Default Built out windows

Have a job coming up on an exterior where carpenter has built out existing wood window trim with 2x2's on a cinder block home. Reason for so that bricklayers can apply stone and window trim will protrude out over it.Homeowners dont really want caulk where the trim butts together.They want it to look like one whole piece instead.Any suggestions?Thought about some epoxy but afraid without reinforcing crack with something 1st it might move in time and crack itself? Thanks.

Are they to be stained or painted? Bondo will pop. I'm assuming some type of pine? If the carpenter picture framed the trim, primed the backside and edges with some oil and threw a few extra nails near the breaks it would certainly help.

I've heard of sawdust and some type of adhesive being used to fill, but in order to have zero visible breaks on something exterior that is going to expand and contract with the weather and moisture content..I'm not positive.

If the carpenter opted to picture frame the trim with a mix of face nailing and hiding some along the edges, it's easier to hide the breaks. You're kind of at the carpenters/mother natures mercy in order to completely hide the seams.

Try an oil based glazing or ask someone else about that sawdust concoction..Glazing takes forever to dry and its not really meant for sanding.. Interior is a different story. I think you'll be doing a bunch of sanding no matter what you come up with.

It's an unschooled HO that thinks they know everything. They want to know everything & direct their project.

Try schooling the HO on the natural law of expansion & contraction and that what ever you do to make them disappear will eventually fail in the end causing unnecessary spending on of labor with with cost to him or you...

This will then help you provide an effective solution for both long lasting ability & within a reasonable budget for the project.

You can't make two pieces of wood act as one. There will be movement where they meet.
