Topics range from simple picture-framed windows to traditional stool and apron, from mitered casing to built-up classically inspired door heads.

In Mastering the Miter Saw Part 1 & 2, viewers learned essential techniques for cutting casing and baseboard precisely. Follow the natural progression to Installing Casing and Baseboard: learn how to make a cut list, cope inside corners, pre-assemble bullnose corners, and more.

Title: Conquering Crown Molding Fundamentals & Advanced Techniques Part 5 & 6 Author: Gary Katz Running Time: DVD or VHS: DVD # of Pages: Product Code: OS-14252 Price: Copyright date: 2005 ISBN: Description: Installing crown molding is a challenge that every finish carpenter encounters. Nearly every carpenter has their own home-style way of handling it – from making templates and visualizing each cut, to triangulating tangent lines on the ceiling. Avoid long learning curves and cut straight to the fun of crown molding by watching these two programs on Fundamental and Advanced Techniques for installing one of the most dramatic moldings borrowed from the classical orders. These programs begin with a review of basic joinery and making cultists, then move rapidly to larger issues: deciding between miters and copes for insider corners, developing strategies for both simple and complex rooms, and customizing spring angles. Also included is a thorough tutorial on coping techniques, with a special presentation by David Collins, inventory of the Collins Coping Foot, and a special slideshow on using Bill Shaw’s CopeMaster. Precise instruction, in both video, slide shows, and printable articles, includes tried-and-true methods for pre-assembling multiple pieces around columns and bookshelves, for installing crown on cathedral ceilings (learn how to read and cut any angle with just a protractor), and for tackling crown on kitchen cabinets, even if the ceilings are out of level.
