I Can't See a Thing!

I just got this email from my internet service provider:

Dear Personal Web Space User,

Due to multiple server issues, your personal web space has been created anew on a new server. Due to the nature of this issue, your personal web space could not be restored from a backup. Unfortunately, you will have to reload your web pages so you can share them.

What this means is none of the images I put into my posts from 2005 until last summer are now visible. I guess I'll have to sort through all my multiple files of pictures to reload them and relink them through blogger.

I guess I needed another project?

Some Trim Cuts I CAN do successfully!

In my last post I neglected to mention or display the trim cuts I can do successfully. Here is the new bump out before I started trimming it:

The baseboard was left over from when I did the upstairs 3 years ago, I had stashed two pieces away in the office closet. Here is the exterior miter:

The piece behind the room door to the right fit nicely, however on the closet door side, There was only 1/2 an inch between the wall and the backband, so I had to mark a line, saw down 1/4 of an inch, then chisel out so the baseboard would fit snugly to the wall:

And here it is in place:

The base shoe was saved from when we had to work on the dining room wall.

I hit the edge of the baseboard miter with a little stain and it looks great.
