I have an order to build a boat shelf… I’ll be sure to take pictures and blog about this one because i haven’t done anything like this before. But isn’t that the fun of building?? New challenges like this ? 🙂 When I saw boat shelf builds on pintrest I looked for plans on […]
Today i want to share how i do trim for my builds. Everyone has their own technique that works.
You have to find what works best for you. I’m just going to share my technique its simple and it works for me.
When I first started to do trim it was alot of trial and error.
TIP 1. INCLUDE YOUR TRIM IN YOUR MEASUREMENTS !!!
I cant stress this one enough, it will save you lots of stress and bad cuts.
Here i using some scrap 1×2’s taped on either side of the table i want to add trim to. This simple step will save your headaches later.
Simple tape your scrap wood to the sides of you project that you want to add trim to, and take your measurement. And do that for at least two sides.
the length and width of your project.
Now that you have your correct measurement you can now cut your trim and even take off the end that will make your 45 degree cut on each side of your project.
More pictures to come and even a small jig to correctly align your trim around your project.
