Corners When doing baseboard

8 posts in this topic

I am considering doing some new baseboard in my house, and am wondering about outside corners. I helped my buddy do his last week, and it was a pain cutting, and re cutting outside corners to get them to look good. I was think about using these. Any thoughts? Are they in style anymore? It would make cutting the corners easy, but i'm not sure if they're "in style" anymore...

I think they look nice, and are a ton easier than trying to 45 everything.

Those are made to match old style base,they can be used with new but they may look abit large in comparison to standard base.

A bit of practice and your outside corners will improve!

You have to cut your outside corners over a 45 a few degrees and inside corners are coped with a backcut.

I think they make outside corners like that. they just have a notch out of one side or you could cut out on a table saw.

Those are the only way to go they look clean and will save you a ton of time. If you dont like the height of them you can cut them down a little.

    • Inevitably at least twice each season I will leave the house, drive 45 minutes and walk some of my favorite grouse spots for hours and hours, seeing nothing.  Admitting defeat on that day, I will drive 45 minutes back home, only to find a covey of birds in the driveway...
    • Colonel E.H. Taylor Small Batch Maker's Maker's 46 Bulleit Glenmorangie Highland Single Malt   Copperwing Distillery in St. Louis Park has a nice smooth whiskey. Supposed to introduce a new bourbon in a couple weeks too.
    • Hey featherslayer, you gonna register that nice bird of yours pretty soon?
    • cool find!  sure looks like a Swainson's.  
    • Great info.   Thanks Steve!   Jim
    • Came across this hawk on Earth Day at the edge of town. I've been told dark morph Red-tail, dark morph Swainson's and dark morph Broa- winged. Anyway, it's a dark morph some kind of hawk.
    • Yes it was.  I really needed one more layer today.  Lots of jakes and hens seen by us this morning.  Still looking for the toms.  Hope you had more luck.
    • There are a lot of apps available for that. Search your app store for "phone tracking" or something similar. Many give you the ability to share your positions so you both can see each other live. You might even have an app already on your phone. For example, I have Lookout Security installed on my phone and it includes the ability to find the location of my phone from another phone or PC. 
    • Watch your City Ordinances.  Some city's require a back-flow preventor, and it can be VERY expensive. I have both the battery backup, and the water driven sump pumps in my pit--all at different elevations, and feel very confident. When the water comes up, and the power goes out, the battery backup starts working.  After that the water driven sump pump will kick in.  The water driven pump will keep pumping until the power is restored and the main pump returns everything to normal. There is always water pressure in a power outage (from the tower).  Cities keep the tower full for fire protection
