Oak trimming her new foyer.


Thanks YM.... I'm glad you noticed that.... I think I'll rip out a thin oak frame for the thick edge and paint the fins in the middle black. It should blend right in that way!

I think that would look great, but won't it make it to high, and then you would trip over it?

...yeah, I agree with yummy, the floor 'thingy' looks grey, but anything more raised would become an obstacle. What about something more copper colored?

When I'm done, it'll be less that a quarter of an inch high, so it should be fine.

Gosh, a quarter of an inch still seems like a lot. The cover plate pictured in post #10 from yesterday looks like it's only one floor plank away from the wall in a safe enough spot, but the picture in #3 posted on the 24th looks like it's more in the middle of the floor somewhere. Is that correct- are there more than one air vent? If one is more in a traffic flow area, that quarter inch could be a problem. I know I trip over less height than that on a sidewalk!

It's just the one, one plank away from the wall in a safe spot, yup. It's just shot at different angles.
I trimmed out one in 3/4" oak before I tore down that part of the old home. It was not tripped over.
But this one will be rounded edges and very low profile, so I think it'll be fine since it's out of the 'normal walking path.'
I'll be working on it today, so I'll try to get more pics up.

I gotta agree, it does look much better this way.
The wife agrees.

Here's a side view of how I ripped the pieces.
I used PL Construction Adhesive to glue the pieces to the register cover.

Wow, that's thin! The part over the register cover is only about 1/16th of an inch then? It's just a sliver. It's still strong enough though, huh? I'm sure no one will trip over it! It really looks nice.

DM, that looks absolutely fabulous.
Very nicely finished!

But now, I have a problem with the colour of the little grills. Too dark.
You need to paint them brown.

You have a real wife, and then you have the internet wife, that tells you what she wants........
