A door isn't wide enough for the trackmat layout :( i compared the trackmat to the size of our doors and i'm not sure about carrying a door from town to the top of the building i live in on the top floor :L I would rather try and get a baseboard with a proper frame and legs, I would say that would last longer especially if i have to move again in future due to living in rented accomodation, though I hope to be in this flat for a while after the job of getting moved in :P

To be honest if you're on a budget, then I think a pre-made board is out of the question. You're going to have to jump into the deep end I'm afraid, but people here will help. I will certainly try. What size is the Trakmat, 6x4?. I PM'd you another place you might try posting on. I know there are a couple of folks down that general direction that might have more info on the club.

+ 1 to what Alan says. With a 9mm ply top and 2" x 1" softwood frame, at English prices maybe 15-20 quid - plus a few screws!
