How to cut a corner on a plinth?

If you are doing home repair with your own hands and have now come to the stage of installing a floor or ceiling plinth, then the question inevitably arises before you: how to cut a corner on the plinth? A person who does not have the necessary equipment and experience in this field will inevitably ruin the whole meters of the plinth until he achieves an acceptable result. Meanwhile, if you understand how this is done, you can quickly and easily cut even corners.

To cut the corners, we need a special carpentry fixture - a steel bar, on which cuts are already made at an angle of 45 °. To cut a plinth made of wood or plastic, you can use a hacksaw for metal. If you work with a ceiling plinth from polyfoam, the usual office knife will approach also.

Cutting corners using a stousla: tips

  • the baseboard, which is the right side of the corner (if you look directly at the corner), is inserted into the block to the right; the left plinth is inserted on the left;
  • The plinth should not be placed on the bottom of the flush or leaned against its wall. The plinth level is set obliquely at an angle of 45 ° so that its lower edge rests on the bottom of the miter box and the upper edge rests on the wall;
  • The floor plinth is placed in a steel box face up and leans against the wall of the masonry farthest from the master. The ceiling plinth is placed face down and leans on the wall nearest to the master;
  • when cutting inside corners, the angle between the hacksaw and the plinth should be sharp; when cutting the outside corners, the hacksaw and plinth form an obtuse angle between them.
