corner blocks & base moulding


I prefer plinth blocks just as the photos by Two Knots shows! dang that looks fine! The plinth blocks jazz up an otherwise BORING baseboard, it is personal preference what you do in regards to the blocks, experiment and see what YOU like best, there's no law that says you must make YOUR baseboards or plinth blocks or moldings a certain way, certain size or anything else.

Please let me know what you go with in the end. Pictures are always helpful too!

thx, my reveals are 1/4" or less

I'm not sure why you would need to make any coping cuts on base molding. Miters, yes, but not copes. And it looks like you had to do some miter cuts anyway.

i'm a bit confused on your comment... i didn't make any coping or mitering at all, except for simply using a coping saw to cut the base moulding for the exact length i needed... i bought the corner blocks from Midwest Mouldings & Millwork. They cut em (glued 2 pieces together) to my exact obtuse wall angles which were all different...made my DIY job much easier
