Fitting kitchen / bathroom plinths

Postby otherton » Thu May 17, 2007 6:31 pm

Hi All,
I'm fitting some units in an ensuite to take a basin. I'm having problems with the plinth as it has two returns on it, therefore giving me two external corners to deal with. I've tried mitres, but the laminate chips and gettinga tight fit is impossible. Should I just butt them, and use edge tape on the exposed end of the main front piece?

Either that or use a timber corner piece moulding. These can be bought in any DIY store.
