Cutting Baseboard Moldings

Installing baseboard moldings requires good measurement taking and precision cutting. You can hire all the tools a professional would use and this will save you time and effort. Be sure to ask for instruction on how to use the equipment before taking it home. Cutting baseboard moldings well means that they will fit together perfectly and result in a nice, neat job.

Miter Saw

At the corners is where it is important for moldings to appear seamless. The easiest and quickest way to cut and join moldings is with a miter saw. Mitering means that the ends of the two pieces of individual wood are sawn at a 45-degree angle. These two angles add up to 90 degrees which is exactly what you get at the corner of a wall.
