Torus skirting

how do YOU cut it when doing the inside profiling method?
Do you cut it straight then use a coping saw?
This way you will still need to profile it except the half moon profile cut...
Before cutting the piece to size, mark a straight line down the skirting to the correct lenght you need. Now find the center of the halfmoon shape and mark it with a centre punch and using an auger wood bit of the same size of the halfmoon drill all the way through,then cut down the line...BINGO! no need to cut out the profile as its already there and a perfect fit to butt up to the other skirting providing your coping is good for the two pieces ie the stub above the halfmoon and the curled lip below the halfmoon.

12 months on and the stuff starts to swell and contract leaving cracks in the paintwork in the corners

I don't think he'd make a living with that method as he'd take about an hour for every inside mitre.
Cut an 8 inch long short end at both ends at 45 degrees and follow the outline with a compass saw. I can do it with a Sandvik. That will give you a profile for both ends.
Us a bevel on the floor against the piece it will butt up to, to get the angle of the perp. That will give you a line to put the profile to, then mark out the outline. Undercut the angle to make the profile face pinch home when fixing and glue the joins.
5 minutes apiece.
