Thanks.  Good info.

Bob Q says:

great video , some times there is no finish point at stairs ect .. so  you can return the cap, base and shoe to its self with an internal 45 either back to the wall or to the floor

Chris Pine says:

It really comes together beautifully!  The small details really add up together to make it look nice!

Hey Jon, you made me look at my shoe moldings that were in my house when I bought it. All 45s cut back. I like the back banding idea so much more. Just found another project to do. Thanks! I think. Lol. Thanks for videos as usual. Bob F

Beautiful work as always! I’ve been remolding my 1940’s home and your videos have been so helpful in giving me that touch of class/professional look that us amateur’s lack

Philip Jones says:

So neat

Hey Jon, great video. Quick Question. I am in the process of installing 5-1/4″ pine base boards to a floated engineered floor. Discovered today that I have dips in some of the floor creating gaps under the base. I never wanted to have any shoe molding but now I am realizing that that may not be possible. Other than scribing every board are there any tricks on how to avoid shoe molding or am I stuck?

You need to wear a microphone, there is to much echo.

Angela Marchbanks says:

Great tips! I am just starting the process of creating a house plan for molding as we tackle projects room by room. I’m putting together a story board so the house stays consistent. Any ideas for door casing with a low ceiling?

Ron Koiles says:

Great stuff.  I would like to see you make a kitchen table.


very good information to know for renovations a new build. I see the big difference attending to detail makes. Thank you Jon.

I like the felt pads on the nail gun to prevent scratches on the finished floor. Sign of a real pro to think of something like that.

Beth S says:

What is the height of the shoe molding? And how high is the baseboard?  Just trying to figure out a right proportion.  We have a 6″ high baseboard with a 1″ cap so 7″ overall.  Just a simple square craftsman style.  I’m thinking this would complete the look better than a rounded shoe.  Thanks!

Very informative Jon, and a very nice job indeed on the mantle – I hope your clients realise how lucky they are to have commissioned you. I am, of course, assuming that this wasn’t a “love job” – of which, I am sure, you have more than your fair share. 😉
