Jon, I'll second the use of spackle for holes, after priming if bare wood.

The problem with using spackle in joints is that it cracks in time. Do the best you can with the caulk to mask imperfect joints. As to caulk, I've never had much luck with Alex brand, just MO. I use one of the paint cos line of siliconized blends, not silicone, siliconized. I stay away from "painters" caulk.

Clown Free, At Last huh?

Yes, I fell under the spell of that evil clown master--Sdsester. And then Matt1970 succumbed as well. However, I've broken free. Sds has taken his evil clown avatar down as well, but that's just a front.

Since this trim is s4s can I paint it with a small roller or should I use a angled sash?

Looking at SW Snowbound as trim color. Thanks
