I have 3 sides of my garden shed that have trim consisting of 2 boards nailed together in a right angle.


I have removed a portion of the 2 boards on one side. Now I want to splice in a new set of 2 pieces.


The thickness of the existing wood is 1 3/16" and when I went to purchase some wood it was much thicker. I don't have access to a plane or a table saw so I was wanting to know what anyone might suggest I do. Since, the splice will be uneven with the rest of the trim if I use the lumber I have access to.


I am not opposed to furring something out but don't see any furring strips less than 1" thick.


I am sorry I don't know how to make the pictures the correct orientation. They were correct on my desktop.


The first picture is of the garden shed and you can see the far left wood trim near the lattice is rotten. The second picture is what it looks like after I cut out the rotten wood. The 3rd picture is how it looks before the rotten wood is cut out.


Please tell me how to fix these rotten trim boards by not having to remove the entire boards.



Thanks,


Randal

Thanks everyone for the suggestions, it seems that I need finished lumber that will have to be planed down to 1 3/16" thickness.


Otherwise, I will need to remove all of the trim and start over with normal thickness boards.


Not sure what I will do but your suggestions were helpful.

Exaggerate it, make plinth blocks to fill in. Make the plinths thicker than the boards there now and cut a slight chamfer on the front edge to dress it off. something like in the photo below.
