Well, I am making some modifications to the original crown moulding profile for the case. I dont have all the bits, and my wood is all thicknessed to 3/4 and I dont have the time(only 5 more days till XMAS!!!!) to get it done. So I am modifying it to use what I have. This is what I am looking at doing. Ill try and post some actual photos today later too.
Well last Sunday we received around 4” of rain in a 24 hour period half of which came overnight.

So I’m guessing that shop time is at a premium and computer time is at a minimum.
