Make it with Wood
Our son Matthew was left with a little problem after the carpenter decided he was paid and finished up with the job.
Here is the other side of the wall and trim
I suggested we make molding to go around the window and see if we can’t finish the job for him.
So my home this week has been at home, cutting, staining, planing, and routing wood.
It started with this
swirly tiny craft molding I found at Michaels. Getting the angle just right was a bit of an art and I’m glad I had the “French Gardener” here to help.
Pieces of wood cut, sanded and stained.
Maybe you are starting to recognize how this is going to come together?
I made four corners for the window and then decided to do the back door on the same side. These are the six corners after I’d gluing all the little bits on.
It took both pair of hands to cut the wood and then turned the drill press on its end and put in a router bit and made three grooves in the lengths of the wood.
Why go to the trouble? Well although the window is in, the carpenter created a problem that will need a 3″ border of trim to go around the window to hide. I suggested to Matthew that he should make the molding just before he suggested to me he would buy me the wood.
I’m linking up with Sandi and her Home Party where we share crafting, thrifting, creating, while others are sipping tea, some may be putting up decorations or helping out a neighbour, its home and where your heart is come along.
Thank you “Lord” for this glorious day, we give thanks for family, caring, and teaching. We honor those who watch, and praise those who help. We think about family who are away and ones we can’t ever reach.
Thank you for stopping by today, even though the weather on Prince Edward Island was colder than usual and the wind was blowing and the snow was flying it was a terrific day.
