Old House Journal - - Restore -

A quick sum­mary: Cut the first piece at a 90° an­gle, butt it into the cor­ner, and nail. For the piece that will be coped, use a board longer than needed, since you will cut it to length af­ter mak­ing the joint. Cut the sec­ond piece (us­ing a miter saw or miter box and hand saw) at a 45° bevel, with the back side longer than the face. Af­ter you cut away the back por­tion us­ing a cop­ing saw with a fine-tooth blade, this pro­file will fol­low the con­tours of the piece al­ready on the wall.
