hello there Calvin - nice hammer you got there - ever hit anybody with it?

 

the shutters slide and the walnut and poplar came off the farm - the project did not start out so grandiose, I was just tired of exposed ragged drywall edges - "I'll build an extension jamb and picture frame some trim around it"

oh well, glad I wasn't paying a proffesional -

I did create a piece of archtectural molding...

 

with the set of planes I bought a year ago - 

so - the cost of that molding is well under $100/ft -

Clean shaving!

 

 

And noone of interest has been harmed with the 2 lb hammer.  A few tent stakes, a bit of persuasion on a wall I'm sure and oh yeah-couple dozen foreign spammers. 

Nothing serious.

Nice work.  A fella could almost believe that you know what you're doing.

Nah!  If he knew what he was doing he'd know it was foolish to start the project in the first place.  Stuff like that only gets done by people who don't realize how much they're getting into.

Holy Guacamole. All done (post #207573, reply #5 of 6)

Holy Guacamole.

All done with hand tools?

Nice work.

And $100 a foot for trim is a bargain!
