Thank God for caulk and paint.
Non of the inside or outside corners of my walls are true 90 degrees so final results at the corners are a little off when mitering at 45 degrees. Even off by 2 or 3 degrees will show up as out of alignment at the corners where the baseboards don't meet exactly. I've tried coping for the first time but it was a long process with trial errors before it looked ok - forgot to take the coping saw with me, had to freehand on the TS. I had some odd shaped walls also and had to divide the angle exactly by half using trial and error or simple high school geometry as eyeballing it results in disaster. After about four hundred feet of baseboards I'm getting the hang of it so accurately is a must since a degree off here and a 1/16" off their will show. So far this is only simple angles and I needed to resort to caulk and paint.
Next crown moldings with compound angles - now I'll be really challenged with those funky walls. I need to dust off my descriptive geometry book and see if it helps. Is this where coping comes in play more than baseboards?
