Not tile but a miter cut question

Figure the pros would know how to do this.

Can't figure out a good way to tie in the molding going down the stairs so figured I'd just terminate and finish up the drywall properly.

I cut the thin strip of molding at 39 degrees and a 45 degree tilt but I'm having problems with the return.

Any idea what the saw needs to be set to and if my current cut is correct.

I want to terminate the trim so it's flush with the wall (but with a return).

Hi Ali, the easiest would be a plinth block. It is a block that you can make to run the trim to that is coming down the skirt board. You can bevel the edges on it too if you wish. I would make it flush with the corner cutting the angle of the stair skirt to the bottom of the block and make the block a bit higher than the trim piece

Certainly not a pro but I agree with Mike, Ali, a plinth is about the only way you can make it work.

I had a similar challenge while remodeling the living and dining room, and took me a lot of "stare at it" time to figure it out.

Ugh. Thanks. If there's one thing worse than my tiling skills, it's my wood working skills.

The issue with a plinth or anything substantial is that corner wraps around again pretty quick and a 8-10" tall plinth would look great as then I still have to terminate the baseboard on the wall immediately behind the staircase into it.

Guess I'll be staring at the stair some more.

That'sa tall base board, Ali, does provide for some head-scratching.

You could make a plinth to the height you need, bevel the top to match the angle of the baseboard on the riser where it dies into the back side of the plinth, fasten it to the narrow face wall, then wrap your base around it. Make it a feature.

My baseboard is 5 1/2". I was thinking if I have to come off the stairs straight and then into a plinth, the plinth would have to be that high (8-10")

I really don't want a 'feature'. I don't like intricate wood work and prefer modern clean (industrial) lines.

The thin 1.5" molding doesn't have the exact same pattern as the baseboard. Similar but not exact. Suppose I could have ripped some baseboard down but gotta draw the line somewhere. I want this project to be done.

a return to the existing base moulding, or a "stop" to die into may fit the bill.
