This is the class Gary has always wanted to teach at MASW, so last summer we gave it a try and the class was a huge success. Because of the demand Gary has agreed to do it for a second straight summer. Students will be working with full size wall mockups to learn the skills Gary uses every day on the job site to trim a home along with many of the special elements for which he is known. The class will be totally hands-on, but there will be times where students will be assigned to groups for specific exercises in how to make then install curved trims, the steps to install doors, tricks to cutting and installing crown molding, how to build a panel door jamb, ways to create well-proportioned crown molding details and options for pediment details over doors and cabinets. Gary will also demonstrate six options for making wainscot paneling, which is probably the most requested trim application asked for by his customers. He will show ways to get the most from your miter saw plus the tricks to making complex angle, bevel and compound miter cuts. Students will also learn how to build window jambs and sills that add distinction to those elements. He will also review three trim options for doors. If you have ever admired the craftsmanship displayed in a beautiful room with amazing trim details, you have to take this class. During the week students will hone their skills while building a mirror frame and display shelf to take home. By the end of the week you will know how to create an amazing room of your own.
