Here what I've been doing


I was dead set on doing a built up style trim here, purchased all the material,
On site ready to go.

Some how it evolved to this, and the style kept developing along the way.

End result,

Looks Good!

I have an extra jig saw I’m not using; do you want me to send it to you?:w00t:
I thought you might like my jig saw,
Its all I got, and its the biggest POC that was ever made,
But when I need it, its there :sad:

So you rounded over the edge and coped the sides over the full length head?

I made some trim to match an old bricker from 1877 that had a full 1" round over that was done like that and some had the head wrap to the sides.

You need a taller/wider apron.

To make it really stand out, run a cool old style casing along the outside of the casing you have now.
You could also add a strapping/band around the whole outside of it. You could do it to the apron but, sometimes it gets too busy.

At least put a wider apron and stop buying lumber that has a bar code on it.

Nice work though.

Now you're just using big pieces of wood again. Where's the build up?
:blink:









Or did you mean that all of this was building up to something else? :w00t:

No,
I meant it was initially going to be a 3 piece build up, but as I progress ideas changed.

And the end result is what you see, simple, and sleak :shifty:

Trust me Spruce, if I could speak a foreign language to you, I would. :w00t:

If I read that right, thats kind of what I had intended, but every time I made a cut, or changed router bits, for examples. Ideas changed.

Its funny how other peoples taste, changes the turn out of a project.

:laughing:

Honestly if I really knew of a good place that wasn't way, way, out of my way.

I would.

Around here, all the good ol boy lumber yards I knew of, are gone. :sad:

And whats left is so overly priced to start with, old materials, etc...
I can't stand to take the hit.

I got this stuff on sale @ Menards, FYI

Nice work though.
Thanks, ^^^^^^

As for the jig saw......

I know your answer, throw it over a bridge :blink:

Ha Ha, and you thought you was in need of a jigsaw :laughing:

I bet you feel fortunate now,...:w00t:

Did I detect a footprint between the jigsaw and the sander?
I still don't know what the point is.
Yeah, no harm no foul, its just screwed to the horses, isn't project material,
Its my work bench. :thumbsup:

Point, no point, just sharing what I'm working on right now.

I'm sorry its not a million dollar mansion, I still enjoy what I'm doing.

I think you are doing a nice job....... In spite of your jig saw and buz box sander. :laughing:

I like the clamps all nice and new.:thumbsup:

Tell me if I'm wrong, you can replace the 2x4's on those ponies right?:whistling

Larger apron is the way to go. You are a bit top heavy.

Nice work though and I love that you love it.:notworthy

I definetly need to mark it off the list.
Considering they have been on there since around '04
I figure I got my moneys worth out of them. :laughing:

Going 2x6 next time, a little bigger top. :thumbsup:
