Just bought this Paslode cordless framing nail gun today. This ought to make my home projects go a lot smoother (I hope). I'm no good at all with a hammer. Lot's of memories of missing the nails with it.

You've never given me any reason to hate you, Brian, so don't start now.

I have so much invested in compressors and air tools, that I can't justify the $$, but they are tres cool. Have fun!

With the assistance of many pneumatic and electric tools, I just finished building a mantel for the fireplace in our living room. Mrs. Classic has been bugging for years for the thing and I finally caved. I'm having trouble with posting pics directly from our Mac site, so if anyone (ahem, ... Peter...) can help educate me in this regard, I'd appreciate it. Any way, here is the link to the site. Only 3 pics to scroll thru...

The "easiest" way I grab direct links to images hosted on a me.com site it to use the Web Inspector that's part of Safari's Developer mode. I was able to grab links to your pics with it. Unfortunately, you can't show picture in your post since the URL doesn't end with an image file extension.

Thanks! Santos Mahogany. Got it on "clearance" from Lumber Liquidators jsut after Katrina. For a product marked clearance in the showroom, the data of manufacture on the box was 4 days before it arrived at my house, hence the tremendous cupping. Not happy about that, but we just tell everyone it's "hand carved" wink

Peter, thanks! And thanks!... That's what a kept getting, too; non-extension ending links that wouldn't show the image directly. eliminating the rest of the phrase results in nothing...

Thanks again.

Thanks, Tom. It only took 4 extra trips to get more lumber due to the cutting mistakes, making the project ~$100 more than it should have cost. I was used to single profile crown molding and unknowingly picked up some double profile. It's supposed to cut down on the scrap. Supposedly all one has to do after a corner cut is flip the board over and cut the opposite bevel and the scrap is a 1/2" wide sliver rather than a 5" wide "V" shaped scrap. Who Knew? Apparently not me! The other expensive mistake was the dentil piece at $30 a stick, I marked the top of the board for the width I needed rather than the bottom... All rookie moves, but I haven't done wood working like this in over 5 years. The finished product looks nice and Mrs. Classic couldn't be happier - 5 years of hinting and bugging finally paid off for her.
