How to make an angle on a ceiling plinth with a bin. step-by-step instruction
Ceiling baseboard is a decorative element that separates ceiling wallpaper or tiles from wallpaper on the wall. He completes the appearance of the room and gives the design completeness. However, in order to correctly join the two strips of the baseboard in the corner, it is necessary to correct it correctly. How exactly this is done? There are several ways to achieve the planned.
The easiest way is to fit the strips of the skirting board, cutting it with the help of. This device is a P-shaped design (something like a box without one of the walls). In the sidewalls, cuts are made in advance, which are further used as a template for cutting both skirting boards and other materials.
Cutting skirting boards at at an angle with the help of a bunny, watch in this video.
- It allows you to accurately cut the edges of the baseboard according to the finished template.
- It is easy to do it with your own hands using four planks, a square and a saw. In this case, you can cut out template grooves for every taste depending on the required type of work.
- With it, it is easy to form both the internal and external angle.
The only drawback of this method applies only to those cases when the knock is made with your own hands: it is necessary to carefully, in advance, outline lines for template slots with the help of the transporter, without deviating a degree.
Cutting the angle on the ceiling skirting boards according to the strules has its own characteristics. Perhaps you will also be interested to familiarize yourself with the article on the topic, plaster of the walls with your own hands, types of plaster.
For the outer corner. the baseboard is applied to the right side of the rushed (or. to the closest to itself, if the template is placed across the desktop), is aligned on the plane and wall, and then cut off or sawn off using the template.
For the internal. also, but in the reverse order: application occurs on the left or far side of the stir.
Both cut plinths are applied in place without gluing. If there are cracks. fragments are driven to each other with a knife. Small defects can later be covered with putty. It will also be useful to familiarize yourself with the article how to make a putty for walls with your own hands.
Hand Right important: even when using a template, cutting angles requires a certain skill. Therefore, for the finisher, doing this for the first time, it is recommended to first practice on the unnecessary residues of the skirting board, cutting them, and trying to join without cracks.
Features of cutting
Let us consider in more detail how to properly cut the angle on the ceiling skirting board using different materials.
Polyurethane foam (in colloquial. just polyurethane) is a very good material for ceiling skirting boards. Due to good flexibility, it definitely adjacent to the base (the junction of the wall and ceiling), even if, due to building errors, the walls and ceiling are uneven. In addition, polyurethane is well washed, and therefore can serve for a long time. Low resistance to loads here is not a problem: there is almost no load on the ceiling plinth. We also have a separate article where the question of how to make a drywall ceiling and suspended ceilings made of drywall with your own hands are more details.
Cut the polyurethane skirting boat with the help of the stirred:
- Measure the wall and ceiling in the area of the junction.
- Select a suitable stupor template for cutting.
Foam is also often found as an element of decorative decoration of rooms. Its characteristic feature is increased fragility, so it is extremely accurate to adjust it at the place, the foam does not tolerate any deformations.
Cut it with the help of the rushed as follows:
- Plinth plates are laid in the knock.
- A cut is made. Unlike polyurethane polyurethane. soft material, and it can be cut even with a knife or better. stationery or construction cutter. It is better to use not a large, but even wooder, metal dick or ruler here. In extreme cases, you can make marks with a pencil corresponding to the slots of the stir, connect them using a ruler. and conduct a slot.
Asterisk is important: foam is a fragile material, so the cutting tool should be sharpened as best as possible.
Polystyrene has the same properties as the foam. Therefore, polystyrene skirting boards are cut as well as foam. The main thing here is the most acute sharpening of the cutting edge of the tool to avoid dyeing. At the same time, there is no need to process the ends with sandpaper: their edges are usually already quite relief to ensure a good adhesion of glue.
A wooden skirting board is infrequent and is expensive, so it is necessary to approach its processing extremely responsibly. Cutting technology looks something like this:
- The cut end is fixed in the stizl.
- Cut is made. You can do this with an ordinary hacksaw on wood, but it is better to use a special saw or saw for metal to avoid too wide sawing.
Asterisk is important: when fitting, you need to be extremely careful, it is better to close the uneven cut with a decorative lining or putty for wood than to open a too large array of wood.
The skirting board made of plastic (polyvinyl chloride, PVC) is now widespread now. It is convenient because:
- Easily cut by any tool.
- Flexible, can be used even in uneven corners.
- Usually has internal cavities, which means-can be used as a cable channel for laying electrical wiring or fiber-optic lines for the Internet.
Cut a plinth from PVC as well as polyurethane. However, you need to take into account: the best tool, a hacksaw for metal with small teeth, is suitable only for thick skirting boards, in thin it can tear out pieces. Therefore, the best option for thin products is a stationery or a construction cut or a sharpened knife. To use it, you need a certain dexterity, so it is better to practice in advance on scraps or sheets of thin plastic.
A few words about tools and materials
Floor skirting boards are now made of wood or polyvinyl chloride (PVC), in other words, from plastic. The ceiling fillets have a little more list:
The assortment of ceiling skirting boards is much wider than that of the floor.
- Polyurethane. these skirting boards have good elasticity and can bend radial and other curved surfaces, but they need to be cut to clear corners in any case;
- Foam. the easiest budget option, the price of foam plinths is low and they are cut very easily;
- PVC. the principle is the same as the floor skirting boards, but the lineup is much wider;
- Wooden. similar to the floor, only there are still wide models;
- Gypsum-with the advent of polyurethane and foam, gypsum ceiling fillets faded into the background, firstly, they are heavy, and secondly, fragile. But in fairness to mention them is worth.
Since it is impossible to correctly cut the ceiling skirting board and its flooring with a good tool, we will dwell on this issue a little more.
The best, almost ideal tool for cutting any skirting boards and not only is a trim saw with a rotary bed. The high.speed disk makes smooth and exact sections, and the bed in these units turns to any corner. The problem is only in the serious cost of this tool.
The end of the saw is almost the perfect tool for cutting skirting boards and not only their.
It is believed that one of the best hand tools for the exact cut of small bars is a training saw. In principle, this is true, but I will tell you honestly, really high.quality saw, even with the current assortment it is not easy to find. If you still decide to buy a similar tool, then take a saw with a small tooth.
The training saw is convenient when working with a stupid.
Theoretically, polystyrene and polyurethane can be cut by any sharp and durable knife. But at the same time you need to have a firm hand and at least a little experience in cutting foam. Plus wide fillets with a knife is very problematic to cut.
Without experience, making a clear cut with a knife is very problematic.
Personally, in the absence of ending, I use only a hacksaw for metal. It is suitable for cutting absolutely any material, from foam and to wood. By the way, they often ask the question of how to cut a plastic skirting board for the floor, and so. take a hacksaw for metal and you definitely won’t make a mistake.
For cutting skirting boards, a hacksaw for metal is considered one of the best tools.
Three working methods for pruning plinths
In floor and ceiling skirting boards, the instructions for cutting are almost the same. But if on the floor of the crooked corner you can cover something, then on the ceiling this is already a problem, so we will pay more attention to how to cut the ceiling skirting boards.
Classic knocking method
Classic knock is a P-shaped bed with slots in opposite sides. A suitable part is put in this bed and is sawn through the slots in the sides. The idea is not new, the instrument is already several hundred years old, but, despite the simplicity of how to correctly cut the angle of the ceiling skirting board with the help of such a cashed, not everyone knows.
How to cut a ceiling skirting board in the corner with the help of a classic chusla, not everyone knows.
Tip: Ceiling skirting boards when cutting are applied to that side of the cubble, which is closer to you, and floor skirting boards, on the contrary, need to be applied to the side of the instrument from you. This is not a dogma, but this is much easier to work.
It’s easier to work with floor skirting boards, as the knock lies on a horizontal plane easier for you to navigate in the position of the skirting board. People are most often mistaken when cutting a ceiling fillet, it is simply incorrectly invested in the tool. There is a simple but important rule here.
Important: the board of the ceiling fillet, which touches the wall, should be directed to the upper edge of the side of the side of the station, and that part of the skirting board, which borders on the ceiling, is placed on the bottom.
At the corner, as you know, 2 sides, and so, in order to less mistakes, accustom yourself to ensure that the bar, which will be mounted on the right side of the corner, put into the knock on the right, and the bar, which is attached to the left, put it in the hand on the left. Details about the intricacies of the use of classical cushed is described in the video in this article.
How to correctly cut the inner and outer corner of the ceiling filler.
In addition to the classic P-shaped, there are two more types of such designs-this is a professional and rotary tool. As for the professional option, it is used only by masters. The device is quite bulky, but it turns at any angle and has a hacksaw, which can be fixed in the right position.
Professional knocking with the possibility of fixing hacksaws and details.
The rotary device can be safely called “” stupid. Of the advantages, there is only the possibility of a clear fixation of the angle of turning the bar. On the one hand, they simply work. put a corner, put it to the baseboard and cut off. But on the other hand, you need to get used to such an instrument, if you do not have an experience with a hacksaw, then you should not take a rotary knock.
Tip: when choosing a classic P-shaped chose, firstly do not take Chinese products. And secondly, try to buy models with the possibility of rigid fixation of the part inside, one of these models is shown in the photo from below.
With a stall with the possibility of fixing the part inside it is much more convenient to work.
Temple cutting method
Most often, both ceiling and floor skirting boards need to be cut under 45º. If a specialized tool is not nearby, then improvised knock can be drawn on a notebook leaflet. From the school geometry course, we know that the diagonal of any square in relation to the base has an angle of inclination 45º.
Postpone the angle of 45º by applying the skirting board to the diagonal of the square.
Then you need to draw a square and hold 2 diagonals in it. this will be the desired 45º. You just have to properly attach the baseboard to the leaf and mark. True, in order to cut off the plinth without guides to cut off a good eye and a faithful hand.
The method is universal applied
Cutting under 45º is a common option, but what to do if you need a different angle, and only a hacksaw and a pencil are available? It turns out that there is a very simple way out of this situation. Plus, this method is universal, it is suitable for both external and internal angles.
over, I can assure you that those angles that visually seem straight a couple of degrees have deviations. As a result, you buy a good tool, cut out clearly 45º, and when joining the gap between the skirting boards “crawls out”. Here this problem disappears. And then, using an example, we will consider how to cut a ceiling baseboard in the inner corner.
Take a filler, apply it on one side of the corner and with its help draw 2 lines, along the wall and on the ceiling.
Tip: so that the lines are inconspicuous, they can be drawn not with a pencil, but, for example, a nail or a knife tip.
If you tried, as you could, but a small gap at the junction of it still “got out”, do not be upset. In wooden filters, such a gap is easily covered with furniture wax. To cover the gap on skirting boards made of polyurethane, foam, plastic or gypsum, putty is perfect. Naturally, the color of the composition should coincide with the color of the skirting board.
What tools can be used to cut angles
Cut the ceiling plinth (external angle) with explanations will be a good help to a novice master.
How to cut the skirting boat without rushed
Suppose you urgently need to stick a ceiling plinth.
How to make an angle without a bunny? This is possible, although you will have to spend more time. Should act in this order.
- Both parts of the skirting board are cut at first at right angles.
- Marking the position of the elements on the wall is performed and the fishing line is applied for the trimmer of their docking. As a result, we will see two intersecting lines. The point of their intersection is projected directly onto the details of the plinth.
- The skirting board is applied to the ceiling and draws a fishing line for a cutting cut from one edge to the other.
- The finalization of parts is performed by stationery or construction knife.
- The paper depicts virtual knock with lines at the desired corners. The skirting boards of the plinth are applied to such a strip and cutting is performed (in this case, the knife blade should be kept vertically).
How to cut the angle of ceiling skirting boards with a specialist’s Комментарии и мнения владельцев will help to deal with this problem.
Advice! Since it does not always have an ideal form of an internal or outer angle, the ceiling skirting board will have noticeable cracks in the docking sites.
So that they are less noticeable, before gluing the baseboard on its ends, gypsum putty should be applied. After connecting the elements, excess putty is removed with a rubber spatula. All cracks will be filled and the connection place will be less noticeable.
Not just glue and correctly dock the fillets with a pattern. What to do in this case? The answer will tell the video.
If the angle is not straight
Unfortunately, in some cases, the angle between the walls in the room is not straight, but sharp, or, conversely, stupid. This is due to the defects of the design arising due to the fault of unprofessional builders, the architect’s idea or the consequence of the soil subsidence some time after the construction of the building. This is especially common in village houses and summer cottages.
No knock or a drawing drawing in this case will help, and you will have to mark the place.
- Attach the workpiece to one of the walls so that it rests on another wall with your end.
- Pass the fishing line for a trimmer on the ceiling along the workpiece.
- Take the same operation by the other wall.
- At the intersection of two lines, put a mark on the workpiece itself.
- Draw a fishing line for a trimmer from the mark to the corner of the workpiece and cut it down on it.
- Do the same with the workpiece that you will be attached to another wall.
- Glue both blanks; They will converge tightly.
It happens that the room has not only internal, but also external corners, which also need to be glued with a skirting board (see. a photo). How to do it? There are also several ways here. The easiest way, as in the case of the inner angles, cut them with the help of. The external places of joints must be cut so that the side that will be glued to the ceiling is on the surface of the roster, and the side, pressed against the wall, was turned to the wall of the device.
As in the case of internal angles, you can use the marking “in place”, that is, draw lines on the ceiling. Here, the technology exactly repeats the one that is used for internal angles.
You can use the marking along the wall by applying the workpiece and drawing a fishing line for a trimmer along its lower edge (see. a photo).
If the outer angle is too rounded, you can finalize the joint with a knife.
Cutting the ceiling plinth. External and internal corners
To the point where they come together, a fishing line for a trimmer is drawn right along the future part of the connection. From the point on the ceiling to the second. The resulting marking will be a line on which you need to saw off or cut off the connecting parts. Using these techniques, you can no longer ask the question of how to slaughter the corners of the ceiling plinth.
What is a knock, how to use this tool
Starting repairs in the apartment, many are wondering how to cut the angles of the skirting board to the ceiling. It is important to get acquainted with the rules for using equipment. Fetling is a device consisting of walls with side cuts and bottoms. The part that requires processing is laid out in the middle and adjusted with the help of a file.
The main question is how to cut a plastic skirting board. The result should be a perfectly even angle of 45 degrees. The taller sawing is quickly and easy to use the finished knock, or to make it from the available materials. The tool for reliability is placed on the floor and held with the left hand. The hacksaw must be placed in one of the oblique lines, depending on which angle should turn out. right or left.
It is best for beginner masters to fix the knock on the table so that it does not jump off during work
- With a pencil, a thin, barely noticeable fishing line for a trimmer is carried out;
- The filler is laid by the side in the knock and determine the angle of the cut;
- The hacksaw should pass exactly along the indicated line;
- The second filler is rotated and a cut is made on the other hand, so that when combining two parts, an angle forms.
How to do it with your own hands
Flowing is a useful tool with which you can correctly and smoothly cut off the angle of skirting boards along the oblique line. Despite the fact that the knock seems to be a simple device to make it with your own hands, you need to understand why this design is intended and how to use it.
- The knocking of plastic will not last long, it quickly grows and the cuts become not accurate;
- If it is planned to install large, wide skirting boards, the brand strip should also be wide;
- the sidewalls need to be reliably stuck so that they do not crumble.
Before cutting a baseboard, you should either purchase the finished knock, or make it yourself. To do this, you can use a simple sheet of paper, or wood bars.
If there is a saw in stock, you can make a knock from a whole piece of wood, cutting the middle and side cuts on the bar
To make a knock, you need: a board for the base, 4 boards for walls and sidewalls, hacksaws, drill, core, supers and confirmation. At first, something is assembled from the boards like a box, in which holes are then cut. Bokovin length-6-8 cm. To create them, a hacksaw or circular saw is used.
Dispers are made at right angles. You need to cut them carefully. The lines must pass in one direction.

Selection of tools for cutting ceiling skirting boards
To correctly and carefully cut off the ceiling plinth, you need to use the tool suitable for cutting. It is chosen depending on the material from which the fillets are made:
Styrofoam. It differs in low strength and is relatively inexpensive, and therefore foam models become more and more popular. Their strength does not particularly affect operational characteristics, since usually the ceiling plinth is not subjected to mechanical loads. An ordinary stationery knife is suitable for cutting.
It can be purchased at a construction store or made with your own hands according to the following instructions:
Three planks 5015 cm chopped with a long rib in the shape of a tripartite, rectangular box. Please note that between the side bars and the transverse plank, the angle of 90 degrees should be observed.
To work with this home.made device, it was convenient and safe, the planks before fastening need to be polished well.
Clusing skirting technology technology
For operational and high.quality work, you need to choose the tool in accordance with the materials of the skirting board and choose a cutting method. If you have a knock, then there will be no particular difficulties in the process. If it is not, then two options are possible: cut by the template and measurements on the ceiling or make this tool yourself.
Features of cutting ceiling skirting boards in Stusl
You need to work with this device extremely carefully so as not to lie the tool and not leave the cuts in unnecessary places. In the process we adhere to the following instructions:
We fix the baguette in Stusl in such a way as it is planned to place it on the wall. The side that will be pressed to the ceiling on Stusl should fit the side of the side.
When cutting and trimming products from foam and polyurethane, remember that these materials are crumbling and pushed, because the tools should be sharp enough, and a strong mechanical effect on them is undesirable.
Cutting technique of ceiling skirting boards according to the template
This method can be used if your angles are even, and you need to cut the baguette exactly 45 degrees. To do this, before cutting the ceiling plinth in the corners, you need to draw a knock on thick paper. We draw two parallel lines and mark the corners under the desired degrees using the transporter.
We place a filler in this case in the same way as on a traditional stizl. Keep in mind that you need to cut off the skirting board, holding the tool in a strictly vertical position.
Rules for cutting ceiling skirting boards on marking
This method is used for cutting skirting boards in cases where there is neither chubs nor details from which it can be made.
To do this, you need to make markings on the wall in this order:
We put the baguette in the corner to the fastener.
Cutting cutting in this way, it is important to accurately draw all lines and mark the points. An error even a few millimeters will cause a gap formation. This method is suitable for cutting and combustion of both the inner and external angle of the ceiling plinth.
Method of cutting ceiling skirting boards without
In order to neatly join in the inner corners of the fillets, you can do without.
We apply the end part of the baguette to a sheet of paper and circle the outline of the convex side. It is more convenient to use a small piece of skirting board (if any).
Ceiling plinth. filler
To do this correctly, it is important to strictly comply with the existing recommendations and the rules of finishing work. And then the result will please you.
There are no difficulties in fastening the filter (the so.called this element): in fact, all varieties of products are attached to reliable glue.
In order to hang a ceiling skirting board, even inexperienced repairmen have no difficulties. Excites them completely different: how to correctly cut the ceiling plinth? In fact, almost every room, no matter what an intricate form it is, is equipped with angles.
And in these inner corners, individual skirting elements should be beautiful and evenly joined. And in the premises of a particularly complex configuration, you will have to wrap up over the outer corners. Let’s try to figure out how to be in each of these situations, and how to cut the desired part with the help of available tools.
Sninch materials and cutting methods
First of all, let’s try to decide what a filler can be made of, and what is the best material to cut.
On sale today you can find foam products (polyvinyl chloride), wood, polystyrene foam and polyurethane.
Perhaps one of the cheapest ones is a foam plinth, which is a fragile, soft and brittle material.
Even fingers can leave dents on them, cuts and defects are easily formed on them. It is quite difficult to cut a beautifully and evenly angle in a skirting board based on polyvinyl chloride.
In an inexperienced master, a large amount of purchased material can go to waste precisely for this reason. This polymer also has high electrostatic properties, which explains its ability to collect dust.
Cutting such a plinth is most convenient with a hacksaw or a sharp building knife.
Polistyle foam products are also inexpensive, although this material is a more strong analogue of traditional foam.
It is also processed by a sharp tool.
Polistyle foam extruded
Sloths made of extruded polystyrene are a little more expensive, they are somewhat denser and it is harder to cut them. But they crumble much less and break.
Therefore, cutting them is more convenient and easier. For this purpose, it is convenient to use a hacksaw or a sharp knife.
Polyurethane skirting boards for the ceiling are currently one of the most expensive.
But they justify their cost: moisture resistant, rather durable and dense, rather elastic.
The baseboard located above the kitchen plate can be deformed and even crackle a little.
They are perfectly cut with a special knife, without forming a baby. But these products are very sensitive to temperature differences.
Wooden skirting boards for the ceiling are quite heavy and dense products, hard and durable.
They are well lended on a special shallow hacksaw. You can also use a reliable metal canvas. So how to cut the ceiling baseboard correctly?
Ready.made factory corners
Note that each master has the opportunity not to pour over the exact clipping and adjustment of the corners.
In a construction store you can purchase a factory corner element, into which the prepared edges of the skirting board are easily inserted.
It is enough to measure the necessary length of the workpiece, and cut it at right angles.
All defects and flaws will hide this special element. But in such a convenient way it is not always possible to use, since the standard dimensions of such factory corners can differ markedly from the size of the plinth itself.
Such corners will stand out with its disproportion, and it will not look very neat. But if the design of the premises and the size of the blanks allow us to use this method, then do not neglect them.
Pruning of the fillets
How to evenly cut the angle of ceiling plinths with its help?
The stall is called a simple tool that is used by carpenters. With it, you can cut any workpiece at the right angle.
It is usually a wooden, metal or plastic tray, on which are made for cutting at an angle of 45 ° and 90 ° special vertical slots.
There are complicated structures on which there is also a hole for the named corners for the implementation of a 60-degree cut.
For professional work, special knock is produced. Its rotary mechanism allows you to fix the cutting canvas in relation to the workpiece at any given angle.
The prepared baseboard is applied to the ceiling, the desired length is postponed.
Then this same bar is inserted into the knock exactly as it will be located on the ceiling. It must be pressed to the far wall of the device. In this position, the plinth is held with the left hand.
The hacksaw canvas should be in such a position so that its angle is 45 degrees, and the handle would get together as much as possible with the hand. Trying to avoid pressure on the saw, carefully cut the workpiece.
Next, in the skirting board, it is necessary to cut off the response bar. It is also placed at the far wall of the tool, holding and clinging, this time, with the right hand.
The position of the hacksaw similar to the previous procedure. its handle comes closer to the hand with an angle of 45 degrees. The skirting board is cut.
Then ready.made, already cut strips are combined. the accuracy of the fitting is checked. It is believed that for better orientation, in the manufacture of the inner angle, it is better to cut with the front part of the product. Places of cuts usually have to be adjusted with a file.
It is most correct in order to observe more accurately the dimensions, to begin to mark the inner angle again, and only after that go to the external.
Otherwise it may happen that along the entire length of the bar will not be enough.
The bar is applied to the ceiling, the size is made in size. Holding on his left hand, the ceiling baseboard is pressed against the closest wall, the knife handle gets closer to the hand. The workpiece is cut off.
The response bar is pressed against the nearest wall, while it holds it with the right hand. The canvas of the hacksaw should be at an angle of 45 °, the handle of the tool comes closer to the hand of the master. A piece of the workpiece is cut off, the angle is neatly joint.
Such processing by the edge of the parts using a wort is good in cases if the angle between the walls is even and straight (90 °).
If its indicators leave much to be desired, then you should use a different method.
Marking on the ceiling
The method with marking on the ceiling allows you to cut off the angle accurately and evenly. He has one drawback. the plinth bar is quite inconvenient to keep on weight during the procedure.
In all other ways, using this method, you will be able to outline the angle for cutting even more accurately than other.
Когда плинтус прикладывается к предполагаемому месту установки, все отклонения размеров и неточности заметны и сразу учитываются.
Cutting the angle
First you need to take a pair of workpieces, then cut them at right angles. Resting the end of the plank to the perpendicular wall, we apply one bar. We outline a fishing line for a trimmer along the contour of the skirting board on the ceiling. Remove the first bar, then also, resting the end of the end against the wall, we attach the bar of the response. In the same way, we mark the circuit for a trimmer along the contour.
The intersection point of two separate lines is a mark on which the workpiece is cut. Each bar is attached to the surface again, on both the point of the future cut is marked. From the found point to the other edge of the plinth plank, we draw a fishing line for a trimmer. We cut the skirting boards according to the previously made outlines, carefully dock, place in the place of their installation.
This method allows you to more carefully process the internal angles.
Pruning of a skirting board without
Agree, not everyone on the farm will have a carpentry tool, but buying it only for a skirting board. the idea is not the most successful. But you still need to cut the corners, because the accuracy of the ceiling is accurate to stake. How to be in this case?
In fact, you can completely do without. There are even two ways to cut the angles of the skirting board without a special tool: resorting to marking on the wall and with the help of a drawn false-sister. Let’s start with the first.
Work is carried out as follows. For the inner angle:
Advanced miter saw techniques (Easiest way to cut angles)
- Attach the bar to the ceiling, which will be installed to the right of the corner. Draw on the ceiling a straight line for a trimmer along the outer edge of the baseboard.
- Attach the bar to the opposite side of the corner and also draw a fishing line for a trimmer on the ceiling.
- The place where the two lines came together, mark the cross. Attach the bar to the corner and transfer the obtained mark to it, and then draw a neat fishing line from it for the trimmer to the lower corner of the workpiece. along this line you will need to cut the baseboard.
- Cut off the required angle with a hacksaw or stationery knife.
- Attach the bar to the right of the corner. Draw a fishing line for a trimmer along the ceiling along the baseboard further from the corner.
- Attach the plinth to the left of the corner. Draw a fishing line for a trimmer along the bar to the mark where it will cross from the first line.
- Transfer two marks to the bar: the first. the place of intersection of the lines on the ceiling, the second is the place where the corner of the room passes. Combine two marks. you will receive a fishing line for a trim of skirting boards. Now it remains only to cut off the angle and, if necessary, adjust the gaps.
Trimming the angle with the help of a false-sister
The third way to cut the angle of the baseboard is not entirely ordinary-using a kind of false-sister. You can make such a “tool” in two ways.
BASEBOARDS WITH NO ANGLE FINDER! VERY EASY WAY
First. draw a knock. To do this, you can use ordinary thick paper or cardboard: draw two parallel lines on the sheet and use the angles with the required degree using a transporter or a simple square. The angle is cut off in almost the same way, as in the case of the use of the carpentry: attach the skirting board to the “instrument”, follow the necessary marks and make an incision along them.
The second way is to make a prototype aft from three wooden planks: connect them in the form of an oblong letter “P” and perform incisions of 45 and 90 degrees. To mark the corners, you can use the same transport.
Cutting the angles of the skirting board without a bin, it is very important not to lose with the length of the bar and directly by the degree of the incision. In order not to make a mistake, at first it is better to cut off the blanks 10 cm longer, then try on dry to the ceiling and then adjust it until you get the desired result. In addition, let’s not forget that not all bathrooms have ideal corners of 90 degrees. you still can not do without adjusting products.
Advice. It is necessary to fix the plinth bar to the ceiling only after you fit the angle of the next plinth harvesting to it. It is best to try on the sections not under the ceiling itself, but on the table. this will take more time, but the cut lines will be more accurate.
Thus, we have several ways to trim the ceiling skirting board: with the help of carpentry, without a bunny, using a kind of false-sister. Whatever option for performing the corners you choose, it is important to do everything verified and accurately-only in this case you will receive a truly effective tool for the final design of the ceiling, thereby making the interior of your bathroom aesthetically completed.
