Topic tags/keywords: coping coping cuts baseboards base boards inside corners outside corners cutting angles

I’m about to redo the molding through out my wife’s house that we rent. Never done it before, so I went to youtube to watch some videos. I saw this and thought it wa interesting – certainly never knew of this technique. So I wanted to share. Check it out.

Just an update – while I did not use the dreme tool as suggested in the video, after watching this video I finally (for the first time) understood how to cope. In the baseboard project I’m currently in, I’ve had great success coping these joints and the look as if I “knew what I was doing.”

Now if I could just learn to cope with my wife!!

No dremel usage on the wife!

Never used dremel either, just a coping saw and rasp if needed.. Oh, and caulk ;)

Have your say...
