Looking good. Not sure if you did it or not, but I like how they did the trim on the bull noised corners in the house.

Good looking work MrTrim. That level of finish trim work is tough, but you sure make it look easy.

I always love the detail in your trim work. Not many people would take the time to cut two 22.5 degree angle for the corners especially in the crown never mind the baseboard. I usually cheat and toss in some kind of corner block.

-- I've cut that board three times and it's still too short!

Hey Trim, nice job.
I also like the double mitered crown. Nice effect.
I didn’t know you had a pony tail :)
