Seriously hard wood to cut. We’re using oak in the living room because we plan to stain all the new/existing wood in there. But despite the pain of cutting we’ve gotten the ‘main’ baseboards up and cut on two of the walls…
There’s a cap and shoe piece that goes with the main board you see here, but this is the only piece needed for electrical outlets:
Furring strips on the original plaster wall behind the baseboard. Notice anything… Red in the background here? You really don’t want to know what’s happening on our south wall.
More on that little birthday gift from our house later.
