Hi,

I am finishing the trim for a new house and it is craftsman style trim. There are a ton of backband pieces that need to be varnished on 4 sides. Doe anyone make a jig to hold them till they get tacky enough to put on a drying rack or does anyone know of a good way to do this? Thanks in advance.

Marty

I assume you are finishing the back side just to seal it. What I normally do in this situation is make a board with a bunch of nails in it to hold the wood up off the sawhorses. I spray the back side first and while it's wet set the trim face side up on the nails and spray the edges and the face.

Thanks for these ideas. I am brushing on the varnish but I will see what I can figure out.

If you are brushing the finish I think I would cut some pieces of wood triangluar in shape like angle iron and lay the wet trim on the pointed edge. It will stick a little but it's not hard to get off.
