Hi! This is Jon on behalf of Expert Village. In this video clip, we will be attaching our trim. When setting up to attach our trim, we first need to set up our clamp, our side and our trim piece. Next we are going to run a bead of glue down the side of our trim and we are going to spread that around so that it will hold just a little bit better. Once that glue has been spread around, we are going to flip up our trim piece and pull it close to our clamps. Next we are going to secure our clamp and tighten that down and you want to leave just a little bit of a lip above and below because we are going to trim that off later. After that we are going to put a couple of pin nails in place just to hold that trim securely so we can take our clamps off sooner and move on to the next piece a little bit quicker. Once you've got that trim pin nailed on, you can take a damp paper towel and wipe off any excess glue.
