Working on the Bay

There is a better picture of the bay further down.  The bay originally had windows in the middle-TOO MANY WINDOWS.  So I asked RGT to send me the cut outs and I glued them back in.  I am glueing clapboard on the bay.  WORD OF ADVICE:  glue the clapboard over part of the window and saw the window space out (((((((((GENTLY))))))))))).  I am always learning.  I use Loctite wood glue.  Great stuff.
These are the pieces of molding I used to cover over the space where the clapboard meets.  It is hard to tell, but I used two chair rails and a quarter round on top.  Looks great.  OH LOOK, THERE IS THE GLUE.  I glued the chair rails first and taped, when dry then lifted the tape and glued the quarter round, then retaped.

This shows the other joint covered in tape while the glue drys.  It is hard to see the molding.  If you look bottom left it shows up pretty good.
