I have a question on how to handle the miter calculation on a base casing joint.
This isn't ceiling/crown molding so in my mind there is no bevel angle. Which is why I seem to be struggling with an approach.
I want to cap my stair stingers with base molding. The molding would sit flat against the wall. When I get to the bottom of the stair, I need to wrap the base molding around a 90 degree corner to meet up with a hallway wall. Since the stringers are on an angle, when I get to the bottom and cut the base on an angle flush with the corner, the width of the base is actually longer that if it was sitting flat on the floor. So how to I cut the corner miter and match the base to the base on the hallway wall?
Thanks for your help.
