Sorting this little mess out. Looks like the Telco crossed a line at the street.

Re: Post A Picture Of Your Current Job -- Part II


This is an oops from the client. He wanted me to do a bump out of the crown over the sink cabinet area because he would be putting tile up after I left from installing the kitchen. I did that for him. Applied a 7/16" strip of wood and put the crown on top of that leaving a small space under the crown for the molding to tuck if the tile guy chose to go that route.

The client went on vacation and a day later called to tell me he forgot to tell me that he was putting tile on the media wall too. And that I needed a bump out for the tile in the crown on that wall also.

Well, of course I cope my crown so it makes it a pain to remove a section without it affecting another run of crown. So I came up with a plan to circumvent removing the crown that was tucked under the other cope. The right side of the crown was the over cope (easily removed), and the left side was the under cope (trapped)

I took my measurements at the house and went to the shop to do the work on the crown. I happened to buy an extra piece and that's where it was. The space between the cabinet and the door trim is 45". So I coped both ends of a pc of 55" trim, tuned it in with my Dremel. I did a setup to determine the length I'd need to cut the outside miter at by mimicking the crown on the cabinet and the 7/16" board I was using to space the crown from the wall. Got the length, cut the miter. And then for the other cope, which is very skinny I setup the crown on the 7/16" board, made the mark and cut the miter. This left a 1/4" slice of crown with a miter on one side and a cope on the other, very delicate. Then I glued the two miters together, just TBII and about 2 minutes of clamping with my fingers.

Then I did a test and because the return is so skinny I couldn't just overlay it like I was hoping. I made a test pc and cut an angle on it finally coming up with about 35º that the mating part needed to be cut at along with removing a bit at the top of the crown to make it all work.

All this took about an hour.

Brought it to the house and made a mark on the crown using a laser to line things up.

This is the only pic I have of the original crown on the wall.



This wall


Made the cut, you can see the laser I used to line the cut with.


The crown I assembled at the shop worked out well, copes on both ends fit nice. A little caulk and it'll look perfect.

Re: Post A Picture Of Your Current Job -- Part II


Gonna be putting this pullout ironing board into a cabinet for a laundry room. Nice quality unit. But it did have a non-oiled issue with the 2 SOSS hinges, squeaked like a mouse being run over. And it's setup for a Euro style cabinet so I'll need to modify the stops they have setup, which I can do without much hassle. Other than that it's very sturdy and easy to operate.

Video was done pre-oiling the hinges.

To bad it's latex. It'll take forever to dry. Let it dry and cut it off with a razor. Sand smooth and try again.
