You are definitely one of the busy LJs, Charles!


I can’t tell … what species of wood is the front strip??

Did you get to use the Bostich Air Banana for this one??

well done , charles .

good to see you working at all different things ,

you are learning allot that way ,

you won’t always use some ways again for awhile ,

but what you learn ,and how you solve these different problems ,

will help you to be ready for even bigger and more challenging work .

when others are looking for a simple way , that they know about ,

you will be ready to ‘hear ’ the clients needs ( and the work needs ) ,

and have different ways to do that .

i have heard so many builder say ,

” thats the way it is done , and thats the way i’m going to do it ” !

what they realy mean is , ’ thats all i know , and i just want to finish ,
and get paid ’ .

they don’t go to far .

Looks like you used that tablesaw on the plywood, and maybe your miter saw on that trim. Sounds like woodworking to me!!!
