Recently, we wanted to put 5 & 1/4 base molding in a room that currently has 4 & 1/4 base molding w/ wainscoating. We thought the original molding was put in over the wainscoating, but it turns out that the wainscoating was cut to meet up w/ the 4 & 1/4 molding. Now it we put larger molding in, part of it will be on the wainscoating and the other part will be on the drywall, which would not work, because we'd be installing molding on an uneven surface. We thought about putting a shim under the wainscoating (where the current molding is) and putting the new molding on top of that, but now we're thinking that the new molding will stick out ****her than the door trim, which might look funny. Any ideas? Also, we thought about leaving the room as is, but we put the larger molding in the next room and now we need to line up the larger molding w/ the shorter molding when there is a peice of corner wall molding between the rooms. Could we cut the corner molding shorter on one wall to go over the higher base molding? Any ideas would be appreciated.

Perhaps you can use a 45 return cut on the higher base to transition to the lower existing base...

okay, cut a 45 in the end, (the run would come to a point) cut another 45 opposite to that, that is a typical return... you would use that cut to step down similar to a crafstman stye to got to the height of the existing base... then again it's hard to figure you exact situation out too, so that may not work for you.

If you want you can post a picture on my web sites forum and link it here so we can see what you talking about...
Can you describe it better Mark? (If you know what I mean that is? )
