Transoms or windows needs to be trimmed out like every other window. The trim is nailed straight to the window jamb. In the event the molding isn’t customized to the window, the molding should be mitered several degrees on each and every end and butted together so that it follows the arch 4 inch expose involving the window jamb as well as the molding. Test parts of the molding are cut until the right angle is available, and after that the same angle is used by every one of the parts.
Cut five parts of the window – . Set the miter saw angle -degree angle. Cut miters on the ends of all pieces.
Turn the molding 180-levels. Cut miters on another end of all pieces except one. Each conclusion should have a reverse miter.
Stack the items on the window jamb. Start using the piece which you did not miter on the bottom. Stack them up, matching the miters together so they form a curve. Place them 1/4 inch in the edge of the window jamb. Check the level of the curve in terms of the window jamb.
Adjust the angle to 8 levels in the event the curve is also broad, and trim each of the miters. In the event the angle is too shallow adjust the angle to 1-2 levels. Stack all the items again. Check the level of the curve. Until the items follow the curve of the window adjust the angle as required.
Cut five pieces of molding utilizing the angle which you decided on. Place the piece. Run a bead of construction adhesive across the trunk. Place it to the widow 4 inch expose involving the fringe of of the window jamb as well as the fringe of of the molding.
Shoot two-pin nails spaced through the piece. Run a bead of adhesive on the trunk of the piece that is next. Stack it matching the miters up. Shoot two-pin nails through it. Continue on in this manner with the three items.
Before you’ve got completed the curve, cut and install the items individually. Alter the angle onepiece in a time to keep up with the integrity of the curve in the event the curve starts to wander from the window jamb, or get also near the window jamb.
Putty the miter as well as the nail holes joints having a putty knife as well as a wood dough. Sand the molding using a bit of 100-grit sand-paper folded in thirds.
