Baseboard Tricks For EVERYBODY- How To Install Baseboards

2 min read

My favorite tips and tricks for how to install baseboards with perfect corners, inside joints, and more! I spent the last week installing custom milled Sapele baseboards and door casing throughout much of my house. However, I have only done paint-grade baseboards prior to attempting this project. So I had to become an expert finish carpenter quickly. Or at least close enough to an expert that people wouldn’t judge me when they came over and saw the work of someone who makes their living as a woodworker. These are my favorite tips and tricks to get perfect baseboards, even if you aren’t a professional. Check out my blog post for even more tips and tricks that couldn’t fit into this video!
