Dad Kiker has been producing trim by the boatload. He is using a special blade attachment that we think came with the saw about 50 years ago. It is probable this is their first use!

We bought some very cheap pine boards, put a four-line groove in them and then bevel the edges. We've been testing some stain options which failed miserably at first due to the softness of the wood and blotchy results. But the Minwax "PolyShades" polyurethane with stain mixed in it seems to be creating a more uniform look. We'll try to get just the right color and begin production this weekend.
