All wrong...

It turns out that I should have read the trim books a little more closely, since we haven't been doing it right. The first problem is a miter saw that doesn't cut the same on both ends. It is a small difference, but that small difference is magnified as you move away from the angle. The other problem is that I was not using a coping cut on the inside corners. I was attempting to miter an inside corner, and apparently, that was not necessary when you are using the large flat stock baseboards. Additionally, coping the inside corners is only for baseboards that are not flat (i.e. the molded baseboard and the cove).

So today I am off to the Home Depot to get a little more lumber and correct those mistakes!
