A little window trim...
« on: August 25, 2019, 09:18 PM »
To start with I hate drywall window returns....One before the new windows and trim.

One room, 8 windows of the 39(?) I did. Fabricated and sprayed the trim in the shop.

These were the most fun due to getting them mated up in the corner---jack miters are your friend.

Parallax is your enemy...

Nice improvement on the before for sure!

Are you in Colorado full-time now Tom?

I'm sure there is plenty of work there for your talents.

Thanks for sharing.

Those look incredible. Are you a one man band now? My brother in law is in Denver, we just visited in June. There's a lot of talent in that area between Marc Spagnuolo, Mike Farrington, and now you.

@tjbnwi , I have had the pleasure and honor of meeting you and also reading your posts here and elsewhere for years.  Your career history, your dedication to whatever you are doing, and your dedication to your family are mind-boggling to me in the most positive way.

I am glad to read that you and your wife will soon not be separated by too many miles.  You are one of a kind.

For the first time in my careers I'm not a one man band. I have one great employee, he is the son of a Ed Michnick, who is a member here.

Great job Tom,

I love those tight miters and the way the moulding makes the windows pop.

 About time you decided to move there full time.

Now ya get the joy of fixing your house up for sale moving and fixing the new house up to move into.

Still got to get out to visit you in Colorado.

One of these days huh?

Fantastic work as always. I like that the trim not only brightened the room but improved the season as well.  [wink]

Lol - amazing what some white paint can do to get some leaves on the trees!

Great improvement, coincidentally we are currently doing something very similar for an American lady, who has a beautiful house over here close to Richmond Park.

We are installing new Georgian style windows and casement doors, along with liners, grounds and architraves, and also covering the existing plaster reveals of the existing windows, with liners and architrave.
It adds so much character  [thumbs up]

@tjbnwi

I know this is odd but I've appreciated your posts here on the FOG and on other forums, literally for years.

I'm a journeyman carpenter and when I see advice or suggestions from you, I take them seriously, as you're a wealth of knowledge. Despite not having any personal interaction.

Been meaning for a while to start a thread to say that, but I thought that this was a good opportunity. Tlso anyway, thanks Tom!

You should write Fine Homebuilding :o

Tom, - Ultimately Arnie Palmer was just a guy with a golfball and a club . . .

Seriously, while your woodworking methods and advice are amply documented in countless threads on the FOG, I would add something not so apparent: you do an exceptional job of planning your work, material yield, cost, the works. Your craftsmanship is matched by the value you deliver to your customers.

Amid all of that you continue to make time to provide help and advice to anyone who asks - including TSO. Our Parallel Guide would not be the robust product it has become without your generous help in BETA testing. A great inspiration for us to "pay it forward"

thank you Tom for being the quality person you are!

Thanks Hans. I can’t say enough good things about your contributions.
