One Down One To Go


Just finished this one up last week. I did all the base, casings, and odds and ends. My boss hung doors and set cabinets. Nothing complex or crazy but enough for me to get experience on.

Worth being proud of.
Looks good.
Nice that the framing allowed for a full width casing along that doorway

How old are you?

Your work looks clean.

Work looks great. Looks super dated to me though. Must be regional.

You can never go wrong with an 80's condo look. :grin:

Nice work though. We can only do what the customer wants. I kind of always liked that look myself.

Your bosses door reveals aren't looking too good but it looks like your trim career is off to a good start.

We are celebrating that someone is excited about getting started with a new skill. Now say you are sorry.

The design is done by the same guy on all our houses and they're all the same old thing inside and out. It's always the same style and color from him down to the doorknobs are the same.

No, we laugh at you because of your piss poor attitude and overinflated sense of accomplishment. Nobody said you were a bad carpenter. Nobody said you do bad work.

Your English is a grammatical catastrophe. What's your point?
