But it would be more helpful to place them in their own dedicated thread with an appropriate title. You might want to copy paste the images and info in their own thread(s) rather than tack it onto another thread. Even if you double post the same thing, having a "How-to" in it's own thread will be far more helpful than burying it. That way if there are any other info (like better methods for certain things or shortcuts on installing laminate) they could be added in the thread. Here I would not post anything on the Sikaflex dates. Here I would not post anything on how to install laminate without some of the "special" tools you used... among other things. David had been working with laminate professionally since he was 17 yo (now 58 yo) and ran two cabinet shops (one while in high school) in FL where all the cabinets were laminated, I have been working professionally with laminate since I was 19 yo (now 52). We might know a thing or two to make laminate installation easier. This is not the thread for it though.

And it's "DOWEL"

Re: Skoolie Conversions ---- a great group!

Hey Lucky --- Many thanks for taking the time to put this tutorial together. And I agree that it deserves to be a "sticky" that stays around forever. Maybe the Moddies can find a good place for it.

Great looking work BTW and thanks again.

X3 on the sticky. Nice job on the tutorial.

Your tool is a drywall t-square.

Yes, that's it! And thank you Lorna for correcting me on the dowels. My 12 hr workday yesterday left me lacking on concentration.

Re: Skoolie Conversions ---- a great group!

Beautiful work,
But how come there are no giant tufts of chow chow hair in all that glue? With our Newfs it has become the norm that there will always be a little bit of them in every project.

LOL, if you only knew! I just trim them off with the router! Those tumbleweeds (Chow Chow hair) roll up into every knook and corner. But they're nothing compaired to the "pine needle" hair from my Lab. Holy smoke. That breed sheds like a porcupine. Buddy was a rescue though. He came to the house with every rib showing. I took him in. Now he's my constant companion. Couldn't live without him.

Talking about free insulation. I have a rather large bag of it. Could easily make a pillow ---- it's soft and fluffy. By the way, I really love Newfs. What great dogs. I'm really glad you posted about them with your bus.
