I am currently in the process of having a house built. We have two curved walls (an inside curve and an outside curve), the woodwork is all stained natural. The contractor put some sort of rubber baseboard in that is supposed to look like wood on the curves. However with the natural stain it still looks like rubber and does not even come close to matching the rest of the wood. We talked to the contractor about this and he said that it is impossible to use wood in these situations. I of course don't believe this answer and was wondering how you would go about creating the curved effects with the baseboard.
Thanks for your help.
There are several unknowns that would help in making this decision. What is the radius of the curve? What type of wood are you using? How thick are the other baseboards in the house? What is the profile of the baseboard, flat stock, ranch, colonial, modern, baseboard with base cap? It could be as easy as wetting the backside of the baseboard to laminating thinner veneers to custom making tight radius. You are right though....there is a way.
