dickin' around -
and a window that has lacked trim for the last 30 years is done - (except for a few very small details I'm sure I'll get around to...)
Hinged or sliding panels?
What's the wood and where was it cut?
A Great Place for Information, Comraderie, and a Sucker Punch.
Remodeling Contractor just outside the Glass City.
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 -
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.
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.
Of all the preposterous assumptions of humanity over humanity, nothing exceeds most of the criticisms made on the habits of the poor by the well-housed, well-warmed, and well-fed. --Herman Melville
All done with hand tools?
And $100 a foot for trim is a bargain!
