2020-Sep-12 - Wooroloo - Back Wall #47
On Saturday I dismantled the scaffolding and stored it away.

This took much of the day.

By mid afternoon I was ready to start installing the vertical architraves.

I have one door frame where the cladding is protruding much further than I would like and I need to treat this architrave carefully.

Firstly I am rebating the architrave by 4 mm (and 10 mm near the top) and then rasping back the lobes of the cladding in a few places as well.

On Sunday, Jim lent me his power filer and I found this very useful.

I used it on this most problematical architrave and then returned it to him - I did not want to use it for hours and hours.

It was 2.00 pm by now and I decided I would stop for the day, go to Bunnings and buy a cheap corded version.

After a visit to Bunnings, I veged out for the rest of the day.


Not a very efficient day - but I managed to file back the lobes on the cladding for 3 more positions.

The power sander worked very well and made the job much quicker.

Only 6 more to go.
