I've read this before and got some good information from it.

The link doesn't last forever so have a good read before it goes 404.

Thanks, handymac, I forgot which forum I was in. Some automatically create hyperlinks with URLs entered.

I think this is a great primer for basic trim carpentry 101. It leaves out, from what I saw, what I consider the most basic rule without which all else fails and that is "Patience".

YEP! And when all else fails, I sleep on it... even if it takes 2 nights, to prove I am indeed smarter that the problem. If it were only that simple with kids...HUH?
