Pulling back from the close up of the lock set, these 8 foot French doors really shine with the sidelights. Man, what a way to enter a home.

This weekend I had to replace a rotted threshold in the doorway to my basement. Here's a short video. In the #sundayfunday of me free hand cutting the horns that wrap the trim on my @dewalttough flexvolt table saw.

Have a great Sunday everyone!

Happy #friday everyone. Here is a #tip for coping mouldings that aren't sprung. That is to say, 3/4" stock that lays flat against the wall, with a profile that is relatively narrow compared to crown mouldings that project out into the ceiling as well.

This method of coping on a table saw is finished with files and rasps and is actually very safe to perform. As with any power tool, care should be taken with your hands and proximity to spinning or oscillating or reciprocating blades.

When coping on a table saw with this method there is very little chance of chatter or kickback due to all waste material being pulled down from the profile and the back of the piece laying over solid support.

Please feel free to ask any questions or request clarification.

I don't know about you guys, but I'm a sucker for stainless cable railing systems. They are clean, tight, sleek and modern.

I love this design win the exterior mounted posts and the slight bow to the rise of cables.

I didn't happen to install this door and I played no part in the design, although I wish I had. This is another example of the impeccable care my employer @carpentermacneille takes to get things right for the client.

What I did do here was to install the very high quality @rockymountainhardware entry door lock sets. Not your average barrel lock, this set with all its intricate design is a full cassette style lock with a latch to lever conversion. Super fun.

I love the #mahogany doors as well.

A few years back a when I was working with @covenant_llc a client asked me to create a Chinese Chippendale look on the balustrade for this small porch, overhanging roof and duel staircases I had built. She was looking to find something to match up with the panels on the entry door.

With no drawings and a few pictures from @pinterest and @houzz I was given free reign to come up with a design.

This was the result. Milled 1 3/8 red cedar baluster stock under 2x6 red cedar top rail scribed to the 8" rounded columns up top and box newels to finish out the bottom. Everything was custom milled on sight.

I had to opportunity to install this gorgeous hardware on @carpentermacneille custom made cabinetry. @rockymountainhardware is cream of the crop for elegant, tasteful and well made products. Check them out.

Also @grandbanksbp supplied the hardware. They are a great lumber head and hardware dealer in the Boston area with wonderful attention to client need and top notch materials.

I love the black walnut.

#monday tip. Everyone who has installed a pull down attic stair knows that the finish with the visible carriage bolts and flimsy luan is pretty ugly. In a garage or a dark hallway it may not be an issue. But, what if the access is smack in the middle of the living room?

I took 1/2" birch plywood and relieved the material around the carriage bolts so that it would sit flush with the trim casing. Combined with an attractive reveal the opening is transformed into something subtle and clean.

An important note: to do this you need to back bevel the casing on the hinge side so that the new plywood can pass cleanly as the door is opened.

It had been a while since I used this #dewalt right angle attachment. I figured I could use it to fasten my guard rail from the inside of the box newels and eliminate any visible fasteners on the project. Once again it came through with flying colors.

Everyone should own one of these. Ultra handy and super affordable.

Happy #saturday everyone. Here is an idea for making sure the flat stock of your baseboard detail stays tight on inside corners that may or may not be perfect.

With a setup for the entire job, you can quickly dado and rabbet all or your pieces at rough lengths ahead of time to insure a snug joint.

Full disclosure, this is not something I've personally tried. Rather, I saw this on a job site visit last year and the owner or the trim company was very positive on its effectiveness and its value.

What do you think of this as a potential way to go?

Make it plumb and make it true.

The thing that always gets me is when someone says "it's just framing". Someone has to come in and put finish work on that framing. It's never just framing.

Check @carpentry_bymar and his latest post installing paneling on an outside corner. He'd be cursing up a storm if the framing were jacked up because he'd have to fix it to get the results he demands of himself.

Ask @gosselinkfinecarpentry about the framing at the #manhattanbeachproject ams how that affects his mood.

Take pride in doing excellent and thorough work no matter what phase you are in. Either you or someone else will be chasing your mistakes the rest of the project, so focus and get it right. Happy #friday

This has been a very busy week with multiple job sites. The past couple days I've spent my time demoing horsehair plaster and lathe along with some old framing to build out a closet for laundry machines, granite and shelving. Unglamorous, dirty and dusty so I haven't posted about it.

Today I framed in the new partitions and door opening. A small space like the one I am in can be a challenge. Walls out of plumb, non square space etc.

Utilizing a laser can greatly assist in setting things in order. From planing to squaring to plumbing to leveling. They are easy to use and quite accurate.

If you haven't, you should consider making the investment.
