  1. I can’t imagine how much harder it would be to do that type of finish work without a power miter saw and finish nail gun.

    Great videos , I had the opportunity to work on an Italionate built in 1862 here in upstate NY about two years ago . Had wainscoting very similar. Also, have you ever came across a crown molding nomograph? Thanks

  3. Thanks for sharing!! I love older homes with nice trim details. Greetings from Sherman, Tx

    The guy who did it was probably born in 1820s. I found out the guys here in Melbourne Australia actually made their own skirtings and trim themselves on site. I found this out when trying to match a piece to replace when a door way was filled. The guys had to make the tools first then make the length. They charged $1000! Another company quoted $1300

    I don’t know how old the nomograph is, it was givin to me by my architectural design professor. I will have to copy and send to you via email, it is cool to have, although I cut crown in position so I rarely would use it.

    I have a question. I would loke to install wainscoting on my walls. I have a door on the wall and am wondering how I can have the jam trim protrude from the wainscoting or if it does not need to. Thanks OBTW Love your videos .

  7. I m pretty sure we think the same way, as a trim carpenter I’ll always try to do things as they did them back in the day. I think the old styles are the best.

  8. So pretty! They didn’t use caulk back in the day and the stained wood still looked awesome. Thanks for posting!

    Gosh, when you run your hands over those miter cuts don’t you get an eerie feeling of connection to the guy who made them like the years suddenly didn’t exist between you two at that moment?

    Love old houses, I just finished rebuilding shutters on an old house in Salado TX. Always something different. Wouldn’t trade it for the world. Cool video. Keep them coming.
