Question

I just finished a Pergo installation and I am in the process of installing the wallboards. However, I am unsure about how to cut the pieces to fit around my rounded drywall edges.

Is there a special gadget that will make this easier? Or am I stuck trying to cut that middle piece without losing a finger?

Also, what's best to attach the wallboard? Liquid Nails, or finishing nails? Thanks!

Are you asking a dry wall question or a base molding question? The metal bull nose corners and the molded round corner molding base is available from building supply and home centers such as Home Depot.

I'm asking about the molding.... The problem is that I already have the Pergo wallbase. If I get one of the prefab pieces from Home Depot, it won't match, right?

Fred:

I think I know what Stuart is trying to say? The only method I've used in this case is to make four 22 1/2 cuts if it's a 90 outside corner. That little center piece that probably only measures 1 1/2" should be cut from a longer board to prevent injury.

Anotherwords make one 22 1/2 cut from a 12" piece, make your mark and cut it. You should have what you need, and use liquid nail to attach it, as a nail will always split it.

Gottcha! Stuart would really like a miter saw about now... and maybe long finger nails.
