I like to round off the outside corners on the sharp point about to a 3/16 radios, for small children sake…. trust me , it works out nice

billyzoom1 says:

Nice.  Thank you.

Claude Desaulniers says:

Very good, but you didn’t show the inside corner. You went flat against the wall. Most people would cut at a 45. I guess you will be scribing. Many people don’t know that method. You should explain why you went flat against the wall.

Javier Fernandez says:

I like it

Scott Acklin says:

Get a real saw with a laser so you can see your cut line. It’ll save a ton of time

Annony Mouse says:

I’ve seen people use magnets to find the drywall screws on the studs, what are your thoughts on that technique?

avalon449 says:

Is it be wrong to glue where the two 45’s meet?

Oak0586 says:

I am going to be doing all the base in my home (not a basement) I will need to do both the base and quarter round. Could I save money buy Buying and using a brad nailer for both instead of using a finish nailer for the base then a Brad nailer for the quarter round? Thank you great video.
