Throw back to fitting this pre finished x detail. Left it out for the painter only for the sake that it would have been crazy hard to paint it over shiplap. Got some crown molding pointers coming tmrw and thru the weekend so be on the look out.

Reinforcing miters. If you swipe,that baby piece is a 22.5 angle back to a 55. Ripped an 8ft board and slice in 2.5 in pieces,glue and staple with a pneumatic,easy stuff. I only do this on cabinet crown or preassemblies that get roughed up. I show lots of methods but just showing how i personally do things if something else works for ya, makes you money and you are satisfied with the end product keep doing that, and for the love of god share it!!! Lets see if we can turn the carpentry explore feed back to actual carpentry,not epoxy pours and staged pictures of tools. Hopefully that helps and stay tuned for more finish carpentry tips and pointers.

The magical clam clamps making lines disappear. Pricey ,yes, worth every penny, absolutely. With a well tuned miter saw,sharp blade and these clamps the process becomes pretty dummy proof for high quality durable miters. To state the obvious you wanna biscuit,dowel,domino glue and clamp. Would anyone be interested in some pointers you may not know about on keeping your saw accurate?

Was made aware of a post attacking ,myself, for recommending the collins cope foot(he was using it wrong, was cutting from topside) here i am using,a bulky d handle, underpowered, uncomfortable and just plain bad jigsaw yet i still manage to cope cleanly without sanding or a file afterwards. To recap cut on nested position to get the back cut right the first time, cut towards you and from the UNDERSIDE. Hopefully this helps someone somewhere,let me know if you guys want more vids like these and stay tuned for finish carpentry tips and pointers. Vid got .50 speed up original is close to a min.

Got asked a bunch on cutting these smaller miters accurately, if you swipe you can see i just use a combo square to take all the measurements and transfer to the actual cuts. Super accurate which counts for something because you dont want to be re trimming these smaller cuts,for safety reasons. Hopefully this helps someone and stick around for more finish carpentry tips and pointers . P.s the crown was just floating in the pic.

The valve was way off center from where i wanted to be so just hid it. This was last week ill take a vid tmrw since its already been sprayed on the easy solution i came up with. Anyhow let me know what you guys think and stay tuned for finish carpentry tips and pointers!!

Swipe to see the my micro trim jig. Nothing fancy doesnt have to be pretty but helps not launch micro cuts behind the saw and gives you a steady/safe zero clerance base. For micro returns i dont cut all the way, i leave a hair and just finish it off with my knife. Last pic is if you notice on the table how to tension up the collins clamps, adds a bit more pressure for really small pieces. Hope this helps someone somewhere ,let me know if youd like more post like these and stay tuned for more tips and pointers!!

As i get older i am finding the beauty in simplicity, even 5 years ago i would of probably went crazy on a fireplace design. I did record some vids on how i built it easily so ill have those up soon. But let me know what you guys think and ill have those how to vids along with tips and pointers soon.

If you swipe you can see how i pre assemble the recessed panels,just glue and miter clamps. I dont pin nail them for sake of saving my self the aggravation of getting a proud pin or a deflected one. Once they are dry even if they are snug i can wrestle them in there without the miter coming apart. Anyhow let me know if you guys got questions and ill be posting some videos on building and installing these newel post soon just gotta edit them.

HOW TO cut small pieces accurately? Glad you asked. Swipe over, my small gauge has indents in increments of a 1/4 of an inch starts with 1/2 inch up to inch and 1/2. Swipe i line up my blade with the gauge with what ever size you are cutting,mine was 3/4s. Swipe, i make a mark on the edge of gauge and last pic shows me lining up my crown with that mark which cut it exactly at 3/4s great for multiple repetitive cuts like the 30 i had to make for all these openings. Let me know what you guys think and stay tuned for more finish carpentry tips and pointers!!
