How To Design & Understand the Trim & Molding for your Home




Molding Design Plans:

Building a model for a trim and molding project is a great way to see what the molding will look like before it’s installed and understand how everything comes together.

    How do you decide where to place your nails for each type of trim?

    Thanks for this video, Jon. It's exactly what I needed to see before I start to replace my existing baseboards.

    Your miter saw cuts are so clean. No splintering. New blade on every cut?

    Thanks for the video Jon; it really makes me want to get back in the shop and start building.
    I am really looking forward to the build videos of the cabinets.

    What do you normally use to fill the nail holes? I use either joint compound or some spackle and sand it smooth.

    Any chance you'll be covering those built-ins on the channel? I am in the planning phase for some built-ins in my living room and would love to see your take on a project like that before solidifying my plans.

    With molding I typically use adhesive in the back, and use store brand caulking in the crack. Still cracking occurs seasonally. Would switching to big stretch eliminate the need for adhesive in the back?

    Great video and helps if one is using painted trim. How do you fill these gaps if one is going with a non-painted finish on the trim? I understand using filler between joints but how would you fill the gaps, say on the top of the base molding?

    Love to hear any ideas on how to avoid build up in the corner where the casing meets the baseboard. I always end up trying to dig out the excess with a 5-in-1.

    That’s a great idea. I keep a few cabinets doors on hand for reference. I never thought of doing that with trim. Seems like a great way to sell more jobs.

    Jon, I wanted to ask , do you have any ideas how to make your own trim using reclaimed wood? I have limited tools, no lathe or router. Any suggestions what tools to use?

    How did you attach the small return? I'm guessing nails would split it

    Interesting stuff for me Jon. We don't do anywhere near as much trim work in the UK. I wish we did, it's a really satisfying part of the job.

    Jon, Great video. Thank you! Are you working on new construction there? The Windsor trim is very attractive. I guess the Bosch saw is working out well.

    Hello, I have a question, I see you use nails in a lot of your projects, again in this one on the trim, but how do you cover them up ?
    Thank you.

    Nice video Jon. For generations things were done a certain way, and today not many were taught in the same manner so a lot of times the new way is accepted as being correct, maybe some are. It’s nice that you take your time and effort to show how things should be .

    THATS "SASHCO" FOR CAULK THAT STRETCHES "BIG"

    So after you smoothed out the caulk at the top of the baseboard…how do you ensure that caulk smear on the paint isn’t visible? I feel like you either have to come back and paint over it or use painters tape in the first place to avoid that. Any tips??

    Very helpful. What about the nail holes in the trim? Do you caulk those as well or just use spackle/wood filler and paint?

    You shouldn’t use your finger to do chalking! With a lath plane the end to a 45 angle, dip in water and shape chalking to a finish

    Do you ever use Spackle for areas to large for caulking? Caulking cannot be sanded, so I've heard of people using spackle so that they can sand it into shape. Also, do you caulk before or after primer? Most people caulk after, primer helps seal the bare wood reducing moisture being taken out of the caulk when applied, as well as primer is typically sanded so having caulk applied before priming just creates problems.

    Great video. Thanks.

    One of the qualities that is really great about Big Stretch is that it is chemically friendly with mineral oil unlike silicone caulk. I found out about silicone caulk and mineral oil not co-habitating the hard way when we installed a teak kitchen counter. The contractor used silicone caulk and we treated the counter with mineral oil initially and regularly to maintain it. The silicone caulk shriveled up and looked terrible, lost all qualities for which you use it except some adherence. I had to remove it all which was a very difficult, tedious job. Neither the contractor nor the architects had ever heard of the problems with silicone and mineral oil. I researched many, many products until I found Big Stretch. I performed some experiments and found it got along just fine with mineral oil. The only problem is that it is water based. Getting it to dry and cure around the sink is an ongoing struggle we are still coping with. But, I hope anyone else thinking of using wood in a similar environment might benefit knowing this in advance. Great videos, by the way!

    Good tips, Jon! I need to check that caulk out. I've been using a DAP caulk, but I'm seeing some cracks and splits in the crown moulding after just 3 years.

    Jon, you are the reason I became really interested in woodworking. I was a hairdresser for 15 years, now a nurse for about 4 years. Your videos make woodworking so easy, so I began buying some tools and built some little projects. I realized it is Not so easy for a beginner! I made so many mistakes !!! I will stick to nursing for a living but on my spare time I will be enjoying building stuff after watching your videos!! Thanks for being a great teacher and sharing your tips and tricks!
