I plan to pull up carpeting and expose HW floors, and at the same time
replace my baseboards. I also want to redo the stairway end-cap (I believe
there is a proper name for it, but I don't know what it is).
This is a photo of how they did it back in '61. The baseboard is just cut
at a 45 against the vertical quarter-round, and filled in with caulk. It
looks kinda hokey in my opinion. Even though I'll just repaint it, I'd like
to do a more elegant. job on the end-cap and its joining t the baseboards.
Any suggestions on how to build the end-cap and marry it to new baseboards?
I have air nailers and a miter saw, so I can get pretty fancy. I am just
short of ideas.
