Tile instead of brick

Tile instead of brick

I built this for a customer who didn't like all the brick, or the skimpy mantel shelf.   The transformation was pretty dramatic

Re: Is Hitachi a fading brand?

Hate to say it, but Hitachi tools are not what they used to be. I have the older 10" chop saw that is nice and portable, been beat up but still works and is accurate. Looked at the newer version and it is cheap and flimsy. Also costs less, so I guess in this case you get what you pay for, but it's getting harder to find good quality at a reasonable price (not super cheap, and not Festool either)

Re: The no-swear approach to cutting crown molding

I think these tools are great, if a bit pricey, especially for large crown you can only cut on the flat. One thing they won't help you with though is when your ceiling has a slope in it. This adds another dimension that these devices don't take into account. It rare that I install crown on cabinets and don't find at least once place where the ceiling isn't level.
