I can find sites doing the whole interior but not doing just the floor.. I've emailed a few (on Monday) and they can't be bothered to reply !!

They sell the ply, but I don't have the tools to cut it to shape...

Only need a Jigsaw, and possibly a circular saw. If you have the old one, it's even easier.

This should be in "Deal Requests".

Even if its rubber it will make a good template, and yes a jigsaw will be fine just make sure you get the right blade for the wood and get a couple of spares as its tempting to use a different type if it breaks/bluntens and take your time, and remember - measure twice cut once:thumbsup:

A jigsaw will do, but they aren't great for cutting long straight lines.

Depends on the user and technique:thumbsup:

I have one with a laser on it and its useless much easier to clamp a baton onto the work and use that as a guide to run the edge of the jigsaws plate along. Should be a little leeway anyway as i'd run a bead of silicon sealant around the edge.

I'm **** at woodwork, always have been ! I might get a circular saw from Argos, cut the ply and then take it back !!
