Kitchen island wainscoting project. I wanted to match the detail from the existing cabinet on the far left, which meant I had to bring the baseboard down to 4 inches. On the far right I transitioned the baseboard back to 7 1/2 inches matching the rest of the room. Iowa 2021

Recreated this early 1900's Farmhouse wide Pine casing and baseboard. Original doors and floors. One of the most involved projects I've taken on by myself, and it's done. Iowa 2020


1 by 8 Radiata Pine baseboard. Sanded down slow to 120 grit, and first thin coat of American Chestnut Polyshades. Iowa Farmhouse Trim 2020


Plynth blocks, fresh second coat on the sills, and casing legs front to back. I did all extensions and rips pre stain so I'm not dragging finished product through the table saw etc. When I go to install soon it will be all crosscuts and returns


Trimming out the top floor of this turn of the century farmhouse. I'm batting cleanup for a previous contractor in order to get the house on the market in October. None of the windows or doors were prepared correctly, so I'm adding extensions to all the casing legs (see chop saw)


Recreating some old wide pine trim for a farmhouse outside of Iowa City. New Radiata Pine is notoriously difficult to stain so everything has to be sanded down to open the grain, pre conditioned, stained, and polyed.


Pretty pumped about this new drive up storage space. Trimming out a farmhouse soon and using it as a staging area in between milling staining, etc.
