This is everything I’ll need to do the stairs: stair treads, risers, runners and trim pieces. Everything is laid out and properly slathered with polyurethane. Those 1×12 boards go up and down either side of the stairs and are a bit of a challenge as they need to fit in a snug space and they’re 13 feet long. Big and unwieldy and they need to be cut to length and be accurate within around 1/8 of an inch. This will be a magic trick if I can pull it off.
This is a trim piece. It’s part of the oak band that goes atop the wainscot in the bathroom. It needs to be tapered at 14 degrees for 7/32 of an inch, and have a 1/4 inch cut on its interior end. Without this little piece, a corner in the bathroom would look unfinished. When you’re doing custom trim work, little pieces like this come up all the time.
Part miter, part box end, part lap joint, fits together great and the square pins make it look like I did actual woodwork.
All the truly classy bathrooms have it.
Ever wonder what the underside of your cabinets look like? Now you know.
I filled three 39 gallon trash bags full of sawdust doing this.
Here’s a math problem I don’t want to do: what percentage of wood that I purchase actually ends up in the thing I’m making vs. the percentage that ends up as sawdust / firewood / scrap / trash / sits on my wood rack for decades doing nothing.
Where to put them until we’re ready to install is kind of an issue.
