Slideshow: Wrap-Around Fascia

To complete the ceiling, we added fascia trim to the vertical edge of the false-ceiling perimeter in both the living and dining areas. All the corners required miter joints difficult to execute accurately in place, so we again resorted to preassembly on the floor and lifting into place.

Here, Liam McCooe plunge-cut mortise slots with Domino joiner.

Next, he glued in the Domino tenons (left) and joined the two sections with a rubber mallet (right). For all the gluing on the job, we used a Glu-Bot glue bottle from FastCap. It works in any direction, upside down, vertically, horizontally, etc. It’s a good tool to have in your finish carpentry arsenal.

Liam used Clam Clamps to hold the joint together while the glue set up.

Later, he back-screwed the joints (left), which completed the connection (right).

We got the crew together and lifted the completed fascia assembly into place.

The fascia trim was clamped into place prior to fastening; with the bottom edge set an inch below the ceiling drywall.

A narrow, picture-frame trim was run around the fascia to cover the drywall gap and to little more ‘heft’ to the profile (left). We joined mitered corners with the Domino inserts and yellow glue (right).

The picture frame was glued, clamped, and finish-nailed to the fascia in place.
