Chair rail

I haven't posted for a while because of being really busy. I had to post today because of some chair rail I have noticed. We have been on the McDonalds kick lately for breakfast and the trim work in some of these places is just aweful. Where they get the people to do this work is beyond me. This type of work is what gives us finish carpenters a bad name. Its pretty apparent that they don't screen their subs before they hire them...but then to let this type of work pass is irritating. There are to many good hard working carpenters out there to have this...yes I am a little frustrated!

Lately I have been getting a lot of e-mails for baseboarding. I think I need to get a lot more pictures up at the site for this as I know that maybe my explainations are probably not the easiest to follow. At this point there is a lot of things going on but in the near future I will work on this for my readers. This week I will be going over to finish the office job and as promised I will get pictures to show this style of trim. As always keep e-mailing if you don't understand something and that can be done anywhere on my site at www.finishcarpentryhelp.com and I will answer as soon as I can

Happy Birthday Dad!

I had to mention my Dads birthday because I know he will get a kick out of seeing here. Actually its a day late his birthday is 2 days after moms.
Ok a little update: I know a lot of people are waiting for the handrailing e-book and it is coming along but its turning into a lot more than I anticipated. I want it to be as high quality as possible and to achieve that it takes time but its coming along and it shouldn't be to much longer....Also the cabinet e-book is coming along as well and should be just as good. Stay tuned!!

Happy Birthday Mom!!!

Today is my mom's birthday...she is 65 yrs. young and I had to mention it because I know she will be reading this....Happy Birthday and I love you Mom.....Today I would like to talk about this company I am working with that is helping me set up the store and do continued work on my web site project. They are located in Indiana and have been absolutley wonderful. I have worked with a few web companies in the past, and this one stands out far above the others.
Mom always taught us to be curteous, honest and respectful to others. This company treats its customers that way - they give me straight answers with no b/s and listen to my opinion! They are honest, curteous and offer good solid advice and are interested in helping me achieve the next level in business...what a rare find in todays market. So if you are truly looking for web success here is the link to their company http://www.websuccessagency.com/

Ever seen this?

I decided to replace my basement exterior door in my house with a patio glass sliding door. I bought this house a few years back and the exterior walls are extra wide not like your average 2x6 construction but never thought much about it. Come to find out when I opened up the wall there is actually two 2x4 walls built inside the wall. Each 2x4 wall has the cavities insulated plus the two walls are spaced apart 3 and 1/2 inches and that space has insulation running horizontally filling the space. In a sense it is a super insulated house. Each individual wall has poly between them and creates two vapor barriers. has anyone ever run into this? Let me know at my web page at www.finishcarpentryhelp.com I would be interested to hear and learn a little more concerning this.
