Steve Archer says:

Just a general safety caveat- cutting towards your body with a sharp object on a dense surface is probably not the greatest idea. Take precautions or stand above the area while cutting away from your body.

Great info for a beginner like me. I have a question. I would like to replace my basic baseboards with updates ones. Right now, we have a carpeted living room and plan to eventually install engineered wood floors. Should we wait to update the baseboards until after the new floors are installed? Or does it matter? Thanks!

I never use caulking to glue corners I always use wood glue and when I shoot pin nails I shoot them in so they cross one another to help from pulling out… If I have a gap I fill it in with Light Spackle and when it dry’s you can sand it smooth or use a wet rag to wipe off the excess. It also fill’s in the nail holes better than using caulk which you can’t sand and make smooth ! you will just have a mess trying to fill in holes with caulk.

Donna Shanks says:

Great video. Very helpful. I’ve watched it many times to make sure I get it down.

Carina Chavez says:

What if the wall the baseboard is on is a painted cement wall? Still use a straight knife? Also, since I wouldn’t be able to use nails to make sure it sticks to the wall, what would work best in the nails place?
Thanks ahead of time!
