Craftsman-Style Casing

Clean lines and balanced proportions are the key ingredients for this classic trim treatment

The simple elegance of the Craftsman style has fueled its popularity for more than 100 years. Boston-area finish carpenter Tucker Windover outlines his method for installing Craftsman-style window casing, starting with a discussion (and illustrations) of how he develops an appropriate design; Craftsman style has no specific rules for window casing, only the need to keep the dimensions proportional to the room they're in. Windover provides advice on the best way to choose and prepare lumber for stain-grade Craftsman-style casings, and how to solve construction problems that frequently become the trim carpenter's headache.
