    So boys how do you adjust a 20mm thick infill panel to fit a wall which is dead vertical but the edge you are meeting varies 5-6mm from front to back at various points along it's length.?

    I'd scribe it! I very rarely use decorators filler as I dont need to cover up bodges... You do though!

    Bloody right I didn't! Try describing what you mean in English... Maybe you meant the infill needs to be bevel cut?

    Good, now you are reading the post correctly, so how do you deal with a bevel cut that varies the entire length of the infill panel and runs back to front and visa versa.

    Hold in position.
    Scribe.
    Cut to line marked (Undercutting by the amount required).

    I always put a slight bevel/undercut on infills, this ensures they fit first time 99.9 percent of the time.

    Never come across any wall/object that runs in and out by 5-6mm over 20mm. If I ever do I'll be able to scribe, cut and fix it in place no problem.

    Got a photo of a tall infill I had to scribe into brickwork in a very old house. Took me ages to mark and cut. I'll try and put it on photobox and post the link here, (Just to prove that when it comes to scribing I'm the daddy!)
