Wow, after so much frustration, this is the video that showed me exactly how to cut a coving corner. Thanks!
Thank yo… The video helped a lot!
That’s good if the corner is a perfect 90degree angle….most are not, so wouldn’t fit perfectly
I need and opration got two hernias
Thank you! Explained really well. Very helpful.
Beware that cutting skirting board like this only works if your skirting board is lower in height than your mitre box walls, as in this this video. If it’s higher,…best to use a mitre saw.
Very helpful, thank you 🙂
Great video still struggling with getting the angle to join
Thank you very much!👍
great video, simple to follow
hi liked video i cant seem to find out are there mitre boxes that you can adjust to fit wider boards.
Thank you so much for making this simple! New to DIY and trying to learn how to use different tools! So thankful for YouTube!
Shouldn’t an interior cut be a scribe joint Incase the wall isn’t even?
Doesn’t cut straight
This is so helpful thank you so much 🙏🏼
I’m looking for my own place
Why do you use the left side for the coving/crown moulding, but the right side for the skirting/baseboard trim? And can you suggest a way to stabilise the mitre box if I do not have a workbench like that? Thank you!

If the height of the skirtboard surpasses the height of the box It wont work
I wish I could buy you a pint. This is the clearest instructions I’ve seen. After many failed attempts to cut our coving, we found this video and our first cuts after worked perfectly. Thank you
Wow. I’ve watched a lot of these videos and thought I would never get it. This is a great tutorial. Thank you sir

Thank you for this simple, succinct video! It’s straight to the point and answered all my questions in just a few minutes! I’ve been trying to figure out how to cut baseboards without a mitre saw and wasn’t sure how to position the trim or in which direction to cut. Part of my confusion was that you’re actually making bevel cuts, but everybody calls them mitre cuts. Why is it called a mitre box instead of a bevel box?
Very helpful – thank you!!!

OH MY GOD! Thank you so much for just explaining it without all the tips and tricks that so many other people throw in there.
O my his thumb!! Lol

What if your cutting baseboard molding wider than the mitre box
I know this is a really old post, but if anyone is monitoring this, what is the other set of horizontal 45° slots for? Close to the end of the miter box
Brilliant video easy instructions thanks
Saved me alot of time thank you for the great examples !
And I’ve got it finished. Thank you so much
I’ve been baffled by what I was doing wrong. Turns out I had coving on the side furthest away from me when I was cutting
Very helpful ….
What size mitre block should I buy for boards 3 in, as I have never fitted skirting boards before so excuse my noob question
Awesome! thank you
This is exactly what I’ve been looking for! I want straight cross cuts, but am a totally inexperienced person and *do not want anything that spins and cuts stuff*.
Brilliant. Very helpful. Thank you.
Thank you for such an informative video that really helped a lot
Any tricks if the baseboard is bigger than the mitterbox ? The baseboard can fit if it’s flat ( would work for Covin)
Thankyou. Enjoyed and understood this video
I have been searching high and low for how to cut trim with a miter box. There are countless videos on YT but none of them were helpful until this one. Thank you!
