Oak trimming her new foyer.
1 Attachment(s)
I'm working on the foyer now. I got the teak flooring put down, now I'm creating oak trim from rough-sawn 1" planks. Cut to rough size, planed, routed, sanded and poly'd! I LIKE the countersunk black drywall screw look, and it makes it easy to paint/repair the walls if needed. I had to rip some thin oak strips to get the trim to line up right, but I think it turned out well. I should probably get off this thing now and make some more baseboards......

It's looking good! Can we see a close-up picture of the floor in front of the door..... senor *imaginary squiggly line above the 'n'*

Well, OK.... but I had to sweep up my mess first!

The register vent was real 'fun' to get lined up right.

I'll certainly remember the lessons learned if/when I do more flooring.....

Wow, that looks nice DM. You did a great job on it.

About how big of an area did you get out of that teak?

The room is 9' x 5'. But I swear there's a big box of it we can't find!

Thanks Barb!

Here's how I trimmed out the inside window today, tomorrow I do the other side the same way.


DangerMouse 01-26-2011 04:13 PM

Oh yeah.... and I made a real nice transition strip for the front door.

Pics tomorrow maybe.... if I remember.....

Here's the half-wall (wainscot?) I'm putting on the lower half of the foyer to help keep it waterproof. So far, so good.

In the other picture, the dog wanted that for dessert, but we had to say no.....

Our dog used to like eating out of the cat pan too. :laughing:

The wall is looking great DM. It will stay nice looking much longer than drywall would.

"cat pan" *sheesh* :laughing:

Man, all that looks great DM, I really like the color also. Are you planning to run a bull nose on top of the wainscoting?

DangerMouse 01-28-2011 11:13 AM

yup, it's in the picture...? Although, it's now 2" thick instead of 3". It just looked too "fat". LOL
I have custody of the camera today, so I can post a pic soon.

Great job Danger, but I am coming over to change that heating grill, thingy....It looks grey to me, and I think it would look much better if the colour was closer to the flooring shade. Unless you are trying to showcase your heating
