Cove molding: to cope or not?


Thats a neat lil saw, I've used a sabre and an angle grinder with good results after some practice, angle grinder works great on crown.

On simple bases or coves I use a hand saw, find coping alot faster and neater than miters. But a miter saw and a 5 gal bucket of caulk works too.

Grandpa showed me how to cut my first cope and scarf almost 40 yrs ago, bet they're still tight today.

Cove molding: to cope or not?


I am trimming out base which is about 6". I have to cope all inside corners to get a good fit. I am also having trouble with the outside corners at a 45 degree. It seems that the corner bead kicks the cuts out. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Skymaster, I don't quite understand what you mean. The max the saws are set up for is only 45 degrees.
