How to cut molding for baseboards when I don have a miter saw.?
You are going to want to rent a miter saw. You will find that very few, if any, of the corners in your house are 90 degrees. It won’t cost much to rent, but it will make a HUGE difference in the quality of the cuts. You will also want to cope the inside corners to make the best joints. For nailing, use 6d or 8d finish nails for the middle of the wall. To predrill, which is a must, cut the head off of one of the nails and chuck it up in a cordless drill. Drill with the nail. At the outside corners, use 4d finish nails or brads. Glue both sides of the joint with yellow carpenters glue. Hope this helps.
