Painters on the second floor


My "workshop"


Random


My sharpening stones

HF four sided diamond stone, 200/300/400/600 grit, DMT 1200 grit diamond stone and a Larson honing guide.



Also used the belt sander with 120 grit to flatten out some REALLY bad "field chisels"

Re: Collection Of Random Photos From The Job Site.


Cased these two doors today, but the guy who hung them left the jambs all bowed.


I wish I got a shot of the otherside there was atleast a 1/4" bow. The Jambs were fastened and finish painted already. I used some end grain spanish cedar shims I made on the miter saw.

I set the miter saw a 5 degrees, made a cut, flipped the board and then made another cut making for some fat triangle shims. Pounded them in with a hammer pushing the jamb free of the foam and deck screws holding the jamb in the wrong place. Once I got the jamb where I needed, I just him the shim with my hammer breaking it off flush.







Sometime so simple, saves so much time, yet no one bothered to teach me that. I bumped into making end grain shims in a YouTube video I was watching. So much knowledge is being lost...

EDIT: and these shims are strong enough to "cut" their way through the foam without breaking.

Re: Collection Of Random Photos From The Job Site.


Lou bought the little 7 1/4" Craftsman slider so I could carry it around and do shoe molding.





Here is how I do shoe


Decent fitting miters...



Caulk the ends


Spooge Out


Wipe with Rag.

Done and on to the next.

Faster then coping and better result IMO. If the shoe ever moves, which I doubt a molding that small will move much, the caulk will just stretch with it hiding the movement. I got this idea from some beadboard paneling I have in my home. I installed it during the spring, caulked the joints with DAP DynaFlex230, and every summer I watch the joints "Close"(swell) causing a small bump where it pinches the caulk, and during the winter, the baseboard heat drys it out real well, shrinking the paneling and causing the joint to "open", but the caulk stretchs with it and no dark joint appears...

I have been doing the same thing on cope joints in crown and base....time will tell if my idea was good or not.

I am not a huge fan of cutting on the flat, I much rather have my trim nested, so I personally own a Makita LS1016 (my third attempt at getting one and this is one is a keeper...finally) and the Bosch Axial Glide. If I where to get a small slider, I would take a good hard look at the 7 1/2" Makita slider....its ALOT of money but if cutting on the flat is your thing, it might be the way to go.


Altho, since being hired full time as an employee, I bought the Makita more so I could keep the Bosch at home....there is no reason to get my nice tools beat up. Not that the Makita is a bad saw, its just $300 cheaper then the Bosch, and easier to move around.

Most of the post wraps are made up a variaty of exterior grade materials. The first "wrap" that formed the 5x5" square body was made of 1/2" MDO, then Western Red Ceder or Cypress was used to create the applied stiles and rails. Azek was used for the base, base cap and shoe mold. The shoe was simply some 1/2" Azek I ripped down to 1" and put a 3/8" round over on. Pine was used for the 3/8" nose and cove.
