||Ah, here's the challenge, make my creation fit this window.
The side trim is loosely mounted, it will also have to be shortened a bit.
The first step is to align the trim over the window, tack it with a couple
of finish nails, and run a pencil around the inside of the window, on the
back side of the trim. This will give me an exact size of the trim.
But remember, there is a 3/16" reveal of the window casing
behind the trim. So when I take this thing home, I need to cut 3/16" inside
of my tracing line.
||I also need to be careful where I place the trim
blank. Remember there are screws in the back holding the segments together.
i needed to measure how far the screws were from the edge of the trim blank.
Then hold the trim in such a way that every joint was that far away. Then
I checked to see that the top most segment was level, and then I tossed
in a couple of finish nails
||Now that the trim was secure, we chose a position for
the joint between my trim and the side trim. The bottom of the level shows
that position, and we draw a line there so we can cut that in the
Well boys and girls, that's enough for our field trip,
now its back to the shop!
