    Please see my photo. I'm trying to finish my garage window trim, but the current wooden window frames are recessed, or setback a bit from the studs and from the drywall that I've hung.

    Hey everyone, I came across this forum in search of a good woodworking site that I can bounce and gather ideas for future renovations in my home. Back in August I purchased a house built in 1957. The house has gone through light renovations over the years but still showed the age easily with...

    I'm installing 42" tall kitchen cabinets in a 96" tall room. I'm assuming the ceiling isn't perfectly flat. How do I install the cabinets so that they are all at the same level?

    I live in a house built in 1906, and a few of the rooms are missing the original baseboard molding. I'm trying to replicate it, but I'm new to routing, and I need some help. I've attached a sketch of the molding I'm trying to recreate. The molding is painted in the house, so I can't tell for...

    My wife and I recently inherited an oak entertainment piece that will not fit into the room we want it to go in because it's too large. I might be able to fit the piece if I removed the crown molding at the top. This would make the furniture narrower by about 5 inches total (2.5 inches on both...

    I'm looking for a simple way to finish off a bar I've made. I'm wondering if I can buy a handrail from HD or Lowes, then rip a 3/8-1/2' lip off one side to make the molding for my bar top. Any thoughts on drawbacks of this route? Thanks in advance for the input. Cheers! James

    I am a DIYer fixing up a home we are plan on living at for 20 years or more. I am putting in new baseboard through out the house. I do not want to use stock molding and have decided to make my own by routing some simple, clean angles. I am pretty skilled with a saw and my angles are good...
