Measure once, cut twice, no that’s not right, measure twice cut twice? Hmmmm. Oh yeah, measure twice cut once!

In today’s video I install the pine bead board wainscotting for my bathroom remodel. And I discover after matching it up, no less than 3 times on the bench, there is a HUGE variation between bench measurements, and applying to the wall. 3/16” to be exact….

And we solve a little problem with the lower edge trying to warp away from the wall. This was fixed with plenty of additional liquid nails, and a box of Bai Coconut Fusion beverages.

A few more steps and we are ready for paint!

So here’s the link. Sorry no embed, the mobile browsers can’t see the flash used for embedding here, and the security risk isn’t worth it….

It has been a while since I used liquid nails, but that is an obvious good choice for the project. Isn’t it strange how bench and site measurements seem to always differ a bit. I have used all kinds of kludges over the years to solve problems like that, and fortunately, with a little filler, sanding, and paint, the result comes out OK.

Regarding the critique you got of using bead board, meaning dated. It implies that one always should or want to be like everybody else. It is kind of like my hair cut. I have cut it the same since I was in grade school. Every 10 years or so it comes back into style. I just get it cut to suit my needs, rather than slavishly following some style. Nowadays, people are becoming more individualistic, rather than being fad followers. I see that as a good thing.

Just getting back in the groove in Anchorage. Finally got my three office computers all up to the latest and greatest Windows 10. Now I have to get the portable and my wife’s computer to the same point.

Cold and snowy here. Getting the winter tires on my car today.
