Quick Fix Skirting Board Internal Mitre


Wednesday 11 July 2018

Getting the mitres right on skirting boards can be a difficult process. Walls are rarely truly plumb, and don't often meet each other at exactly 90 degrees. So, here are a few tips I picked up during my days as a carpenter and joiner. There are two main joints… the internal and external mitre… and I'll tackle the external mitre next issue. For this issue, I'll look at scribing the internal mitre, which elimates any worries about the angle of the walls. I will not look into fixing the boards to the wall, as the method will depend upon the walls, and your preferred option.
