How about that scribe? Its Been a long time coming giving my good friend aaron @aaronthomasaquinas a shout.

He shares alot of finish and rough carpentry info on his page that is not only helpful but enjoyable to read. This isnt to increase his followers,but for your guys benefit. So go give his page a look you'll be bound to learn a thing or two! @aaronthomasaquinas #cope #carpentry #scribe #carpenter #likeaglove #finesse #baseboard #skirting #homeimprovement #stone #wood #oddlysatisfying #construction

Hidden compartment to access the attic. The wheels sit stepped down so when it rolls forward it actually goes up. That section is off the floor slightly just for future movement and what not. Let me know what you guys think, ill also do a post on how it locks and how it works. Anyhow thank you for 150k followers and stay tuned for finish carpentry tips and pointers!! #baseboard #craftsman #carpenter #joiner #satisfying #oddlysatisfying #wood #cope #scroll #scribe #carpentry #construction #likeaglove #interiordesign
All crown is copeable,but some just doesnt look right per se, in comes the jack cope. My client has alot of these dead returns on vaults so this is what this is.

Dryfitted bullnose. If you swipe you can see i use tape to keep these small pieces steady flip it glue it fold it with the tape and add miter clamps and let dry. I get asked alot so hope it helps.

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 #meme #carpentrymemes #carpenter #contractor #woodworking #joiner #houzz #homeimprovement #carpentry #millwork #baseboard
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.

Nothing more frustrating than cupped material. Why i prefer to cope,i dont just slice the flat area with the miter saw,i freehand it to adjust the cup,not visble to the eye but you definetly see it when cutting it. Exterior miters just get clamped to remove cup. Blade i use for this base is the 2 in scroll by bosch. Been super busy but got some exciting finish carpentry how to's,tips and projects so look out for them! #carpentry #scroll #jigsaw #satisfying #cope #woodwork #construction #baseboard #millwork #homeimprovement #build #carpenter #likeaglove
Ive been so insanely busy so my apologies i havent been delivering on some of the how to's but ill be catching a break this week so ill definitely continue where i left off on how to cope baseboard and fine tuning your miter saw!! Anyhow just fitting some pre assembled crown let me know if you questions #crownmolding #carpenter #oddlysatisfying #carpentry #finesse #millwork #likeaglove #construction #woodworking #houzz #miter #column #interiordesign
Back when fitting these inner boxes. Hypothetically since they are pre built with glue and clamps i could beat them in with a hammer if they were snug and they'd be fine. As soon as i get done editing the hour long video of building these newel post ill post it. Tmrw Ill post how i cope baseboard quickly. If you got questions comment below!! #stairs #post #column #customstairs #carpenter #oddlysatisfying #carpentry #builder #woodwork #buildersofig #finishcarpentry #millwork #likeaglove
I get asked alot how to make 22.5 degree copes work. In my opinion its not ideal, too much back cutting and messing around to make them work. On those i typically just miter and glue, pre clamp if possible since walls with those angles arent commonly long. Point of coping is quicker and better joints not dick around for 2 minutes for the sake of calling it a cope . Ill be covering how to cope these base cap profiles soon!so be on the look put #cope #carpentry #scribe #carpenter #likeaglove #finesse #baseboard #skirting #homeimprovement #tile #wood #oddlysatisfying #construction
A no brainer pre assembly. About a dozen post back i have a post on a jig i use to cut these small pieces accurately. Just my way of doing things might not work for you or your style but pre assembly has allowed me to deliver a better product quicker. Ill be doing some stories tmrw on installation of crown molding most are techniques i developed for my self and i havent shown so hopefully you guys tune in. #baseboard #carpenter #oddlysatisfying #wood #millwork #trickofthetrade #carpentry #construction #finishcarpentry #likeaglove
Throw back to fitting this pre finished x detail. Left it out for the painter only for the sake that it would have been crazy hard to paint it over shiplap. Got some crown molding pointers coming tmrw and thru the weekend so be on the look out. #shiplap #oddlysatisfying #finishcarpentry #jigsaw #joinery #craftsmanship #carpentry #carpenter #contractor #construction #woodworking #scribe #builtin
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. #crownmolding #builder #carpentry #crown #jigsaw #customfireplace #buildersofig #marble #carpenter #contractor #woodworking #joiner #remodel
The magical clam clamps making lines disappear. Pricey ,yes, worth every penny, absolutely. With a well tuned miter saw,sharp blade and these clamps the process becomes pretty idiot proof for high quality durable miters. To state the obvious you wanna biscuit,dowel,domino glue and clamp. Would anyone be interested in some pointers you may not know about on keeping your saw accurate? #carpentry #casing #door #craftsman #clamclamp #miterclamp #homeimprovement #tools #handtools #carpenter #remodel #finishcarpentry #tight
Was made aware of a post attacking ,myself, for recommending the collins cope foot(he was using it wrong, was cutting from topside) here i am using,a bulky d handle, underpowered, uncomfortable and just plain bad jigsaw yet i still manage to cope cleanly without sanding or a file afterwards. To recap cut on nested position to get the back cut right the first time, cut towards you and from the UNDERSIDE. Hopefully this helps someone somewhere,let me know if you guys want more vids like these and stay tuned for finish carpentry tips and pointers. Vid got .50 speed up original is close to a min. #coping #trim #homeimprovement #joiner #cope #diy #remodel   #renovation #crownmolding #miter #finishcarpentry #craftsmanship #jigsaw #builder #carpenter #woodwork #carpentry
Havent done a shout out in very long time, so here is one of the first guys i meet on ig, very talented fella @sethvyn ive definitely picked up some good tips from him and enjoy watching his work. Pretty down to earth dude even if he thinks john mayer is one of the best guitarist ever.

Got asked a bunch on cutting these smaller miters accurately, if you swipe you can see i just use a combo square to take all the measurements and transfer to the actual cuts. Super accurate which counts for something because you dont want to be re trimming these smaller cuts,for safety reasons. Hopefully this helps someone and stick around for more finish carpentry tips and pointers . P.s the crown was just floating in the pic. #fireplace #carpentry #craftsman #miter #generalcontractor #build #homerenovation #carpenter   #woodworking #homeimprovement #woodworker #joiner #Finewoodworling #homebuilder  #renovate   #tile #tools #craftsmanship #constructionlife #remodel #renovation #trim #finishcarpentry #miilwork #interiordesign
Fitting the pre assembled crown piece for the fireplace,just a better product. Ill post some tips and pointers on pre assembly from taking measurements to actual assembly so look out for that #craftsman #fireplace #generalcontractor #keepcraftalive #marble #handmade #builder #homerenovation #carpenter  #customfireplace #woodworking #homeimprovement #woodworker #carpenter  #renovate #carpentry #carpinterio #craftsmanship #construction #oddlysatisfying #interiordesign #trim #architecture #renovation #finishcarpenter
The valve was way off center from where i wanted to be so just hid it. This was last week ill take a vid tmrw since its already been sprayed on the easy solution i came up with. Anyhow let me know what you guys think and stay tuned for finish carpentry tips and pointers!! #craftsmanship #fireplace #generalcontractor #tile #handmade #builder #homerenovation #carpentry #accesspanel #woodworking #homeimprovement #woodworker #carpenter #perfection #renovate #carpinterio   #oddlysatisfying #craftsman #constructionlife #trim #remodel #renovation #finishcarpenter
Swipe to see the my micro trim jig. Nothing fancy doesnt have to be pretty but helps not launch micro cuts behind the saw and gives you a steady/safe zero clerance base. For micro returns i dont cut all the way, i leave a hair and just finish it off with my knife. Last pic is if you notice on the table how to tension up the collins clamps, adds a bit more pressure for really small pieces. Hope this helps someone somewhere ,let me know if youd like more post like these and stay tuned for more tips and pointers!! #craftsmanship #miter #generalcontractor #column #millwork #builder #homerenovation #carpenter #craftsman #constructionlife #remodel #trim #renovation #maker #finishcarpenter #capentry #woodworking #joiner #homeimprovement #woodworker #build #renovate   #houzz #carpintero #tools
As i get older i am finding the beauty in simplicity, even 5 years ago i would of probably went crazy on a fireplace design. I did record some vids on how i built it easily so ill have those up soon. But let me know what you guys think and ill have those how to vids along with tips and pointers soon. #carpentry #craftsmanship #crownmolding #fireplace #generalcontractor #homeimprovement #woodworker #homebuilder  #renovate  #fireplacedesign #carpintero  #craftsman #construction #interiordesign #remodel #trim #renovation #home #finishcarpenter #builder #millwork #homerenovation #carpenter   #woodworking
If you swipe you can see how i pre assemble the recessed panels,just glue and miter clamps. I dont pin nail them for sake of saving my self the aggravation of getting a proud pin or a deflected one. Once they are dry even if they are snug i can wrestle them in there without the miter coming apart. Anyhow let me know if you guys got questions and ill be posting some videos on building and installing these newel post soon just gotta edit them. #craftsman #railing #trickofthetrade . #carpenter #newelpost #craftsmanship #handmade #home #finewoodworking #homeimprovement #keepcraftalive #woodworker  #renovate #woodworking #homerenovation #contractor #carpentry #finishcarpenter #carpinterio  #tools #craftsman #builder #constructionlife #remodel #stairs
