I am in the trim stage of making my 1970's house look like it was built 100
Here is a pic of my first trimmed out window,
With a shot of the detail,
The ceiling in the bathroom is very low, in the rest of the house the board
between the top fillet and the top trim will be 4" and not 3/4"
I started with rough sawn boards and milled everything myself.
One window down, dozens of windows and doors to do....
Thank you for looking,
Every Neighbourhood has one, in Mine I'm Him
The trim is just fitted in place for now, it will be finished. I will be
testing some finishes in the next few days. As the late Paul Rad. would say,
practice on some scrap, or you are practicing on your project.

...nice work indeed! The real problem is not in the woodwork, but how
it lays against the ceiling. I run into this kind of thing, in the
micro, when running crown and the best fix is to float the ceiling in
to the trimwork...that gets costly, so I usually end up caulking it
all in, then the *painting* becomes the problem (as it always is...how
many times have I heard a painter say, "...it's OK, we'll make it look
good!" ...and usually *I'm* the painter, LOL). Yours looks to be
gapping a little much for caulk, though...
