Re: The no-swear approach to cutting crown molding

I could write a book about this tool, but that book would be summarized by saying that, when properly used in combination with some production methods, this tool will help you install crown faster and tighter than any other method, and with any crown, on any angled wall to boot.

Re: 2009 Deck Code Changes - Pay Attention!

willsdad, Typically in a situation like the one you're mentioning, where you have to install a drag tie to a joist, but the joists are parallel to the ledger, you would install blocking to catch the tie. The blocking would usually have to be nailed to the floor diaphragm, which would of course present its own problems if the interior floor was already finished. In that case, a row of blocks running several bays into the structure, tied together with Simpson or equivalent strapping, would take the place of a joist.
