How to Install Window Trim
Like most veteran carpenters, I’ve trimmed hundreds—maybe even thousands—of windows. So trimming out a window is second nature to me. But when I see windows that were trimmed by a rookie or watched rookies trim a window, I realize it’s not quite as easy for others.
The truth is, I rarely even use a tape measure. Nope, it’s all done by eye, using a sharp pencil, a miter saw and an 18-gauge nailer. I’ll show you how to pull off a window trim job that’ll look every bit as good as a vets—without hours of frustration. We’re working with standard trim, between 3/8 and1/2 inch thick.
