Question fixing chipped corners

i'm doing a semi-rehab of a home i just bought and i've got two existing outside corners that are very crumbly. (they used to be covered by those wooden corner pieces that go half way up the wall.)

how can smooth these out? the crumbling areas only go about half way up the walls (so it doesn't seem like a vinyl or metal corner bead would work). i've tried using a piece of wood on one side as an "corner" so that i can add mud on the other side; but after i remove the wood, my fix job either crumbles or feels very weak.

any suggestions of materials/methods would be appreciated.

Remove all the loose and crumbly stuff. You should have some corner bead exposed. Re nail the bead. Fill in with a quick set mud. Let dry. Put tape over the entire filled in area. Put more mud over Until nice and flat. Sand when dry.
