    Inside corners should be done using a coping saw my friend. No wall has an exact 90 degree angle. You will find over time that attempting to cut inside corners this way never holds up because homes shift and move. The caulk dries out? and breaks… its just not correct…

    Sorry you don’t agree. This technique worked great for me and many others who have seen the video!? This is really meant for the DIY novice. I’m sure a coping saw works great also if done right.

    *how* do you use the coping saw? Are you suggesting that you run one piece past the other and then attempt to cut to the contours? If you don’t have 90 degrees, why not simply lift the bevel with a bevel gage and then set up the miter box with a? compensating wedge?

    Thank you! I know this is the ‘perfect’ way to do it, but every other video assumes I have a professional power miter saw and speeds through the most difficult concepts. This is to the point and simple to follow. Thanks? again!

    I have been racking? my brain trying to figure out how to make the correct cut with the box. Although my husband has a mitre saw, I don’t have the time to learn how to use it nor, do I want to lug another piece of equipment to the job site. I really appreciate that you put this up for us novices. Thanks!

    Extremely helpful! This procedure makes it so much easier to install. We? were having a hard time until my husband and I found this video. The others were too complicated. Thank you so much!
