We’ve been working on an all PVC deck skirting the last few days. It’s a little more time consuming then your basic PT lattice and frames but looks ten times better! #tightmiters #carpenter #carpentry #stabila #carpentrycanada #novascotia #halifax #iloverenovations #apprentice #carpenterapprentice #craftsman #miter #trim #contractor #keepthecraftalive #millwork #builder #homerenovation #renovate #remodel #finishcarpentry

Koulu alkoi viikko sitten opettajien koulutuspäivillä. Tokana päivänä Mika Waltarin -koululla törmäsin oppilaiden kanssa tekemäämme Yhtenäiskoulun lahjaan uudelle alakoulullemme. Ei saatu kaisloja, joten tuunasime puuta. Schools have started a week ago here in Finland too. 🇫🇮 Teachers had two prepping days before students came. Second day I saw our school's present to our new Mika Waltari-school. The boat was students and teacher team effort from three years ago. 😂☀️😎 #ryhmätyö #teameffort #käsityö #monimateriaalinenkäsityö #tekninentyö #kässäonkivaa #laivanrakennus #shipbuilding #technologyeducation #stem #woodworking #mikawaltarinkoulu #mikawaltari #kaislavene #sinuheegyptiläinen #reedboats #keepthecraftalive #shopclass #modelmaking @osmocolorsuomi #osmocolor

I'm on a job site today. Normally I don't get involved in the application process. But this is a special situation. It's a Dream Home for the Parade of Homes tour in Minneapolis/St. Paul and I there just isn't enough time in this abbreviated schedule to guide the finishers/painters through this process. So I offered to do the challenging pieces. This is Mahogany and over the next two days you will witness what is possible without having to use a conventional stain or finish.

So proud of my niece @brynnstorhoff for doing a fantastic job building her own planter box and making it to state. .

This was such a great experience with Marvin Windows and Doors and This Old House. I am truly grateful for the chance to be a part of this. I am always wanting to learn best practice and hone my craft. It was great to see a community culture at Marvin that I want to emulate! I met a group of guys committed to the trades and their craft and have formed new friendships. And of course, it was great to meet and learn from the legendary Tom Silva who knows his stuff. We all share the common goal to keep our craft alive and growing and set our sights on best practice. Thank you Marvin for this wind in my sails! #marvinwindows #thisoldhouse #stl #laddsuydamcontracting #generalcontractor #bestpractices #keepthecraftalive #tradeschool

Anyone else ever check product compatibility? We’ve tested Grace Ice and Water, GAF Stormguard, Grace Vycor, Tyvek Straightflash, Protecto Wrap, and more with eachother and all with OSI Quad Max. For a few months now they have not shown to be incompatible and the OSI hasn’t reacted with any of the flashing tapes other than showing some slight discoloration. •

Sometimes what you thought was a mistake turns out to be a amazing finishing detail.
Normally I would wait to drill the holes in the treads till after the handrail is set that way everything lines up. But I jumped the gun and it was near the end off the day and I was trying to finish without making any major mess before I went home so I could do one good clean.
When I started working on this side the next day I knew I had made a mistake by not thinking the handrail would have to bump in to clear the wall. So that's when the creativity kicked in. The end result looks amazing and you would never know it wasn't intentional!!

100+ year old reclaimed fir beams we're milling up today. Digging the iron staining left behind from the old nails. What do you think of this look?

I work on job sites where I see the best new ways of building with the best construction companies in our area. Today I saw the Zip System, air space strips for siding, pvc board, boral trim, copper sill flashing and liquid flashing. A lot of these things won’t be seen when the project is done but it makes it last a long time @atchisonheller @fultonfinewoodworks #keepthecraftalive #carpentry #woodworking #finehomebuilding #apprentice

Drywall is definitely one of my least favorite things to do. Still satisfying when the mud starts going on, until the sanding starts.

Spent Saturday putting up some ash trim for my amazing mother Inlaw. Had lots of fun doing it.

Behind the scenes
we work with amazing materials and incredible machines that require years of knowledge and a lot of maintenance 😓 haha. -
Here we have a beautiful foil stamping die for @cultexhibitions cards we recently foil stamped ✨ It’s an honor to work with the people who have dedicated their time to the craft and art of printing, and an honor to work with these tools 🙏
