    Re: Finished Cabinet Door Source

    Sorry David, I missed your reply. I have only used their doors unfinished (Alder with a plywood panel), but they were pretty well sanded and square. I had them painted to match on the job. They do...

    Ditto for me. This specific application (cutting back baseboard, in my case to make room for new, wider casing on a sizable job) is what I bought this tool for. I always use a fresh blade on critical...

    Re: Cutting fiberglass columns

    I agree with Lavrans. The biggest challenge here, assuming you have or can access a track saw, is going to be holding the flat rail on the round stock. I don't envy you, just thinking about that much...

    I've also had good luck in So.Cal with the Cetol finish on some exterior doors I've built in both Mahogany and VG Fir.

    I know a lot of guys like the Colt, I hate it. I think the way the depth adjustment works is a terrible design flaw. My friend Mick has a fix that he says works well, which I am going to try.

    An idea area is a great plan, Gary. I do have a couple pictures of crown and base wrapping a bullnose corner because it's something hard for lay people to visualize from a spoken description.
