How to make an angle on a ceiling plinth with a bin. step-by-step instruction
Ceiling baseboard is a decorative element that separates ceiling wallpaper or tiles from wallpaper on the wall. He completes the appearance of the room and gives the design completeness. However, in order to correctly join the two strips of the baseboard in the corner, it is necessary to correct it correctly. How exactly this is done? There are several ways to achieve the planned.
The easiest way is to fit the strips of the skirting board, cutting it with the help of. This device is a P-shaped design (something like a box without one of the walls). In the sidewalls, cuts are made in advance, which are further used as a template for cutting both skirting boards and other materials.
Cutting skirting boards at at an angle with the help of a bunny, watch in this video.
- It allows you to accurately cut the edges of the baseboard according to the finished template.
- It is easy to do it with your own hands using four planks, a square and a saw. In this case, you can cut out template grooves for every taste depending on the required type of work.
- With it, it is easy to form both the internal and external angle.
The only drawback of this method applies only to those cases when the knock is made with your own hands: it is necessary to carefully, in advance, outline lines for template slots with the help of the transporter, without deviating a degree.
Cutting the angle on the ceiling skirting boards according to the strules has its own characteristics. Perhaps you will also be interested to familiarize yourself with the article on the topic, plaster of the walls with your own hands, types of plaster.
For the outer corner. the baseboard is applied to the right side of the rushed (or. to the closest to itself, if the template is placed across the desktop), is aligned on the plane and wall, and then cut off or sawn off using the template.
For the internal. also, but in the reverse order: application occurs on the left or far side of the stir.
Both cut plinths are applied in place without gluing. If there are cracks. fragments are driven to each other with a knife. Small defects can later be covered with putty. It will also be useful to familiarize yourself with the article how to make a putty for walls with your own hands.
Hand Right important: even when using a template, cutting angles requires a certain skill. Therefore, for the finisher, doing this for the first time, it is recommended to first practice on the unnecessary residues of the skirting board, cutting them, and trying to join without cracks.
Features of cutting
Let us consider in more detail how to properly cut the angle on the ceiling skirting board using different materials.
Polyurethane foam (in colloquial. just polyurethane) is a very good material for ceiling skirting boards. Due to good flexibility, it definitely adjacent to the base (the junction of the wall and ceiling), even if, due to building errors, the walls and ceiling are uneven. In addition, polyurethane is well washed, and therefore can serve for a long time. Low resistance to loads here is not a problem: there is almost no load on the ceiling plinth. We also have a separate article where the question of how to make a drywall ceiling and suspended ceilings made of drywall with your own hands are more details.
Cut the polyurethane skirting boat with the help of the stirred:
- Measure the wall and ceiling in the area of the junction.
- Select a suitable stupor template for cutting.
Foam is also often found as an element of decorative decoration of rooms. Its characteristic feature is increased fragility, so it is extremely accurate to adjust it at the place, the foam does not tolerate any deformations.
Cut it with the help of the rushed as follows:
- Plinth plates are laid in the knock.
- A cut is made. Unlike polyurethane polyurethane. soft material, and it can be cut even with a knife or better. stationery or construction cutter. It is better to use not a large, but even wooder, metal dick or ruler here. In extreme cases, you can make marks with a pencil corresponding to the slots of the stir, connect them using a ruler. and conduct a slot.
Asterisk is important: foam is a fragile material, so the cutting tool should be sharpened as best as possible.
Polystyrene has the same properties as the foam. Therefore, polystyrene skirting boards are cut as well as foam. The main thing here is the most acute sharpening of the cutting edge of the tool to avoid dyeing. At the same time, there is no need to process the ends with sandpaper: their edges are usually already quite relief to ensure a good adhesion of glue.
A wooden skirting board is infrequent and is expensive, so it is necessary to approach its processing extremely responsibly. Cutting technology looks something like this:
- The cut end is fixed in the stizl.
- Cut is made. You can do this with an ordinary hacksaw on wood, but it is better to use a special saw or saw for metal to avoid too wide sawing.

Asterisk is important: when fitting, you need to be extremely careful, it is better to close the uneven cut with a decorative lining or putty for wood than to open a too large array of wood.
The skirting board made of plastic (polyvinyl chloride, PVC) is now widespread now. It is convenient because:
- Easily cut by any tool.
- Flexible, can be used even in uneven corners.
- Usually has internal cavities, which means-can be used as a cable channel for laying electrical wiring or fiber-optic lines for the Internet.
Cut a plinth from PVC as well as polyurethane. However, you need to take into account: the best tool, a hacksaw for metal with small teeth, is suitable only for thick skirting boards, in thin it can tear out pieces. Therefore, the best option for thin products is a stationery or a construction cut or a sharpened knife. To use it, you need a certain dexterity, so it is better to practice in advance on scraps or sheets of thin plastic.
A few words about tools and materials
Floor skirting boards are now made of wood or polyvinyl chloride (PVC), in other words, from plastic. The ceiling fillets have a little more list:
The assortment of ceiling skirting boards is much wider than that of the floor.
- Polyurethane. these skirting boards have good elasticity and can bend radial and other curved surfaces, but they need to be cut to clear corners in any case;
- Foam. the easiest budget option, the price of foam plinths is low and they are cut very easily;
- PVC. the principle is the same as the floor skirting boards, but the lineup is much wider;
- Wooden. similar to the floor, only there are still wide models;
- Gypsum-with the advent of polyurethane and foam, gypsum ceiling fillets faded into the background, firstly, they are heavy, and secondly, fragile. But in fairness to mention them is worth.
Since it is impossible to correctly cut the ceiling skirting board and its flooring with a good tool, we will dwell on this issue a little more.
The best, almost ideal tool for cutting any skirting boards and not only is a trim saw with a rotary bed. The high.speed disk makes smooth and exact sections, and the bed in these units turns to any corner. The problem is only in the serious cost of this tool.
The end of the saw is almost the perfect tool for cutting skirting boards and not only their.
It is believed that one of the best hand tools for the exact cut of small bars is a training saw. In principle, this is true, but I will tell you honestly, really high.quality saw, even with the current assortment it is not easy to find. If you still decide to buy a similar tool, then take a saw with a small tooth.
The training saw is convenient when working with a stupid.
Theoretically, polystyrene and polyurethane can be cut by any sharp and durable knife. But at the same time you need to have a firm hand and at least a little experience in cutting foam. Plus wide fillets with a knife is very problematic to cut.
Without experience, making a clear cut with a knife is very problematic.
Personally, in the absence of ending, I use only a hacksaw for metal. It is suitable for cutting absolutely any material, from foam and to wood. By the way, they often ask the question of how to cut a plastic skirting board for the floor, and so. take a hacksaw for metal and you definitely won’t make a mistake.
For cutting skirting boards, a hacksaw for metal is considered one of the best tools.
Three working methods for pruning plinths
In floor and ceiling skirting boards, the instructions for cutting are almost the same. But if on the floor of the crooked corner you can cover something, then on the ceiling this is already a problem, so we will pay more attention to how to cut the ceiling skirting boards.
Classic knocking method
Classic knock is a P-shaped bed with slots in opposite sides. A suitable part is put in this bed and is sawn through the slots in the sides. The idea is not new, the instrument is already several hundred years old, but, despite the simplicity of how to correctly cut the angle of the ceiling skirting board with the help of such a cashed, not everyone knows.
How to cut a ceiling skirting board in the corner with the help of a classic cherished, not everyone knows.
Tip: Ceiling skirting boards when cutting are applied to that side of the cubble, which is closer to you, and floor skirting boards, on the contrary, need to be applied to the side of the instrument from you. This is not a dogma, but this is much easier to work.
It’s easier to work with floor skirting boards, as the knock lies on a horizontal plane easier for you to navigate in the position of the skirting board. People are most often mistaken when cutting a ceiling fillet, it is simply incorrectly invested in the tool. There is a simple but important rule here.
Important: the board of the ceiling fillet, which touches the wall, should be directed to the upper edge of the side of the side of the station, and that part of the skirting board, which borders on the ceiling, is placed on the bottom.
At the corner, as you know, 2 sides, and so, in order to less mistakes, accustom yourself to ensure that the bar, which will be mounted on the right side of the corner, put into the knock on the right, and the bar, which is attached to the left, put it in the hand on the left. Details about the intricacies of the use of classical cushed is described in the video in this article.
How to correctly cut the inner and outer corner of the ceiling filler.
In addition to the classic P-shaped, there are two more types of such designs-this is a professional and rotary tool. As for the professional option, it is used only by masters. The device is quite bulky, but it turns at any angle and has a hacksaw, which can be fixed in the right position.
Professional knocking with the possibility of fixing hacksaws and details.
The rotary device can be safely called “” stupid. Of the advantages, there is only the possibility of a clear fixation of the angle of turning the bar. On the one hand, they simply work. put a corner, put it to the baseboard and cut off. But on the other hand, you need to get used to such an instrument, if you do not have an experience with a hacksaw, then you should not take a rotary knock.
Tip: when choosing a classic P-shaped chose, firstly do not take Chinese products. And secondly, try to buy models with the possibility of rigid fixation of the part inside, one of these models is shown in the photo from below.
With a stall with the possibility of fixing the part inside it is much more convenient to work.
Temple cutting method
Most often, both ceiling and floor skirting boards need to be cut under 45º. If a specialized tool is not nearby, then improvised knock can be drawn on a notebook leaflet. From the school geometry course, we know that the diagonal of any square in relation to the base has an angle of inclination 45º.
Postpone the angle of 45º by applying the skirting board to the diagonal of the square.
Then you need to draw a square and hold 2 diagonals in it. this will be the desired 45º. You just have to properly attach the baseboard to the leaf and mark. True, in order to cut off the plinth without guides to cut off a good eye and a faithful hand.
The method is universal applied
Cutting under 45º is a common option, but what to do if you need a different angle, and only a hacksaw and a pencil are available? It turns out that there is a very simple way out of this situation. Plus, this method is universal, it is suitable for both external and internal angles.
over, I can assure you that those angles that visually seem straight a couple of degrees have deviations. As a result, you buy a good tool, cut out clearly 45º, and when joining the gap between the skirting boards “crawls out”. Here this problem disappears. And then, using an example, we will consider how to cut a ceiling baseboard in the inner corner.
Take a filler, apply it on one side of the corner and with its help draw 2 lines, along the wall and on the ceiling.
Tip: so that the lines are inconspicuous, they can be drawn not with a pencil, but, for example, a nail or a knife tip.
If you tried, as you could, but a small gap at the junction of it still “got out”, do not be upset. In wooden filters, such a gap is easily covered with furniture wax. To cover the gap on skirting boards made of polyurethane, foam, plastic or gypsum, putty is perfect. Naturally, the color of the composition should coincide with the color of the skirting board.
Now you already know how to cut a ceiling plinth, but even the most accurate markup, followed by a jewelry cut, will not make any sense if you make a mistake with the length of the profile. The length of the filler should be measured very carefully, given all the possible irregularities (bulges and cavities) of the walls, which may affect the size after installation. Also, do not forget about the slope of the skirting boards, both when cutting and when assembling them (also read about the methods of installation of kitchen skirting boards).
No matter how expensive repairs you start, you are unlikely to avoid irregularities on the border of the wall and ceiling. In order to hide them, they use a ceiling plinth.
Types of ceiling skirting boards
Today, a huge assortment of ceiling skirting boards is presented on the market. Here are from what materials they are produced:
A wide variety of ceiling skirting boards allows everyone to choose the right. Ceiling skirting boards are narrow and wide, simplest and decorated with exquisite drawings and reliefs. So do not neglect this construction find, because the ceiling plinth will give a completely finished look of your repair and decorate any room.
Since the installation of a ceiling skirting board is not a difficult matter, many prefer not to spend extra money on qualified workers, but to fix them on their own. How to cut and attach a ceiling plinth correctly and attach? Consider this issue further.
How to cut the corners of the ceiling plinth?
Since an ordinary person does not have many specialized construction tools in the arsenal, we offer to get acquainted with the recommendations on how to cut the angle of ceiling skirting boards using simple tools. For this you will need:
Knock. this is a tray with special slots at different angles. Such a tool is a necessary thing in the household, besides it is inexpensive. To cut the angles of the skirting board, you just need to take a knock with angles of 90 and 45 degrees.
To cut the corner of the ceiling plinth, the following actions should be performed:
- We apply the baseboard to the ceiling and measure it;
- We lay the baseboard to the bottom so that its lower part is pressed against the wall of the tool;
- Gently cut the baseboard with a saw on the metal along the slot of the tray, where the angle is 45 degrees. Do not crush much so as not to damage the baseboard;
- Similarly, the adjacent skirting board is cut along another slot of 45 degrees;
- Attach two skirting boards to the place of gluing them and, if necessary, eliminate small irregularities with a sharp knife.
As you can see, there is nothing complicated in this operation. But how to cut off the angle of ceiling plinth, if you don’t have? There is an exit. It is necessary to act as follows:
If in this case you can’t make the cut even, draw on a sheet or plank of a line with a intersection of 45 degrees and attach a skirting board to them so that the line for the trimmer complies with the indicated corner. It is better if someone will help you in this case and fix the ceiling skirting board on such a home-made stuplet so that you can cut the edges exactly.
It happens that the irregularities of the walls do not allow you to flatterly glue the baseboard, even after its perfect pruning. In this case, you need to determine the degree of trimming individually. That’s why it is so convenient to use a home.made drawn stall.
In order not to spoil the ceiling skirting board before cutting it, practice doing it in small pieces. Thus you can “fill your hand” and make a cut more confidently every time.
How to cut off the ceiling plinth and floor
The most difficult thing when installing ceiling and floor skirting boards is the design of the angle. It is necessary to join the strips in such places very carefully, otherwise the appearance of the decor will be hopelessly spoiled. Of course, you can use quite aesthetic special angular elements.
However, the strips coasted naturally usually look more harmonious. And you will not have to spend money on additional details in this case. Therefore, further in the article we will consider how to cut the angle of the ceiling plinth correctly and how to process the seam.
Pruning of the skirting board in Stusl
Fetling is one of the most important tools for processing the baguette, which allows you to perform cuts on the skirting boards with the desired inclination for even docking. Consider the features of working with fillets using this device.
In order to correctly and evenly cut the ceiling skirting board using the rushed in the corners, certain rules must be followed.
- Cutting blanks using the cushed is suitable only for straight angles of equal to 90 °.
- When cutting a baguette intended for the ceiling, it is applied and sawn on the inside of the inside of.
- The workpiece is installed in a position as it will be mounted in the future on the ceiling.
- Cutting is carried out on the front side of the baguette.
- The side, which is subsequently glued to the ceiling, should be tightly pressed to the bottom of the tray during cutting.
- For each type of material, it is recommended to use a certain cutting tool: a hacksaw or knives. good when cutting soft materials such as foam, saw. preferable for wood.
Ceiling angles can be internal and external, or external, so there are differences in the preparation of the baguette, which consist in the methods of docking the planks and different slopes of the slices. To facilitate the work with the stupor, it is useful for making visual clues in the form of small stickers with inscriptions, as shown below.
The main attention should be paid to the accuracy of cutting the blanks at the right angle. It is recommended to start working from the inner corner, and then proceed to the outer. Otherwise, it is possible that there is not enough baguette length. Schematically, cutting actions look like the figures below.
Cutting fillets for the inner corner
The internal corners are always present in the rooms. therefore, they will have to collide with them when installing skirting boards on the ceiling. In this case, when cutting the baguette, we follow the algorithm:
- We measure the necessary length of the workpiece, putting it on the ceiling at the place of future installation;
- We place the bar in the knock along the near wall so that its location coincides with how it will be mounted on the ceiling;
- Holding the baseboard, put a cutting tool in a groove with a slope of 45 ° and cut the workpiece without unnecessary pressure;
- We do the same actions in the mirror reflection for the second, adjacent bar. For the convenience of cutting, you can turn the knock from the bar installed in it under the desired hand.
Knowing how to properly cut with the help of the nation of the inner corner on the ceiling plinth, you can easily decorate the more complex. external angles.
Cutting fillets for the outer corner
The external corners in the room are not found so often, but they require a particularly thorough cutting of the fillets and the exact docking of their sides. Unlike internal, small external gaps are more noticeable and it is difficult to hide them. It is also necessary to take into account some features when working with external angles. It’s just to do it, observing certain rules:
It remains to join the cut off the baget planes and check the accuracy of cutting. Taking in pairs chopped parts of the baguette, we join them, forming an internal or outer angle. If the slicing of the strips was carried out accurately and accurately, then the edges of adjacent planks perfectly coincide with each other.
If there are small irregularities and roughnesses, it is allowed to work on them with a sharp knife, clean it with a file or sandpaper fixed on the bar.
The layout shows how a properly chopped and mounted filler at the inner and outer corners will look in the finished form.
Following all the rules and principles of working with special tools in the preparation of fillets, you can easily independently install any ceiling skirting boards.
How to cut ceiling plinths in the corners with a stupid and without it?
The installation procedure of fillets on the ceilings seems easy enough, but requires specific techniques to successfully complete the repair. Often we cut the corners of the ceiling skirting boards is absolutely wrong, which leads to a reduction in its operation and low quality of repair work. The correct docking, evenly fixed edges is a completely achievable result if you use the recommendations of experienced specialists.
This material is designed for decorative decoration of the ceiling zone, its visual compartment from the walls and shelter of the joints of diverse finishing elements. Almost any option of decorative design, interior design involves the use of such details. Otherwise, the room will look unfinished.
To fix this part, fillets are used that join the ceiling with glue. But the problem arises. how to correctly cut the ends of the fillets so that they successfully converge with each other. There are premises of a non.standard configuration, which requires ingenuity for normal docking of the material. How to cut ceiling plinths in the corners? There are different trimming and docking options. with or without their use tools.
The choice of fastening option depends on the type of product:
- From PVC. the cheapest, but also the most brittle, inclined to defects, but easy to use, it can be cut with a knife.
- Polystyrene foam. also inexpensive, fragile, requiring scabbard for metal, although it is easily cut. Another option is slightly more expensive. from extruded polystyrene foam, it is more difficult to cut it, but it crumbles less.
- Polyurethane. the most expensive and moisture resistant, durable and elastic. It is more difficult to work with it, it is deformed at high temperatures.
- Wooden. dense and heavy material, cut only with hacksaw.
Finishing installation: Features
Many owners of houses and apartments are often in the midst of repair work are puzzled by the question of how to properly cut a ceiling skirting board in the corners. The problem is that there is no technical ability to make an incision at an angle of 45 degrees. To perform such manipulations, an important docking at the boundaries of the external and internal corners of the canvas, which is quite problematic.
The specifics of the ceiling option is not only in the steep position of the canvas. The mount is placed at the base at an angle from 38 to 45 degrees. The difficulty is to carry out a cut of 45 degrees. It is difficult to combine the cut edges from the inside, the gaps between them appear, aesthetics are disturbed.
For the most accurate cut, a special angular element is used, which is inserted into the edge of the skirting board. it will help to hide the errors when cutting. This element will emphasize the angles in the room, you need to approach the choice of such a part responsibly.
What tools can be used?
The feasibility of using certain tools is associated with the materials from which the plinth will be made.
Table. one. Varieties of materials and features of their use.
Using the factory corners. an alternative to cutting and cutting
Instead of cutting skirting boards, you can use ready.made corners that are sold in the same construction stores. In this case, the main skirting board can simply be measured and cut off in the usual way, at a right angle, and then attached to the corner with an angular element.
Corps for ceiling skirting boards from PVC
The lack of corner elements is that they are real and visually greater than the skirting board, which will be noticeable. This can ruin the view of the room. It is also inconvenient to use the corners where the walls do not join strictly at an angle of ninety degrees. But in most cases they look great.
Before starting work
The choice of the correct width of the baguette is the key to a beautiful interior. An important role in the sawing process is also played by the method by which you do this. We want to give you a couple of recommendations that will help to achieve their plan.
So, how to choose the width of the material and how to cut the ceiling baseboard in the corners:
- The prepared surface of the walls is not a standard of evenness, use planks of smaller width, as they are more flexible and will be able to close the maximum number of defects. Accordingly, the opposite, the more perfect the surface, the larger the width of the molding can be, however, keep in mind. mount a narrow baguette in rooms with low ceilings so as not to reduce them visually;
- Always apply the left side of the corner to the stitches while dripping on the left, the right. on the right. In addition, it should be the side of the tool closer to you, distant. for floor moldings. Please do not confuse.
Below we will deal with the set task, where you will find out. how to cut the corners of the ceiling plinth correctly and with the greatest quality.
There is one nuance of this process that you should never forget about. We always look at the ceiling below, therefore, when the bar is placed in the knock (to the wall closer to you), it must be turned upside down.
The upper part of the molding will then have below, and the lower, respectively, at the top. Thus, there will be no gaps between the planes of the angle when they connect.
- Take measuring tools, for example, roulette, and pencil. Start marking from the inner angle, so you will not miss the external. It may happen that there is not enough baguette length and you have to do many joints;
- Apply molding to the ceiling surface and mark the dimensions;
- Prepare a knock and a hacksaw for metal. Press the baguette to the instrument near your side;
- Keep a tick with your hand and select the position of the hacksaw in which the corresponding angle of connection will be set. These can be standard parameters. 45, 90, or 135º, or arbitrary, for which it is necessary to push the knock into the chosen degree;
- Cut the workpiece with a hacksaw;
- Install the opposite bar to the near wall of the tool and fix it with your hand;
- Put the chosen degree on stuplet and cut the workpiece with a hacksaw for metal;
- Coasten the resulting plinth planks.
Tip: if the walls are interconnected at a right angle, only in this case you will help you in the work of the knock, otherwise you will have to fit your own hands.
There is a professional knock, which has a rotary platform and can be extended to obtain arbitrary angles, as well as for home use, where special opportunities are limited. Usually in the repair it is enough to use the second option.
So, the basic principle. ceiling strips are cut off at the closest wall of the tool, we hope you have not forgotten.
- Measure the required baguette length, applying it to the ceiling surface;
- Put the barbood bar in the knock, while its position should fully correspond to the location of the baguette on the ceiling;
- Press the bar to the near wall of the tool;
- Select the corresponding degree of the cut, most often it is 45. Make sure that the knife handle is as close as possible to the hand holding the bar to make the cut as accurately as possible;
- Cut the workpiece, but do not apply unnecessary efforts to a hacksaw;
- Prepare and cut off the opposite baguette bar, not forgetting that it should be pressed against the near wall;
- Select the corresponding angle of the cut for it, leaving a minimum distance between the knife handle and the hand holding molding;
- Cut the edge of the bar.
It remains to check the correctness of the docking of the segments, and if everything corresponds to expectations, install them in place.
How To Cut Flat Crown THE EASY WAY!
Tip: Start cutting from the front of the molding, then you can orient it on the spot as accurately as possible. The corners of the wooden baguette after cutting, treat and adjust the file.
How to make the corners of the ceiling baguette without rushed
For the first time deciding to make a frame on the ceiling, the beginner does not see any problem in this, but in vain. We advise you to immediately take into account the cost of a certain amount of material, which will just have to be thrown away.
Alas, at what angle to cut the ceiling baseboard depends only on the connection of the walls with each other. Not everyone corresponds to direct, for which it is enough to simply cut off the bar under 45 °. Often there are parameters corresponding to 85 or 95 degrees, but this is already a problem for beginner finishes.
If you are the owner of an apartment built in the last century, this was generally considered the norm. The fact is that when you simply cut off the bar under 45 ° and install on the ceiling, there will be gaps between them, which will then have to be sealed with sealant or putty. We will try to help you solve this problem with minimal costs, since the price of not every molding penny.
So, how to correctly cut the corners of the ceiling skirting board for the inner angle:
Prepare a tool that will need in work.
- Take the molding and put it to the selected corner. Orientate it in the same way as it will be installed in the end. Draw a fishing line for a trimmer along the bar with a pencil and remove it;
- Do the same procedure with the second filler as with the previous. In this case, it must adjoin the connection site;
- As a result, you get a marked area;
- Take the baguette, lean it against the marking. Transfer to it the intersection point of two lines drawn by you earlier;
- Draw a line from it to the opposite edge of the filler, which will be a line of cut. With the second baguette, do the same.
Speaks with a sharp knife or hacksaw on metal cut the edge of the molding.Check out the two resulting baguetes and attach them to the corner. There should be no gap between them, otherwise make correction of surfaces with a knife.
If it seemed to you that work to create a beautiful interior using a ceiling baguette is quite complicated, this is only at first glance. Do everything according to our instructions and you will quickly understand the essence of the process. The main thing is to observe accuracy and correctly calculate the amount of material for work.
Any work has nuances, but they cannot be perceived with trifles. In order for pruning to go carefully and without problems, you need to pay attention to several points.
- Correct measurements. the most important thing in any work. To mark the blanks for the inner angle, the measurement begins precisely from it.
- Before cutting off both planks for the outer corner, they do not forget that for it they will “peek” for a length equal to the width of the products.
- Fixation of ceiling baguettes begin only after several checks carried out. When the edges of the skirting boards are perfect, then you can start gluing them (with self.tapping fastening).
- To correct the connected blanks, you can use files or files. For polystyrene and both types of polystyrene foam, it is necessary to take thin, sharply bidders.
Since any debut rarely passes without errors, it is recommended to start with training on scraps. Therefore, when buying it is better to add 10-15% to the length of products. So it can be guaranteed that the material is enough not only for preparation, but also for the entire room, even if the flaws still appear in the process of work.
The first method using
Professional knocking with a rotary hacksaw usually looks in the shape of a tray with vertical holes for a hacksaw. It can be made of wood, metal or plastic. This tool is the most ancient and simplest carpenter tool, designed to cut wooden parts at an angle of 90 ° and 45 °. There are types of such a device for professional work, with a rotary mechanism, in them a cutting tool can be rotated and fixed in any position.How to correctly cut off the ceiling skirting boards are divided into internal and external, the method of docking on them is slightly different.
If necessary, you can make a knock with your own hands. To do this, you will need three scraps from plywood or boards of the same size. At first they are applied in the form of an inverted letter “P” and mark the angles. Then, according to the marking, cuts under the hacksaw are cut almost to the very bottom, and the boards are twisted.
- We make the right measurements.
- Install the strip of the baseboard in the knock so that this position exactly coincides with the placement on the ceiling.
- The skirting board should be tightly pressed against the opposite wall. Hold and press with a free hand.
- Put a hacksaw at an angle of 45 ° in a special hole and cut off the part.
The adjacent part must be cut off in the same way, only in mirror reflection, as shown in the photo.
When cutting soft materials (PVC, polystyrene foam), a hacksaw for metal or a regular construction knife is used. Then the work will be neat and with even edges.
- Measure the length of the baseboard from the nearest wall to the outer corner, leave a fishing line for a trimmer on the inside with a pencil, indicating the desired length. It must be taken into account that the edge (its upper part) should go a little out.
- The skirting board is moved into a knock and cut off.
- The adjacent bar should also be measured with a margin and cut off in a mirror reflection to the first part.
We try on the ceiling skirting board: the docking of the parts should be perfectly flat. If the result is not achieved and there are irregularities at the joints, you can cut the edges with an ordinary knife to an ideal docking. We check the even docking on the video is well described by all the nuances:
Useful tips for cutting ceiling skirting boards
Slotus cutting rules in Stusl
When working with the stall, two points must be taken into account:
- The inner corner of the ceiling skirting board is formed from two elements: the first is put on the right into the knock and cut it to the right, we start the second on the left and cut it out from left to right to right to right.
We start the first part of the outer corner on the left and cut off from right to left, we start the second on the right and cut off from left to right to right.
In addition, you need to know such nuances before performing the cutting of the baseboard:
Before proceeding with the cutting of the baguette with the help of the rushed, try cutting off the trial bar to prevent errors.
You can make measurements correctly by measuring the length of the internal angles of the bar along the inside, and the outer ones from the point of the inner angle to the width of the tall in the deeper of the room.
If the baguette is installed under the stretch ceiling, then it should only be attached to the wall. The adhesive composition should in no case get on the vinyl canvas.
The final fastening of the baseboard should be carried out only after the accurate fit of the bar.
If the corners and walls in the room are even, then the adjusted can be done on the floor.
When installing baguettes, there may be a need to adjust them several times, so stock up on tools and patience.
Instead of the template and the rushed, you can cut in the corner between the wall and the floor, or by moving the table to the wall. In this case, on the wall, ceiling and baguette, the angle of cutting of the end should be noted.
If you are interested in the question of how to cut a ceiling skirting board without a bunny, and you do not have time to use templates, then you can purchase special corner inserts in advance. They will hide the cracks, but they will perform and stand out on the coating.
If you have a plinth of valuable wood, then cut and install it very carefully, since a large number of putty for setting up joints will be too noticeable, and painting a baguette is an inappropriate solution, because you will hide the natural texture of the array.
Polystyrene foams are not necessary to fit each other in front due to the softness of the texture, but wooden and plastic models should be well joined.
If the trapezoidal niches on the wall need to be bypassed on top with a plinth, then we will join the pieces at an angle different from the straight. The skirting board is cut off in this case at an angle equal to half the joint. For example, if the walls are joined at an angle of 120 degrees, then we cut a filler at an angle of 60 degrees.
How to cut a ceiling plinth. look at
We got acquainted with the question of how to cut the corners of the ceiling skirting board with a stupor, using a template or the marking method. Of course, you can try the trim “by eye”, but then the result will be appropriate. Adhering to the instructions we proposed, you quickly and correctly cut off a filler at the right angle.
Pruning of the fillets
How to evenly cut the angle of ceiling plinths with its help?
The stall is called a simple tool that is used by carpenters. With it, you can cut any workpiece at the right angle.
It is usually a wooden, metal or plastic tray, on which are made for cutting at an angle of 45 ° and 90 ° special vertical slots.
There are complicated structures on which there is also a hole for the named corners for the implementation of a 60-degree cut.
For professional work, special knock is produced. Its rotary mechanism allows you to fix the cutting canvas in relation to the workpiece at any given angle.
The prepared baseboard is applied to the ceiling, the desired length is postponed.
Then this same bar is inserted into the knock exactly as it will be located on the ceiling. It must be pressed to the far wall of the device. In this position, the plinth is held with the left hand.
The hacksaw canvas should be in such a position so that its angle is 45 degrees, and the handle would get together as much as possible with the hand. Trying to avoid pressure on the saw, carefully cut the workpiece.
Next, in the skirting board, it is necessary to cut off the response bar. It is also placed at the far wall of the tool, holding and clinging, this time, with the right hand.
The position of the hacksaw similar to the previous procedure. its handle comes closer to the hand with an angle of 45 degrees. The skirting board is cut.
Then ready.made, already cut strips are combined. the accuracy of the fitting is checked. It is believed that for better orientation, in the manufacture of the inner angle, it is better to cut with the front part of the product. Places of cuts usually have to be adjusted with a file.
It is most correct in order to observe more accurately the dimensions, to begin to mark the inner angle again, and only after that go to the external.
Otherwise it may happen that along the entire length of the bar will not be enough.
The bar is applied to the ceiling, the size is made in size. Holding on his left hand, the ceiling baseboard is pressed against the closest wall, the knife handle gets closer to the hand. The workpiece is cut off.
The response bar is pressed against the nearest wall, while it holds it with the right hand. The canvas of the hacksaw should be at an angle of 45 °, the handle of the tool comes closer to the hand of the master. A piece of the workpiece is cut off, the angle is neatly joint.
Such processing by the edge of the parts using a wort is good in cases if the angle between the walls is even and straight (90 °).
If its indicators leave much to be desired, then you should use a different method.
Marking on the ceiling
The method with marking on the ceiling allows you to cut off the angle accurately and evenly. He has one drawback. the plinth bar is quite inconvenient to keep on weight during the procedure.
In all other ways, using this method, you will be able to outline the angle for cutting even more accurately than other.
Когда плинтус прикладывается к предполагаемому месту установки, все отклонения размеров и неточности заметны и сразу учитываются.
Cutting the angle
First you need to take a pair of workpieces, then cut them at right angles. Resting the end of the plank to the perpendicular wall, we apply one bar. We outline a fishing line for a trimmer along the contour of the skirting board on the ceiling. Remove the first bar, then also, resting the end of the end against the wall, we attach the bar of the response. In the same way, we mark the circuit for a trimmer along the contour.
The intersection point of two separate lines is a mark on which the workpiece is cut. Each bar is attached to the surface again, on both the point of the future cut is marked. From the found point to the other edge of the plinth plank, we draw a fishing line for a trimmer. We cut the skirting boards according to the previously made outlines, carefully dock, place in the place of their installation.
This method allows you to more carefully process the internal angles.
How to make a template jarked with your own hands
If you do not have a point, it is not necessary to buy a tool for one.time use. A template with similar functions can be done independently.
To do this, the desired angles of the cut are applied to wood, paper or cardboard.
Then you need to draw a couple of parallel lines, find the center, after which to measure the corners of any given size using the transporter.
This method is especially convenient in that, using it, you can postpone an angle of any size, even more than a direct.
The methodology for processing a skirting workpiece using a home.made tool is practically no different from working with the original. The bar is pressed to one of the parallels, after which the hacksaw is installed at the required angle, and cut off.
Remember that before cutting the corners of the workpiece, you must definitely check the angle between the walls! To do this, use the transporter and corner.
How to cut the ceiling plinth correctly. Important little things
Measurements necessary for pruning the baseboard on the ceiling should be done in a special way. To determine and mark the inner angle, the length should be measured from the corner. For the mark of the outer angle, it is necessarily taken into account that in deeper the room the skirting board will protrude at a distance that equals its width.
It is not advisable to fix the planks of skirting boards before the moment when their exact location is tried on and the response skirting is cut off. Only after the ideal converging in the corner of both response planks can they begin to install them and fasten. If the work is carried out with polyurethane or wooden skirting boards, defects and flaws can be fixed with a file or file. To adjust the product from foam, you should arm yourself with a sharp knife.
If even after finalizing the skirting boards there remains at least a small gap, do not rush to be upset. it is easy to close up with ordinary putty. Cutting accurately and neatly ceiling skirting boards is not so difficult. But to purchase at least a small skill, first try to practice on small blanks.
