In too many houses, the trimwork--door and window casings, baseboard and crown moldings -- is an afterthought, rushed along by builders ready to move out or owners anxious to move in. But finish carpenter Craig Savage thinks that the most visible parts of your house -- the details that you and everyone else see every day -- should get the attention they deserve.
In this tape, designed for pros and home owners alike, Savage guides you step by step as he trims out parts of a house and shares his job-site savvy and secrets. You'll learn to mate pieces of trim precisely, negotiate unsquare openings and seat moldings solidly against bumpy walls and ceilings.
Savage starts with the basics. With the camera beside him and close up the whole way, he demonstrates how you can accurately cut the three basic joints: the butt, miter and cope. You'll also learn how to:
- extend window and door jambs
- fit casing around doors and windows
- scribe-fit baseboard along a wall
- cope crown molding so it stays tight
Page numbers on the screen refer to Savage's book, Trim Carpentry Techniques, where you'll find a full discussion of the techniques shown here, Craig Savage is a general contractor in Palm Desert, California. He is a regular contributor to Fine Homebuilding magazine.
