Installing Base Trim - Transition from wood to carpet???


I'm installing Base Trim in a house I just recently remodeled and since we have oak floors in the dining area it transitions to the living area which is carpet. What is the best way to compensate for the 1/2 difference and still keep the top of the trim fairly even?

Thanks,
Ken

in most cases the carpet will be able to cover the 1/2"-3/4' gap.. if not then you may need to shave down the base in the areas with the wood.

Get the table saw out and rip 1/2 " off the bottom.
