I redid the horrible window trim in my bedroom and bathroom while insulating (w/ spray expanding foam) some large gaps around the windows (the gaps can be seen in the last picture). I used pine moulding and cheap pine ply from the local Home Depot, so nothing fancy material-wise. The large scale of the window pieces, the very out-of-square framing of my house, and the huge amount of sanding involved (mostly on that horrible plywood) made this project draw on seemingly forever. It’s now completed and keeps my room nice and warm. I used two coats of minwax tung oil finish rubbed on with cheesecloth.

This might seem like a very simple project for some, but when working with an out-of-framing home it can be a bear. Good job.

I agree with the out of square home problem. I often said building from new is so much easier than remodling for that very reason. Way to hang in there…......nice job.
