Picture Molding angles question


Hello,

I started working on my picture molding on the foyer (as seen on the picture below). As you can see I got stuck on one picture molding right next to the stairs. My question is how do I get the angles to cuts correct using a miter saw so they butt up correctly?

If you don't do this type work every day I would suggest making a template to place on your miter saw to be able to cut the sharp angles safely.

you can also try an angle finder. They're anywhere from 5 to hundreds, but the cheap ones are just as good.

When doing something new or tricky, always practice on scrap wood first as well.
