I completed the corner trim on Saturday. At first I was going to just butt the edges  up against each other, but then I asked myself, what would Norm Abram do?

He would miter the edges of the trim.

I ask myself WWNAD a lot. Like the advice the angel on my right shoulder gives me, often I disregard it as inconvenient or too difficult. This time, however, I decided to go with it and miter the edges of my trim pieces. Ripping and mitering at the same time usually doesn't work well for me. Luckily it turned out ok and I didn't lose any fingers.

This is where I didn't follow Norm's advice. He would nail the boards together at the mitered joint and then attach to the shed. Hey, man, it's just a shed. No need for perfection.

There's a completed corner. It looks good from a distance.

All four corners done. And I did it in one day.

Another view. Gettin' dark...

I like the paint job... it looks like bars on a old skool stereo equalizer... like you are listening to The Scorpions "Rock You Like A Hurricane"
