Coving installation and cutting mitre angles correctly

Postby Yammers » Sat Apr 18, 2020 11:29 am

Good morning.

I am in the process of planning to decorate my bed room. One of the things that I would like to do is put up some coving. Now I know that my corners and walls not 100% straight. So my question is as follows. When using a powered mitre saw and after finding the angles of your courier do you swivel the mite saw for example to 46 degrees then tilt the blade to the same angle or would that tilt always be 45. Are there any diy Dr videos on this process from start to finish

Hi yammers,
Assuming you place the coving in your mitre saw as though it was in the wall/ceiling corner you only have one angle to consider, either + or - around 45 deg.
