Trim joins at base of sloping wall


Hi - I'm finishing my basement and have a question about trim; I need to ask it with reference to the attached diagram.

I've added a piece of 1 x 8 with routed edges to surface "A", and want to attach either quarter round or the other trim in the diagram (both profiles inset) under the 1 x 8 piece. The partial wall rises at about a 36 degree angle.

My question is: How would you join the trim ends at corners "B" and "C"? Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

base cap is a much better look turned upside down butted up underneath the top 1x8. you can either wrap the outside corner with the base or make a return that stops the base at the outside corners. the wrapped around base would be a 36 degree cut on the vertical and 45 degree to make the outside corner...

You split the angle at the miter. 63 degrees.

Instanly gives me the angle to cut for a single or double cut.

Joe, just how many toys do you have????

Use one of the gizmos Joe shows, or use a piece of paper. Transfer to paper and fold in half.

You rounded the corners of the 1 x 8 and ran it past (Cantilevered) about 2.5 inches right?

By the way, OP great illustration, very clear.

Let's put it this way, I can get a tool catalog and not seeing anything I need.
I can cut though the tool isle at Lowes or HD and not touch anything.
I had so many hand tools I started giving my extras to the high school shop class.
All I buy now is sand paper, and saw blades.

I had way more then that at one time, I was trying to run three crews on 3, differant jobs so I had to have three trailers full of tools, a 30 ft. constrution trailer plus a garage full.
I dumped all my sockets out and sorted them and found I had at least 8 of every size, why I have no idea.
3, table saws, two jointers, two planers.
I was spending more in tools a week then my exwife was making in a week.

Maybe that's why she is your X-wife, you did not buy, or use the right tool enough.
