I need help! I have a nice rope molding which has only a small flat surface on the back side. The trouble I have is when I try to cut the molding at a 45 so that it will go around my cabinets the rope design does not match. I have tried to move the cut but cannot get it to match. What is the trick?? Any help is appreciated. Thanks

Hi pyoung,

You might need to 'cope' one end of the rope.

One end is cut at 90 degrees, and then instaled. The 2nd end is 'coped' around the installed 1st end. (All this assuming you're talking about an INSIDE corner.)

For outside corners, you cut an inside-angled 45 on BOTH ends. This way, they meet at 90 degrees.

My best to ya and hope this helps.

PS: In either 'situation', the inside of the rope isn't seen.

If you cut the 2 pieces at 45-degrees each, using straight cuts, they will never match perfectly. That's because if they match at the peak (the part farthest from the wall), then the base edge (nearest the wall) will be longer for an inside corner or shorter for an outside corner. If you can't "cope" it as suggested above, you might have to shoot for a close match and live with it.
