Cutting Cornice

Postby pbp » Mon Sep 21, 2009 9:07 am

I have a living room and we have put a stud wall up to make our kitchen bigger. I now have to fit cornice to two walls to match up to the existing.

Do I have to remove what I have as I wont be making a standard 45 degree cut, or can i cut the cornice to fit up to the existing?

I have tried to do this and it seems extremely hard and wondered if there were any tips please.

What sort of cornice is it????
Is it plasterboard coving or a fancy solid design one?
If its plasterboard coving then its simple to do, just cut your 45 degree angle and cut the back of the coving out where you see the exposed plaster, its kind of hard to explain but try a tester piece first before you cut the full length, you dont have to touch the coving on the solid wall that you're butting up to what so ever.
