Kootenay Kwickie – How to mess up your fascia in two easy steps!

Step 1: Build your benchwork

Step 2: Put your fascia on it poorly.

Okay, here’s the dealio. I tried to use 1/4″ hardboard for my fascia as it would be stronger, probably wouldn’t crack as easily, and curve more smoothly…but long story short, I tried to curve it too sharply. Don’t try to bend 1/4″ any sharper than an 18″ radius, and even then, only if you’re sure it’s nice and smooth.

Your inside corners might look okay…

Outside corners? Most certainly not.

So that was my attempt at finishing off the lower deck. Whoops. Learn from my mistakes so you don’t have to make them yourselves, lovely people!
