I had a friend see the trim that I crafted for my house and he liked it so well that he wanted me to make his look exactly the same. So I went to my local wood supplier and bought another 300 foot of red oak at $1 per board foot. Same great price!! I took it home and started planing and carving once again. It was a little more complicated for his house since he had a bay window and two huge windows on the front of his house. But it all went together nicely. I ended up doing 6 windows for him. He liked the outcome so well that he now wants all of his baseboards and door trim done downstairs and 13 more windows upstairs.

That really dresses the window up nicely. Great job.
