I have a ton of respect for guys and gals doing work on the work on their own home,but dont attend those work shops,just hang around instagram a bit, thousands of great carpenters eager to teach! Not gonna post it on stories but ill doing a how-to on arching casing for an arched window from figuring the arch to fabricating it,i am excited and hopefully you guys stick around for that. P.s top pic was never caulked,i just glued and clamped fresh off the saw

Posted this about a year and half ago,For complex profiles. Essentially replaces file, things to note when you attach anything to profile you are making it thicker ,we dont want that, so you gotta sand it down a bit ,if you got the primed stuff sanding the primer off should do. •••Next make sure the sanding pad is warm leave it in the sun or heat up a bit with a lighter this facilitates contouring the pad around the profile with a putty knife (not easy when its not warm) make sure its very tight againts profile. Finally just sand at a back angle and make sure its straight. •••Seems like alot but this takes minutes to make and will deliver you clean,tight fitting copes dor these harder profiles. Stay tuned for more finish carpentry tips and pointers

Reinforcing miters. If you swipe,that baby piece is a 22.5 angle back to a 55. Ripped an 8ft board and slice in 2.5 in pieces,glue and staple with a pneumatic,easy stuff. I only do this on cabinet crown or preassemblies that get roughed up. I show lots of methods but just showing how i personally do things if something else works for ya, makes you money and you are satisfied with the end product keep doing that, and for the love of god share it!!! Lets see if we can turn the carpentry explore feed back to actual carpentry,not epoxy pours and staged pictures of tools. Hopefully that helps and stay tuned for more finish carpentry tips and pointers.
