After the framing is done, it's time for the trim carpenters to do their work inside the house. Frequently, they're called on to do work to compensate for places where the framing is unsightly. In this "Master Carpenter" article, Boston-area finish carpenter Tucker Windover outlines his process for resolving issues when installing trim around stairs and when trim designs conflict. Windover illustrates how to do continuous crown and how to use a continuous cap to tie a stringer to a baseboard. This article also includes sidebars about how to level a wall so that the chair rail can be installed properly and how to use a miter-saw jig for cutting obscure angles.
