A miscalculation here. I planned my window and door bucks and the metal cap flashing assuming the trim would be 3/4-inch thick. Wrong! Trim comes in 5/4-inch standard. If I’d left the trim at 5/4-inch then it would have protruded too far out forcing me to extend the metal flashing.
So I had to rip the trim down to 3/4-inch on a table saw.
I assembled the trim on a workshop table, glued and tacked them together using butterfly clips Then installed the trim in one piece like a picture frame. It’s easier to get the miters good and true this way rather than putting it together piece by piece on a vertical surface.
Gable End Detail
As it’s a historic structure I needed to add a gable detail back in.
