This weekend was devoted to mimicking the original base cap in the closet and finishing off the base trim. All that is left is the door trim and the closet will be complete. Creating the base cap wasn’t all that difficult, and it’s a reasonable facsimile of the original. I used my table saw to resaw a 1×8 into 3/8 or so inch thick strips. Then I used my planer to plane them down to approximately 3/16″. By laminating the strips I was able to easily bend them to fit the curve and build up the profile. The cap was finished off with a small piece of half-round. I’m pleased with the results and even more glad that no more curved wood is in my immediate future (knock on wood [no pun intended])!
How can such a tiny room suck up so much of my time????
