Here is the craftsman trim I installed in our kitchen. I kiln dried and milled the rift sawn white oak for this project, and it is always a pleasure to have straight, square stock. The pediment features a radiused fillet, and a two-piece chamfered cap. There are four different stock thicknesses with this style trim – the sill and the main pediment header are 1”, the fillet is 7/16”, the two cap pieces are 1/2” each, and the casing stock is 3/4” thick.
With the windows being close together, I had to decide whether to join the casing pieces. With the windows over the sink, I wanted to avoid a small bit of backsplash tile between the windows so I chose to connect the side casing. For the three nook windows, I wanted to show the corner details of the trim so I kept the casing separate. The sill and top cap piece just kiss at a 45 degree angle.
The side casings register to the sill with biscuits.
Finish is oil based stain and two coats of pre-cat lacquer. For this project, the trim was pre-finished before installation.
