A favorite quote of Mine: "The first 90% of the job takes 90% of the time, the last 10% of the job takes the OTHER 90% of the time."
I have baseboard stained and varnished. I had backband stained and varnished and yesterday Pete and I put up backband around the door casing we had installed. The salvaged backband was enough to do the bathroom, laundry, and hallway sides of the bedroom doors. Here's how it looks:
We also put backband around the window in the sitting room.
With this completed we can start to put baseboard up in the sitting room and the hallways.
Last night Carl, my neighbor, delivered more backband that he milled from 5/4 stock that I had. This should be just about enough to do the bedroom doors on the inside. I'll need to start staining and varnishing again...
