        Trim Inside corners Sign In/Join 
        I have trying to 3 pieces of trim (quarter round) to an inside corner. I can't determine the best way to cut all of the peices for them to fit together very well. I have tried 2 - 45degree corners and coping some of the pieces but not mater what I do it doesn't look very god.

        Any help / suggestions would be helpful.
        Thank you

        I like coping the inside corner the best. It will generally take care of a corner that isn't exactly 90 degrees.

        How are your coping the corners? I put one piece in with a butt joint, the other one I cut with a 45 degree cut as if I were going to do two mitered corners. Then I use the cut on the face as a guide for my coping saw. I find this works well, and if needed a small amount of caulking will seal the deal.

        Here is a video showing how it is done.

        General Disclaimer

        Any advice given here is general in nature and is not necessarily valid for your given area. If in doubt check with your local codes enforcement department for what is required when doing electrical, plumbing or structural work on your house. Permits may or may not be required in your area and home owners may not be able to DIY some tasks. I have no way of knowing if you have the skills needed to complete the tasks you are asking about, when in doubt seek professional assistance.

        My advice may be worth exactly what you pay me for it. :-) For the record I did not stay in a Holiday Inn Express last night.
