If you are dealing with uneven walls and floors that dont quite meet at 90* you can cheat certain things, within reason. This will depend on factors like wainscot and shadow boxes as well. - The floor slopes just over 1/4” down in this 40” run, which requires the cope to be scribed. I usually shove my piece into place, and run a line up it with a mechanical pencil. - Dont be surprised if the line is slightly curved, which can happen with taller baseboard that is solid wood, you can get slight cupping. This is why scribing in place helps over just taking a square and drawing a straight line. - I like to back up my copes with glue. Just run a bead of quick n thick moulding glue on the inner edge and spring fit it into place, then wipe the ooze with a rag around a red pry bar. - A final tip. Once you install a piece of baseboard on a slight angle, you wont be able to cut the other end square either. Make yourself a marking block (preacher) by cutting a piece of scrap jamb material or a board, that will transfer the line of the casing, to the front of the baseboard. - You can also use an angle gauge from the side of the casing to the top of the baseboard, but a preacher is faster in my opinion and has less room for error. The line is the line. - @officialmetrie @titebondproducts #moulding #carpentry #carpenter #installation #baseboard #base #scribing #coping #cope #carpentrytips #poplar

#tinytiptuesday Good morning IG! Here’s a cool little tip- what is a “film canister” anyway?😝 You may have some in the attic- if so, grab em’ and put them to use protecting your router bits or other small parts. If you can get canisters in a color other than black, as pictured here, then you can label them as well. Have a great week! #tips #tricks #hacks #carpentrytips #carpentryhacks #work #build #remodel #renovate #learn #share #educate #craft #keepcraftalive #film #filmcanister #router #routerbit #bits #protect #protection #mike_guertin #peter_heard @mike_guertin
There are few ways to calculate the California sleeper bevel angle . For an equal pitched roofs you can use the simple formula (90°- sum of backing angles of both roofs) but let's talk about the situation where the backing bevels are different . For example : main roof pitch is 10/12 and overlay roof is 3/12 ( it's very unusual but i had to exaggerate a bit😀).In order to find the angle we assume that cv sleeper is a hip of the dual pitched roof with the main slope (90°- 3/12) , we need to find the plan and hip angles , and use them in the inverse tangent formula , we must divide the sine of the hip by the COtangent (not tangent) of the plan angle otherwise we will get very similar but incorrect number .

Cheap, decent small drill bits: regular old-school finish nails that have been decapitated. This was a step in an assembly process where I needed to drill a bunch of holes and I knew an 1/8” bit would be too big and a 1/16” would be too small (and I’d probably break a few as they heated up anyway). This is how the carpenters in the era between cut nails and guns avoided splitting small moldings when they hand nailed. Pre-drill a hole with the same size nail. Nip the head off first. . . . #drillbit #trimtips #trim #tips #drill #renovation #carpentrytips #build #renovate #predrill #carpentry #trimwork #woodworking #keepcraftalive #finishnails #nails #trimnails #contractorsofinsta #molding #cabinets #finishcarpentry #bedminsternj #bernardsvillenj #tewksburynj #califonnj #oldwicknj #farhillsnj #trimcarpenter

Breaking News......... Morning Fresh Not Just For Doing The Dishes 🤪 ~ Skah-doosh 👊🏼 Evening Y’all! So if you’ve been wondering how I’m getting these 4” nails through well seasoned Australian Messmate 👌🏼 well here you go! Yes you can use bees wax or bar soap or wax, but the nail heats up pretty damn good & the waxes just melt off, so you could go oil but come on we’re not frying eggs 🍳 ha really it will just leave a nasty arse stain & I don’t know BUT I’m pretty sure you don’t want that bleeding trough your walls 😉, so grabbed this from under the kitchen sink, & as you can see as the nail drives home! The liquid soap builds up at the entry point, continuously lubricating the nail until it’s seated fully & I know 🥜 right but here’s the clincher 💯 if you get the concentrated one you use half as much 🤪 ha! But today I wasn’t out on site! I’ve been in the office today crackin on with a Ute loaf of paperwork! Quoted & landed another job today! Along with a bunch of other things! My brain is just about knackered! Pretty keen on putting the feet up & chillin for a bit! 😴 ~ But if you find that the morning Fresh has gone missing from your kitchen 🥳 there is a fair chance that your partner has it...... or me it could possibly be me 🤪 ~ Hey! Start using the Hashy! #woodworkingsquad 🥰 love checking out your latest projects 💯 ~ #morningfresh #freshmorning #liquidsoap #framingnailer #hammer #carpentrytips #woodworkingtips #woodworkingtip #carpentryskills #carpentryaustralia #martineztools #martinezhammer #toolsofthetrade #galvenized #tradie #tradielife #aussietradie #mastercraftsman #worksmarternotharder #businessmanlife
Did the @samuraicarpenter modification to my routers. Makes using them so much easier and opens the door to many more ways of using them.

Wildwood pro-tip #3 : when I have large sheets to glue-up, after glue is applied to surfaces, I use lengths of dowel as a spacer and lay the mating sheet on top of those, and then its easy to roll/adjust and align the sheets as I want them. Then I remove one dowel and get the end/corners lined up and clamp it. Then i remove the other dowel and its cake to align the other edge/end. This is especially helpful when glue is setting up fast due to warm weather. #woodworkingtips #workbenchbuild #glueups #woodworking #workbenchbuild #woodworkers #carpentrytips #carpenter #cabinetmaker
So, I ran across this in my short basement. It’s a tool I used to shingle my house. Stick the tongue under a course and it will hold quite a few shingles within reach. I think I learned this back in the late 70’s. Anyone else do this?
(Only mentioning this bc it came up the other day) Don't cram your tape measure into corners to take your measurements. It's kinda hard to read and requires a teensy bit of guess work. Instead, measure from one side, left or right, and put a mark at an easy-to-remember number. Then measure from the opposite side, and add that number to your first number. You'll have a perfect fit every time. This is an old trick and seems pretty obvious, but I taught it to a guy the other day who has been woodworking for a few years. Hope it helps. #trim #trimcarpentry #woodworking #carpentrytips #diy #homeimprovement
Hope everyone had a beauty holiday season!!! 😁🙌🏻 Getting ready for the new year, and looking forward to 2019. I find the cleanest way for building walls is to toe-nail your plate along your chalk lines. 👍🏻 When building this can be done for all shear walls when you plan correctly! Snip the nails when things are braced and tied in. 😁🤘🏻👊🏻💪🏻🔨📐 @carpentrytipsandtricks . . . . . . #tipoftheday #carpentrytips #squaresnapbuildrepeat #framerlife #framing #carpenter #professional #kelemenconstruction #mathneverlies #mattklmn #professionaladvice
SWIPE ▶️ and there’s audio if you care 🔊 Some #carpentrytips for scribing to stone. This is from the project that shows up under the tag #scribedwindowtrim . This stage of scribing is admittedly rough. This is only to get the piece in the ballpark so that you can find the places it hits the stone and start taking off those spots a little at a time. (When I held this first attempt in place, it was mostly about 1/2” away- not even close) I make sure to leave extra material at deeper places such as joints in the stonework that are very deep. When in doubt, leave extra material. Something I didn’t mention in the third video is that I will purposefully tilt the scribe tool out of level at a deep horizontal feature such as a joint; pencil end slightly low at the bottom of a deep feature and pencil end slightly high at the top of a deep feature. This leaves more wood which you can always remove later. But if you hold it level and you are off (and I find that I am often off at those spots on the first pass) you will have cut out too much material and you will have a void. And that’s no fun.
Sometimes screw heads snap off when working on a project. Here's one method to correct this using a plug cutter and a dowel . 1) Use a plug cutter to cut around the lodged screw in your work surface . 2) Once the broken screw is removed, insert a dowel in the new hole. Be sure to glue the dowel into the hole . 3) Allow the glue to dry, and cut off any protruding part of the dowel that is sticking out. The dowel now acts as the new surface that will receive a screw . 4) Pre-drill the hole and install your new screws . #mestre #carpentry #cabinetry #woodworking #diy #finishcarpentry #trimcarpentry #woodwork #carpentrytips #woodworkingtips #diycarpentry #carpentrytricks #doors #brokenscrew #furniture #renovation #construction #contractor #mississauga #toronto #oakville #carpenter #tricksofthetrade #diycarpenter #diywoodworking #torontocarpentry #carpentrytechniques #hgtv #hgtvcanada #makeitright
#tinytiptuesday Good Tuesday Instagram! Here’s a tip when adding blocking to steel stud framing: This wall pictured will be a walk in closet- so we’re adding some solid blocking (not just sheet metal). I have seen guys just zip a bunch of screws through the face of the stud which deforms and twists the stud... All that’s needed is a single saw kerf (first pic). Mark one block and cut a 1/4” deep kerf with a chop saw. Before removing, mark a pencil line on the table of the saw- set all following blocks on the line and cut em’. Virtually no time lost and no stud damage! Have a great week guys and girls! #tips #tricks #hacks #carpentrytips #carpentryhacks #work #build #learn #share #educate #renovate #remodel #remodeling #steel #steelstuds #steelstudframing #basementfinish #craft #keepcraftalive #peter_heard
Raised Panel Doors - one of the toughest things to make as a Carpenter! I've found that making door panels out of MDF works well, especially if you dilute wood glue and brush it onto the freshly milled profile. . If ya don't add the diluted wood glue and try to paint, the raw MDF will soak up the finish like a sponge, which requires many coats to remedy. . The diluted glue truly seals the profile and makes it finish as easily as the factory MDF surfaces!! . #nerdout #woodworking #raisedpaneldoors #pdxwoodworking #carpenterlife #carpentry #finecarpentry #carpentrytips #mdfdoors #portlandcrafters #pdxsmallbusiness #cabinetry #cabinetrydesign #cabinetrydesigner #cabinetmaker

A break from all the closet pictures to share some trim tips. I always use crown hangers for long pieces and pre-assemble my returns with super glue. I also make them match the other corners in the room to keep things cohesive. In this room they were rounded so I did a 5 piece return. It takes longer to do it this way but I think the result is worth the extra effort. 👍🏾 . . . . . #crownmolding #carpentrylife #carpentrytips #woodworking #houstonwoodworker #trimcarpenter #thedustylife
Quick tip to share with you if you don’t have a plungsaw or can’t be bothered to set up your router this is a quicker option. A piece of scrap timber fixed to the bottom of a circular saw to prevent any split out on oak doors just make sure the scrap timber is sat on the door side when cutting not your off cut side. Also always remember to run a quick saw cut on the exerting side of the blade this will prevent split out up the edge of the door. Would normally use my trim saw but I’ve left it on a different job so out comes the makita 5903R 235mm#chippylife #sundaygrind #carpenter #carpentry #work #doorhaning #doorrefurbishment #doorreplacement #doorfittings #oakdoors #carpentrytips #makitauk #makita
Hope someone benefits from this. I'm fitting the wainscoting underneath the drywall and want the seam to flush out. I've found that using tar paper strips is a useful tool for this type of shimming. I fold the tar paper the the desired thickness and leave a tab overhanging the edge of the plywood. This allows me to hold the piece in place over the framing member and test the fit before nailing. I don't have to worry about the pieces falling out of place. All the strips will be hidden by the chair rail. #tipoftheday #carpentrytips #wainscoting #sharingiscaring #seattle #remodel #tools #festool #walnut #woodworkibg #businessowner @pbellp
This project was a great test of the skills and processes we have been developing. From start to finish we dialed this one in. Clean lines, onsite crafted trim work, finish spraying, installed Windows, patching lathe and plaster, framing,tile and painting. Great learning lesson for the team and small improvements to be made. For a small job it had a lot of components and is a great showcase of our skill and craftsmanship. #team #carpenter #carpentry #seattle #festool #painting #tile #businessowner #remodel #carpentrytips #strategy #happythanksgivng @festool @devilbliss @sherwinwilliams @kate7m @pbellp @boschtoolsna @trghomeconcepts @trghomeconcepts thanks for setting a bar and sharing tips.

I used to write numbers down when I needed to remember them. Now I find myself just reaching for my phone to snap a pic. Here I am taking a pic of the position of the wood relative to the L-track so I can find it once the panels are back on.

I don't always get flawless miter joints, but there's a way to keep your joints strong and avoid buying wood fillers that may eventually crack . 1)First step is make a mistake, and remind yourself that it's ok, because mistakes are necessary, and a great way to learn . 2)Sand the joint and get wood dust into the seam . 3)Add some glue into the joint and rub it in until it becomes tacky . 4)Sand the joint when glue has dried . 5)Yellow glue will dry clear, so it's a great way to trick your painters when they try apply wood filler to your "mistake" joint . I hope you read this and I hope this helps ❤ . #mestrecanada #mestre #carpentry #trim #finishcarpentry #trimtips #carpentrytips #woodwork #baseboardtips #mitermasters #miterjoint #joint #joinery #trimcarpentry #woodworking #tricksofthetrade #instagram #contractorsofinsta #contractortips #design #carpentertips #howtobecomeacarpenter #hgtv #makeitright #carpentryhacks #protips #woodmoulding #mississauga #oakville #toronto @titebondproducts @hitachipowertoolsusa

Swipe 👉🏼 Oddly handy tip. The smooth finish on layers of prefinished moldings and cabinetry is slippery, and a little blob of this helps keep it from sliding around while measuring and cutting longer pieces of molding by yourself. A very tiny blob can be left behind the molding when it’s installed. You don’t have to go to an incredibly awesome art supply store like @risdstore at @risd1877 to get this stuff, but it’s more fun. Went there while we were at the last @jlclive show in Providence, RI.
We all love to hate the #perko closers! Without fail the best way to deal with them! #chippylife 🔨 #carpentrytips #chippyswork #chrisdurdlecarpentry #joiner #joinery #tipoftheday
#scribesaturday S W I P E This was one odd block in the run of blocking that needed to look thicker. (That drywall will be trimmed back and have a termination bead mudded on.) Once the scribe was cut with a 50 grit sanding disc in the grinder, a miter was cut on the edge and joined to the vertical block. Some glue is sticking out of the miter. When it’s dry, I will run the side of my nail set along the miter which slightly smushes the two sharp edges closed. It’s kinda cheating 🤫
Pro Tip: when you need to tweak the hinges on your door but the new holes fall too close to the old ones, use toothpicks or bamboo skewers to fill the holes with a little wood glue on them. Let dry, cut & sand to level, viola! New holes now have something to grip. A very nice handyman taught me this! 👌🏼 . . . #wood #woodisgood #woodworker #femalecarpenter #girlswhowoodwork #weekendproject #weekendwarrior #woodworking #woodworkingwoman #carpentry #diy #creativeideas #innovation #protip #easyfix #hangingdoor #diydoor #carpentryhacks #carpentrytips #woodworkingtips #lifehacks
Dirty hands are a sign of clean money . • Finishing Wood with Stain & Varnish • So you can varnish and take care of your furniture yourself. You don’t need expensive tools or special skills. It’s easy to do and requires a bit of time. (I used my Sunday😁) Follow these steps(no shortcuts, sorry!) and you’ll get a flawless finish everytime! . 1. Sanding: a good finish begins by sanding bare wood with a 100-grit sanding paper. This is crucial for achieving a uniform wood surface that’ll absorb stain evenly. It also smoothes out surface imperfections, which might show through the clear coat. You goal here is to eliminate the sawmill “burnish”(shiny surface left by the planer), smooth off rough wood fibres and sand out blemishes. For hand sanding I used I sanding sponge, a sanding pad for curves and a folded piece of sandpaper for crevices. . 2. Brush on a sanding sealer: brush a sealer in the direction of the grain, always! Shine a strong light on the wet surface to highlight areas you might have missed(they’ll be dull). Immediately “tip-off” the wet finish by stroking the entire surface from end to end with long, light, overlapping strokes of the wet brush. That’ll even out the coat and help eliminate brush marks. If you see brush marks after tipping off, leave them and sand them out later. Work quickly; sanding sealers dry fast! . 3. Finish up with oil-based wood varnish: brush on the wood varnish with the same techniques you used for the sanding sealer. If you’re working in a clean room and did a good job, one coat will be cool. Let it dry overnight. To add another coat of wood varnish, prepare the surface as you did after the sanding sealer, including sanding the finish with extra fine sanding paper l, dusting the surfaces and wiping everything down with a clean cloth(I use cotton painter’s rags- sold at screen printing stores in Goa)Then add another coat of varnish! . ⚠️Always sand/brush in the direction of the grain⚠️ . #interiordesign #interiordesignertips #diy #interiordesigngoals #bedroomgoals #homegoals #woodworking #woodwork #woodworkskills #carpentrytips #lifeasadesigner #ilovewhatido #myhustle #goa #diy #interiordesigneringoa #furniture #iphonex
Scroll Sideways. The old floor joists that are set in the stonework will remain exposed but the old masonry between the joists is to be covered. One option was to run drywall up between the joists. Instead, blocking made of reclaimed lumber of the same species was installed. It could appear to be a continual beam that the joists are connected to. Because of the variation in thickness of the blocking material, the front edge was set to a string line. The plane of the face of the wood is set 1/2” proud of the finish face of the drywall. “Tear-away” bead is a plastic termination strip that the drywall finisher attaches at the upper edge of the drywall where it meets the row of blocking. Attached to the edge bead is a small exposed temporary plastic strip that keeps compound (most of it) from getting on the blocking. After the last coat of compound is sanded, the white plastic strip is torn off and a perfectly clean edge of drywall is left. Some of the reclaimed wood was used around the door opening to build up the framing for aesthetic purposes. This mahogany door will be trimmed with the reclaimed wood.
Wrapping up some of the trim at #mapleranchhouse . Quick Tip🤔 When installing window trim, prefabricate your extension jambs and casing on a workbench. Put them aside, let the glue set, and pop ‘em right in. You’ll work faster with better results #rismallbusiness #rirealestate #homerenovation #carpentrytips #windowtrim

#tinytiptuesday Hey guys here’s a quick tip to help you keep an accurate depth when repeatedly drilling holes in stock. We’ve all used the tape trick, but here’s a better way!!! See if it helps!

If you have a good one, dm me and I’ll repost it and tag you. #tips #tricks #hacks #carpentrytips #carpentryhacks #learn #educate #build #share #craft #keepcraftalive #work #drill #mike_guertin #peter_heard @mike_guertin
The exterior trim on these windows was a bit tedious. Had to mark parts of the stones that stuck out too far with a scrap and cut them down so the pre-made @boraltruexterior frame could be applied. They were sized to have a light 1/8” gap around the window. Used a @kregjig to join the top joints of the frame and @grkfasteners trim screws at the bottom of the frame as well as for connecting the frame to the building.
While this is pretty basic for experienced carpenters, I’ve seen a lot of young guys/gals struggle with laying out stair stringers. One common mistake Is forgetting to take off the thickness of the tread on the bottom and the thickness of the riser on top. In this case, were using 2x material for the treads so the bottom riser height needs to be 1-1/2” smaller than the rest. Hope this helps anyone who has struggled laying out stairs.
