Rez wrote: a couple of floorboards are starting to crack in my bedroom (restored original ones in victorian house) - Is it a ballache getting boards (only need one or two) to fit or am I best lifting it and trying to repair the cracks?

When I was looking a while back I struggled either to find the size of board I needed (ours are 25mm deep tongue and groove) or someone who would sell in small numbers. An architectural salvage place is probably your best bet although sometimes they want to sell and entire floor's worth of boards in one lot.

Do you know if they're square-edged or tongue and groove? Tongue and groove is more of a pain to remove. Depending on how bad the cracks are you may be able to fix them with wood glue or filler without removing the boards.

You're not buying it for the spec are you? Pound for pound overpriced, but you're buying it for the fact it doesn't look like a tv.
