Need Help with Cornices

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by merlin, Sep 15, 2003.

  1. Okay so i need to put new gyprock cornices up in a room. Of all the websites i have found they say "cut the ends at a 45 degree mitre" RIIIGHT tried that.. ended up with a gap. I cant get it right.

    Any suggestions? I am using 90mm x 10 mm cornices. Curved. Nothing fancy.


  2. You know all this means is that you're comrer's aren't exactly 90 degrees!

    I've put in laminated floors, and also the beading. Used the mitre saw to cut the beading to the exact angles, and bingo, I got gaps!

    All I can suggest you do is carefully use some filler (my old man did some cornicing, same issue as you - no choice but to use some filler.)

    Cut the first one to 45 degrees and cut the second one to fit...

    The ease with which you can do this depends on just how close your walls are to the 'ideal' straight, flat surfaces at 90 degrees to each other.

    ... or use filler as required ;)

    Shouldn't you have asked this question on "TalkBuilder.Com" ? ;)
  5. Ahh bruce you're a twit. :p

    I worked it out! I did cut them at 45 degrees but there is a specific way they have to go around.

    Granted the room isnt perfectly 90 so i will have to fill it in using TopCoat.

    I'll let you know how it goes. Thanks for the replies bar Bruce... :)
