Over scribed trim doesn't look good. I'd leave the trim square and fill in with grout.

No disrespect intended, but could you explain why a scribed part would look bad. I may not be understanding what you are saying. The photo below is an example of what I am talking about.

Jim: if we all had the same taste, we all would live in the same thing.

Kind of like those urban developments where every house is a copy of the next one.

Imagine how bland the world would be that way.

Scribing would be a lot of work, more often you will see the stone laid over a spacer that is removed for flooring or the floor guy undercuts the stone.

I agree, it isn't easy, but I just never gave it a thought to doing it any other way when I trimmed a house I didn't contract. If I contracted the house, I installed stops on the sides and at the ceiling so molding and sheet rock wouldn't be a problem fitting.

Ed, you are right, not everyone likes the same things.

Re: Not sure what to do about stone fireplace - Crown and baseboards.


We have a stone Fireplace that the head guy scribed ...
Most people use a compass and pencil...He just used a
pencil and a small stick of wood ...
First he put up a piece of wood holding it up with 2x4's
in the location on the stone where it needed to be scribed.
...then with a small piece of wood with the pencil on the end
he followed the in's and outs of the stone... Then cut the
wood with a jig saw. (it was not hard to do.

A compass would probably be easier.

This is the mantle...its 3 1/2" thick so both the top and the bottom
had to be scribed.

stay tuned for more visual aids.

Re: Not sure what to do about stone fireplace - Crown and baseboards.


Now for the ceiling...I wouldn't scribe the wood...

We filled in the with the same mortar as the stone mortar.
...the side molding where it meets the sides of the stone
is just scribed on the left and right of the FB.

This is the best pic I could get.

For the floor molding in front of the FP, use a piece of
oak wood to match your existing floor?
Do as described...scribe the wood, and finish it to match
the floor and then glue it down.

My suggestion is to just use the width needed ( depends on the
in's and out's of the stone) so that it's
just 1 to 1 1/4" deep X ...about 1/2" high...
it should not be noticeable ...just blend with the existing
floor...

If your interested, I can show you how we installed the mantle
on top of the stone.

You can still undercut it by attaching a gauge to the floor and running a thin disk on a 4" grinder to make the first cut and then with a couple more cuts under that, then the material should chip right out of there.

You'll still have some scribing to do but it doesn't have to be nearly as precise since the flooring will be under the rock.

If you have someone else there with a shop vac by the wheel as you're cutting it will catch most of the dust. I've done it this way more than a few times.
