wood

The dining room project is starting to come together. I hadn't counted before, but there are about 72 pieces of wood trim to prep and install (base, base cap, shoe, casing, headers, lintel, crown).

Might be overkill, but here's an example of the level of detail of the work I'm doing:


This piece goes under the windowsill. It's just a piece of the casing that runs up the sides of the windows and door, but flipped so the thick edge butts up against the bottom of the sill. I mitered some side pieces for a more finished look than just straight-cut ends.

Shots of one window, before and after casing install:


18 pieces up, 54 to go.
