Hello fellow Jocks. I took on this project for Bobbi my next store neighbor. She bought the crown at Menards and did a great job of matching stain and finish. We were supposed to do this “on the sly” while husband Rick was on a fishing excursion for a few days. Well I finished the cabinets with the two inside corners one day and did the two outside corner cabinets the next. I made a nailer on the table saw to mount the crown to. I had to splice two runs because the sticks only come in 8ft. pieces and needed 10ft. The other we were trying to save some money. The one splice turned out good, the other not so good. Rick came home and everyone agreed to take the not so good section down, buy another stick, then redo it. I am glad we did! It looks a lot better and having an extra hand to mount it was great. Used my 23 gauge pinner for the job and the results were very good. The project was a little scary because you do not really have to much room for error. Yeah, you can putty but it doesn’t look the same. It seems like a fairly easy project to do but as with anything else I do, there is alot more to it than meets the eye. Had fun doing it and got paid with a fish and morel mushrooms feast with good company. I think a came out way ahead on the deal by far. Cheers, Jack.
