So a week or so ago I built a crown molding shelf for my soon to be born daughters room. Well I only built one and after looking at it on the wall I decided that it looked a little lonely there hanging all by itself so I did what any self respecting woodworker would do …......... I gave myself another reason to build something. I went to the store and bought the materials I would need and a little extra, you know just in case. Well my wife was with me so I couldn’t buy a much e...
When I gutted the bathroom in my house I just couldn’t just hang the mirror on the wall again. Plus I didn’t want to drive the 6 mile round trip to spend $5 on a tube of Mirror adhesive only to use less than a dollars worth on a 24”x30” mirror. I spent a few hours and cleared out a bunch of scrap pine and leftover pieces of crown molding to cobble together a mirror frame for the mirror I pulled down during demo.

While in the process of building a Bourdonnais French style bookcase I needed to make some crown molding for the top. I wasn’t about to go out and spend money on some pre-made crown molding.

Part of the problem is just figuring out how to cut the molding. That topic will be ...
Progress! After cutting the modling on the jig (which worked really well, by the way), some coping saw skill building and some creative Dremel-ing, the end of the first 12’ piece was complete: The first piece destined for the wall was one of the 14’ pieces, so I cut that square on both ends. Patty then painted them with the primer and pain we selected, Benjamin Moore Navajo White in Semi-Gloss (see modification, below). We left the 12’ piece in its original 14...
It’s part 4 of the basic flower box. Man, when is this stupid flower thing going to end? Oh yeah, this is the end. Finally we can be done with digging in the dirt and smelling sweet smells that get into your clothes. Oh cripe i’m a girlie guy! I hate my life. PLus there will be new segmets to the show in the near future, with new characters. Stay tuned.Visit woodchoppintime.comor become a subscriber at www.youtube.com/bigchopperoo
