Length: 1:35
Produced By: Mike Dobsevage

In this video, Fine Homebuilding contributing editor Rick Arnold demonstrates how to find skirtboard to landing baseboard trim miter angles without using math. Instead, his easy and foolproof method starts with a random angle on the wall that is then transfered to the baseboard using a sliding T-bevel. As an added bonus, there won’t be a test for this geometry lesson.
