Quarter round on round outside corners


I have installed Harmonics Brazillian Cherry Laminate Flooring and I am now ready to install the quarter round.

I have several ROUND OUTSIDE CORNERS.

I was planning on cutting several small pieces to go around each corner. However, after looking closer I believe it will look sloppy.

I could not find any premade.

Thank you.

You could buy some flexible Q.round at H. Depot

How big are the radaii? You can make curved quarter round pretty easy with a router and a round over bit, and either a bandsaw or good jig saw with a quality blade, like the Bosch. The curved pieces will go across some "short grain" in the wood, so they are fragile to nail. I suggest you use construction adhesive to apply them. I'm thinking fairly small radius here. If they are large, you might be able to carefully bend stock around them. Help by heating the face of the moulding with a heat gun or even a hair dryer . This will help the fibers stretch instead of snapping.

Making your own sounds like a good idea to me or you could bevel the corners

What's the radii and what material are you using for the 1/4round?
