I have a problem with some cedar baseboard. We got it straight from a
mill. It took us 2 days to sand and tint 30 meters of it.
The problem is that the wood either came with or has developed a
slight bend. The bends range in all directions and in almost all
pieces (a couple are straight).
The main issue I have right now is that these are not going into
concrete walls like the rest of my house they are going into drywall
so I acquired a tube of a no nails type of glue. The problem is though
that I can't force the baseboard into the correct position without
securing it with something.
Here are some options i've thinking about:
- Nail some finishing nails to the bottom rail that runs on the floor
(1/4" is used up by the floor though) and use the glue.
- Nail long steel nails through the drywall and into the concrete wall
behind it (possible on 3 walls and all the stairs) ofcourse glue would
be applied as well.
- Glue a section of the baseboard. Leave it for a couple hours and
then come back and glue the next part, etc. This could potentially
take an eternity.
Any other suggestions?
Thanks in advance, Nick
