Shannon from http://www.house-improvements.com/interior shows you now to measure, cut, and install MDF baseboard.
He just never learned better
Great job Shanon. It helped me a lot. Thank you.
Good Instructions. Thanx
No glue!!!!!!! Outside corner? Go home bro, this is not carpentry.
Only thing I would add is when nailing, make sure you line your baseboard up as you go along. Also small detail but angle the gun with the grain- less of a hole.
As for your inside corner- cope!
aren’t we supposed to cope the baseboard for inner corner?
This is so great!
How in the heck are you sitting like that?
Wall color? plzzz
I LOVE YOUR WORK, HAVE A QUESTION, I HAVE STUD FINDERS AND THEY DON’T WORK , THE STUD FINDER YOU ARE USING, SEEN TO WORK PRETTY GOOD, WHAT KIND IS IT THANKS
You lost me when you used silicone. Unless you know a way to paint silicone.
great video. thanks.
You must be from Canada or the Upper Peninsula of Michigan huh?
A coped joint is superior, as it clamps the adjoining piece with a joint composed of a an identical vertical profile
I cope my inside corners and I try not to nail within 6″ of the corner, to avoid any deflection that may occur and create a gap.
Last time I could sit on my feet was 50 years ago.
Cut the miter first when doing a piece that has one straight end
great video! Thanks!
I am really confused at the “angle” you are cutting on that first piece…and why you stand the piece up, instead of laying it down? Was that just a normal miter cut, but just with the piece standing up? Or did you turn it into a bevel cut, by standing it up like that? It was really hard to “see” the angled in the video, so I cant tell how it was cut.
Inside 90* miters are for picture frames
If you are not up to scribing the joint then screw the boards to the wall. If the joint is bad, unscrew and start again, correcting the cutting errors. Use a plug cutter and plug the hole with the grain running in the same direction as the board. Only use nails when you are sure you won’t want to do anything twice.
Had to give you a sub, you do everything!!
Im a DYI is there a certain size miter saw that you need to cut base boards 9/16 in. x 5-1/4 I have a Ryobi 10inch I stood the baseboard up like you did and it wouldn’t cut all the way through
my room has concrete, so what can I do ?
you explain tasks so well. thank you for making sense! haha!
Shannon the real MVP 4 years later
I usually cope my inside corners but i have a full house to do next week using MDF and your video convinced me to say “the hell with it” and just do inside corners like you do.
Of course if they were wood i would still cope.
You should have coped that inside corner. Not very professional.
so would you say that who ever installs baseboards should also apply caulking as well? Thank you!
Looks terrible. MDF is junk.
12:18 who the hell installs an outlet so close to where the trim would be that there isn’t even room for a faceplate!?!?!
Thanks for another great video! You’re excellent at presenting these things in a clear, natural way.
I think u need to caulk the thingy after the whatever u do XD LOL
Thanks! Great video and I am ready to do this. Great pace. Good to hear a great Canadien doing this. I’m sorry all our worst are threatening to go imigrate, but I’m sure most will fail to follow through. Just like they failed to vote.
I knew you were Canadian the moment you said, “Out”! Very good video, and much appreciated!! I have to install some molding over a wood floor in my RV. This will be pine wood molding quarter round 1/2″ x 1/2″. Problem is that though the subfloor is plywood, the walls are only 1/8″ thick in places. Should I use Titebond Wood Glue on entire surface of molding plus some brad nails with nail gun, or just glue corners? Will the air compressor split the thin molding?
Now to figure out what ‘coping’ means! Thanks again!!
what color is that paint. I really like it
