Round Corner Baseboard piece


Hello -

I've searched all over the internet for a baseboard piece to my rounded drywall corners and am unable to find. Does anyone know where I can get replacement pieces? Are there online suppliers?

See pictures...

Square off the bottom with plaster then install normally.

I have a whole house full of these. Don't think I want to have non matching baseboards.

Why wouldn't you just go to a local lumber yard and buy them off the shelf. Those things are common these days, you can find them almost everywhere.

Don't even think about squaring-off the corners, that's a goofy idea.

Thanks! Yes, I thought it would be simple, but I went to home depot and lowes and they were no help..looked around the net and couldn't find anything. I'll check some lumber yards.

its possible to make the corner with the baseboard you already have, but it has to be done in several peices.. if your baseboard is a specific molding you'll have to try to get a match from the company that makes it..other wise make a series of very short peices which make the turn.

i have to do it every now and then on larger bullnose corners. i have a contact who is a published trim specialist. he does it with a combination of plaster and autobody resin. he uses a 10" drywall knife and shapes the blade to match the trim exactly. its a very tricky process, not diy but it looks sharp

You can get the molding from Carolina trim in north Carolina. Google them, they should have a website. They carry almost all moldings in stock in flexible paint and stain grade.

Just stained wood is easy. Just prime and paint. If there's a polyurethane finish over the paint, you will need to sand the baseboard first, then prime and paint.

Not at all!!!
Use your head man!
Why would the guy want to have one jack-leg corner when he has an entire house done the other way. He didn't come here asking for an alternative method - he came here asking where to find replacements for what he already has a whole house of.

what im saying is that they cant find the peice, it can be made. ive had to do it. ive trimmed many houses where we cant find a match to existing trim so it takes some creative cutting on the mitre saw or some time on a router and table saw.

i dont know how many times ive had to make things from scratch both by making multiple passes on teh table saw or by using multiple router bits to create a match
