    Can you do a better scribe than this, definitely I can, but I use my mitre saw and a jigsaw upside done and sometimes a file or piece of sandpaper to get a super tight fit. But I ask myself could I do much better with only a hand saw since I’ve been so reliant on a mitresaw for so long. I think I’d have to be honest and saw I couldn’t do any better as would be the case for most people with the negative comments

    Corta em 45° fica tudo resolvido

  5. Daniel Rodriguez on May 4, 2022 at 6:57 pm

    That’s good but u wasting more time cutting with hand saw so this kinda good

  6. Tim Warlick on May 4, 2022 at 6:57 pm

    Its called coping ..and its been around since the beginning of time

    Thank you for teaching us and sharing because realy i learn

    Should’ve really included undercutting and scribing to the wall which Is the correct way to finish skirting to an uneven wall. if it isnt a painted finish then gaps aren’t an option, as some people have commented. Also 45 degrees only works on a 90 degree reveal but when are they ever?😂. Always bisect your angles especially if you are going into angled bay or something. Scribing is definitely the right way though. Never internal miters!

    I have to admit I was giggling a bit when I saw you grab that handsaw, but I wasn’t giggling when I saw the finished product.
    I love surprises like this – well done!

    This is very good for a DIY or an amateur who doesn’t have modern tools.

    Have a look at this technique, https://youtu.be/0gJ6kSjZ-gE it’s a very clinical way to do it.

  11. Mike Hopkins on May 4, 2022 at 7:03 pm

    Can’t understand why those know it alls out there gave you a thumbs down ,when you are trying and succeeding in showing a nice and easy way to do a tricky job for the average person out there .
    Don’t be put off by the spoilers of this world.

  12. disklamer on May 4, 2022 at 7:06 pm

    All that and without ten thousand dollars worth of DeFestoki tools, rare tropical orange cedar wood, or CAD.

  13. Waldemar Marchesi on May 4, 2022 at 7:06 pm

    Nothing dap can’t fix

  14. Ciaran Mc Donnell on May 4, 2022 at 7:06 pm

    That’s some skill

  15. 007dunphy on May 4, 2022 at 7:07 pm

    That’s fucking horrendous..

  16. Paul Browne on May 4, 2022 at 7:07 pm

    5 out 10 for me ; )

  17. Kenneth Shanahan on May 4, 2022 at 7:08 pm

    Get a chop saw

  18. Norman Longstaff on May 4, 2022 at 7:08 pm

    Great video everything we need and nothing we don’t Well done

  19. Itachi Uchiha on May 4, 2022 at 7:09 pm

    This is madness why on earth are these videos around showing people how to "scribe" a skirting corner. 1stly it was done that way before mitre saws we’re invented when carpenters had no way to accurately Mitre cut & they used hand saws & coping saws all day so had built up the skill to use them quickly to do this method. Secondly & most importantly the whole point is to get the geometric look of the 45° mitres like the external corners, like a picture frame. with this method your joint line isn’t straight down the centre it waves off following the upper profile of the skirting. Also ridiculous because the first step of this process is to 45 mitre it so just stop there. Yes not all rooms are perfectly square so either fill the gap with caulk if your painting it or if your leaving it as natural wood just sand the rear of the 45° edge down a little if you have slight gap towards the front & vice versa if you have a gap at the back.

  20. None None on May 4, 2022 at 7:10 pm

    Yah it’s called coping

  21. Daniel on May 4, 2022 at 7:12 pm

    The worst coping job I’ve ever seen.

  22. Stuff on May 4, 2022 at 7:13 pm

    Anyone know where to find this video in English?

  23. Richard Del rio on May 4, 2022 at 7:14 pm

    Just 45 them . Much faster.

  24. Tom Chapman on May 4, 2022 at 7:18 pm

    Why not plane the back if chiseling the concrete would fix it

  25. John Lee on May 4, 2022 at 7:18 pm

    You’ll need a ready mix wagon called to fill in that scribe….

  26. Tony capone on May 4, 2022 at 7:22 pm

    Basic stuff for any professional tradesman joiner , a revelation for Diyers .

  27. Matts Channel on May 4, 2022 at 7:24 pm

    A good plasterer should clean there skirting lines but 9 times out of 10 they leave like a little bell cast or a little ridge at the bottom that kicks the skirting out I useally adjust it on the straight cut bit I can kinda judge it by eye now adays as iv done so much skirting but fairplay for cutting your mitre by hand lol I use a mitre saw now its so much easier

  28. Dan breen on May 4, 2022 at 7:25 pm

    You slept with a joiner and stole his tools and went on a 2 week course

  29. matt on May 4, 2022 at 7:27 pm

    How much do you have to pay for 1 meter for skerting

  30. Big T-bizzle on May 4, 2022 at 7:27 pm

    Get some saws bud.

  31. Ian Robinson on May 4, 2022 at 7:30 pm

    Proper joiners use a metal compass with pencil to scribe.

  32. Alexander Rodrigo on May 4, 2022 at 7:31 pm

    Caulk? You need spacer or nail in between the board and wall before you secure it mate square and plum is very important

  33. Barry Laing on May 4, 2022 at 7:33 pm

    Or just throw the saw away and use your teeth to get a better finish.

  34. Amy Pope on May 4, 2022 at 7:33 pm

    Another way instead of pulling out at the top is just going with the wall and scribing the scribe cut to the angle that is no longer 90

  35. Richard Anderson on May 4, 2022 at 7:34 pm

    That’s bloody marvellous. Top job

  36. Too Bad on May 4, 2022 at 7:35 pm

    My favorite part was when he said "after you’ve caulked it and painted it, you PROBABLY won’t see it"!

    I agree with him completely. That joint would look just fine… in somebody else’s house!

  37. Bryant G on May 4, 2022 at 7:35 pm

    Took too long my friend.
    Nice try tho

  38. floyd44 on May 4, 2022 at 7:36 pm

    I że to niby jest łatwiejsze? Jak to wygląda! 👎 Gdyby mój pracownik zrobił coś takiego u klienta, to osobiście bym go zastrzelił…

  39. kevin ohara on May 4, 2022 at 7:38 pm

    Or plane the back of the skirting lol

  40. Fakeplasticgergo on May 4, 2022 at 7:38 pm

    10 out 9 carpenter leave the gaps to decorator to fill 😀 a decorator

  41. Norman Longstaff on May 4, 2022 at 7:41 pm

    Critics… the scribe was great .. That was the purpose of this video

  42. Robin on May 4, 2022 at 7:42 pm

    Brilliant! Will follow exactly what you said. Thanks for your help.

  43. John Cockram on May 4, 2022 at 7:44 pm

    Cheers this helped me out and mine looks great.

  44. John Rutter on May 4, 2022 at 7:45 pm

    50 years later? The old ones are still the best and they still work exactly as they always have done!

  45. LoveEngineering on May 4, 2022 at 7:47 pm

    This looks so stupidly complicated, why don’t just cut both skirtings in 45 angle.

  46. gbwildlife uk on May 4, 2022 at 7:48 pm

    Caulking? What if you want to varnish the skirting?

  47. Roh Michael on May 4, 2022 at 7:49 pm

    Neatly done- experience matters!

  48. Ibidi on May 4, 2022 at 7:49 pm

    As usual it’s left to the Pro- Decorators’ to hide shoddy joints.
    Blinking good video. Thanks Chippie. Trying it this avo.

  49. zara pinder on May 4, 2022 at 7:49 pm

    Hi thank you, doing up my house and can’t afford a carpenter, so I am practicing now. Much appreciated. X

  50. Marvin Williamson on May 4, 2022 at 7:50 pm

    That just a basic scribe!! Learnt that in my first year!! But even your scribe needed scribing!! Little tip carry a block plane!! A couple of runs and that would have fitted sweet!!!
