Cutting & Fitting Coving Corner Mitre Angles

Cutting and fitting mitred corners Cutting the mitre angles of the corners of coving cornice and fitting House Martin coving cornice lengths needs only diy skills. This voids the need for problematic readymade coving cornice mitred corners, which are expensive and rely on perfectly square walls.

The problem with fitting factory produced coving cornice mitred corners is that there is an assumption that of the wall corners are a perfect square. When, as is often the case they are not, the corner ends will rock and a poor coving cornice joint will result.

Additionally when cutting corner coving cornice mitres, it is easier when fitting to hide imperfectly cut internal mitre corners than it is poorly cut straight butt joints. Most coving cornice mitred corners are internal. Factory cut butt joints enable much cleaner coving cornice fitting along the length of the wall than hand cutting the joint enables.

A good mitre box and stiff blade small tooth saw will improve the cutting and fitting of the coving cornice corner mitred angles, both internal and external. You may want to practice the cutting of mitre corners and angles on a few waste pieces or spare wood. Measure your coving cornice into the corner for fitting. Hold the coving cornice length steady when cutting the coving cornice corner angles and ideally use a mitre box with retaining lugs such as our FB13 mitre box. For larger coving cornice mitre corners use our FB300 mitre box or block.

All deliveries come with an instruction sheet showing how to mark out the angle of the mitre and fitting coving cornice corners and ends.

So when fitting coving cornice; cutting the mitre angles is made easier with the correct tools and instructions, and in our view a better solution than cutting along the length and using factory made mitred corners.
