    you do a external corner cut as if you are going into the wall if that makes sense

    Personally I have only used plaster coving, i tried the foam coving (not sure if this is the same stuff) and didn't like it

    Google return mitre, plenty of vids and descriptions on the net, and indeed some on here.

    Turn it upside down (at the correct angle) and cut it in a mitre box or with a manual mitre saw. Just remember that the cut on the bottom edge (which is now at the top should have a 45 degree cut, the other edge should be a straight cut.

    I use my Nobex Champion with the bi-metal blade when cutting plaster coving.

    I have used a better quality foam coving once. I liked the fact that it was so light. The only real downside was that you have to be very careful when sanding joints, I finished any joins with Red devil OneTime filler.

    coving is available in all kinds of materials. british gypsum stuff is typicl.
    but using any type or size of common coving all you have to do is mitre cut the end - typicly 45* - an use the off-cut as a return mitre/stop end.

    You sound annoyed mate. Why ? Have a look at yourself and think again before posting nonsense or just don't post on here.
