Ok, new construction.
Wood windows and trim to be stain finished.
1. Do you / Can you / should you, finish the windows while installed, finish trim on racks then cut and install.
2 Do you / Can you / Should you, install trim and finish all at once.
Why one of the other?
I am sure one reason is that "that is the way it is always done" . Ok that one is out of the why, but ...
I would guess one reason is that the trim carpenter is not the finisher and therefore, one job "needs" to be done before the other so the finisher can come in and finish. I will be doing both takes so that is not my issue.
It seems like a pretty nice deal to paint your walls and then install finished trim so there is no cutting in when painting.
I suppose cutting finished trim could result in some tearout and thus need touch up and of course there is the filling of nails holes (but those wax pencils work pretty nicely)
So what are teh pros and cons and thoughts of those in teh buz?
Thank you as always
