Re: Re rec.woodworking/Making crown molding

Stephen,
That is a damned fine piece of work!
In the picture of the unfinished mouldings, do I detect pocket hole screw holes. ( the pics arrived in the reverse order to their descriptions ((confused me slightly)), however, it's pic 2, as it's the middle of 3) or is this simply an effect of cutting, possibly across a knot in the wood (three distinct marks to the base of left strip)? if it was pocket hole tech, did you dowel the holes ion the final fixing? I was looking for the 'tell tale' round dowel marks in the final pic, but didn't note any!
Fantastic work! I loved the finished product. (excuse my cross posting, friends, I hope it's permitted?)

Thankyou.
Sorry 'bout that, OE does it's best to confuse me into getting it backwards.
however, it's pic 2, as it's the middle of 3) or

The molding on the left has screw holes because I used recyled spruce fron the old foor frame (free, straight-grained, knot free and eay to sand.). Those screw holes were from the original door hinges. I milled the cap molding (the double profile on the right) out of new maple as it would be much more exposed to being smacked.
The moldings are all attached with a bit of glue and an 18 gauge brad nailer.
Regards,
Steve
