    Default Curved baseboard

    I'm replacing the baseboard on a outside curved wall in my bedroom but failed. I'm using MDF trim 3/4 thick & 3-7/8 H. The arc of the curve is about 10 ft wide (about 1/4 of a circle). what is the best way to put on the MDF baseboard!

    Chances are that the mdf molding will not handle that much of a curve without breaking. If your baseboard is of common design, you might want to look into flexible molding. Check out the website http://flexibletrim.com/ to see if they offer a profile which matches what you currently have.

    Good luck.

    You might need to make a series of kerfs ( relief cuts) in the back of the baseboard to allow the pieces to bend.
    I've never tried it with MDF but it should work.

    I would go with the flexible trim, the surface of MDF is very brittle and I'm afraid even with kerf cuts on the back the surface would still break or crack.
