    Finally got the hang of the 'intersect command'

    So, I figured it would be better to figure out how to do a 3 way molding joint by doing it in sketchup first.

    Well, it took me a little while, but I finally go the hang of the intersect tool.

    Now if I can only make it work with the real moldings...

    Enjoy.

    My wife went to her mother's for the evening. Ian and I were supposed to go but I'm not feeling great and Ian has a fever and cough. Great way to spend Christmas.

    Ooof, Sick on Christmas eve. Not a good way to spend it. You have my sympathies.

    I try not to ever leave the house during the winter anymore. I haven't been sick in several years.

    Sharon and I are watching an episode of BattleStar Galactica, then switching over to the Tim Allen Santa Clause movies in a little while.

    Have a good time.

    I hate getting sick but it seems impossible to avoid with a kid in school.

    sq cut the first one into the corner than cope the second one into it and the third into them. Easy as pie.
    I would run out to the shop and show ya how but i am to lazy to do that at this hour and I have not figured out taptalk yet so no pics from me until I do.
    It could be worse You could be on fire.

    If it was 2, I'd cope it. It's that third cove molding that has me stymied. Probably need to make some test pieces before I go for it.
