Hi

I have bitten the bullet and decided to instal a fitted wardrobe and despite the accuracy of my user name I feel that I can manage it.

The room that the wardrobe is to be fitted into has (modern plaster) coving and there is enough space above the wardrobe doors to fit coving above them and thereby maintain a fully coved room.

So far so good, I understand I will have a hassle with the mitre bit, but what I can't get my head round is how do I cut the existing coving on the wall accurately so that I can have a nice joint. :confused:

what you need to use is another piece of coving and place it against the existing at a right angle and this will give you the angle that you need to cut at.

For pratice try using 2 pieces of skirting to do the same thing and you will see what i mean.

If your really having problems give me your e-mail addy on msn and i will show you on cam what i mean.
