Topic tags/keywords: question miter saw tablesaw refurbishing modern

I’m finished with my hallway for the most part but I’m going to make some custom door trim for the entire house. I’ve designed a plinth and rosette and made a mockup from a hunk of scrap wood.


Here’s a little diagram I will use for cutting ‘next’ time.

I was a little off when I eyeballed the cuts so setting a stop block will improve accuracy and speed up cutting immensly. Clamping was problematic, not just because of the inprecission because my work slid around a little.

Any advice about clamping?

Since I’m going to attach these to the wall, The only part that will come in contact with the wall will be the the pencil thin edges. Do you see any issues?

I was toying with the idea of putting a big bead of liquid nails in the back cavities then putting in a couple of pin nails to hold it to the wall while the glue dried. Recomendations?

Thanks for your time lumberjocks!

Hi Mark:

Sorry but your Photo is too dark for me to understand exactly how you are trying to do the Trim and Plinth.

Hoever I did the same thing throughout my Home. About a Year Ago.

The Kitchen was Stripped and turned into a “Country Kitchen”. Stained and Poly Finish Plinths, Base, Plate Rails etc, were used to Hopefully acheive that look …LOL.. I hope this is of some use to you.

First Pic shows the Plinth (8”High), Colonial Base (5-3/4” High), Colonial Casing (3-1/4” Wide) and Colonial Door Stop (1-3/8’ High) that I prefer to use rather than 3/4 Round or Shoemould. The “White Thing” on the Left is a ”Dust Pan” as this is the Kitchen. Sweep the Crumbs to it. hit it with your foot, SWOOSH!! All Gone (it’s hooked into my In House Vacuum System.)

Second Pic is about the same from a Higher Angle.

Third Pic shows the Upper Part with Colonial Corner Blocks (3-5/8”). Plate Rails, Supports, Railings, Balustrades, etc. I made myself.

The Ceiling Beams were done about 3 Months Ago. I should do a Project on them alone.

AND!! For No Extra Charge …LOL… I threw in a Pic of my Stairway.

As it’s 2 Story all the way up, the object was to Visually Drop it some. Chair Rail (3/4” x 2-1/8”) with “Joiners” that are usually used for “Baseboard Installations” and “Symmetrical Panel Mould” 3/8” Thick x 3/4” Wide.

Sorry about those images. Lets try that again.

As you can tell, I wasn’t very precise on my cuts and I had slippage when I clamped.

Now my questions may make sense.

Rick, that is some beautiful work!!!! What is that profile called on the bottom strip? I used quarter round but I like the way your’s ends

-- Thanks for all the lessons!

Thanks for the Compliment Mark.

The Profile is ”Colonial Doorstop” I might have a Profile on here. Hang on ….Okay got them. I have a “Mill” just around the corner “Royal Woodworking” they produce every type of Trim and Dimensional Lumber you could think of.

GEEZ!! I cut them down and they come out BIG!! On here. #1 Colonial Door Stop. #2 Colonial Base. #3 Colonial Casing. These are the Sizes I used in the Photos but I can get Base up to 8-1/2”. That’s the Tallest “Door Stop” they carry but it also goes down to 1-1/4”.

Guess that’s it Buddy. Let me know if I can be of further assistance. ALWAYS A Pleasure!
