measurement of needed trim quantities up to the builder...
but what happens when that estimate proves inaccurate?
There's got to be a an efficient method of measurement
that provides you with consistent and correct results.

the complex construction of a curved corbel. Trouble has
arisen in the trimming...

Surely, putting a bead profile on a curved piece of wood
can be done, but technique aside... what is the right tool
for the job?

How to match these new maple cabinets to a customer's
existing set? It's all in the pickling.
