    Default trimming a baseboard

    i would like to know an easy way to trim the end of a baseboard without damaging the wall or removing the baseboard entirely. i am wanting to install some casing trim around an interior opening and the baseboard needs to be shortened by the width of the casing......thanks for any replies.

    A keyhole saw would probably work best.

    I would use an oscillating tool like the Dremel MultiMax (about $99 at Home Depot of Lowe's) or the Rockwell Soniccrafter (about $130) or the Fein MultiMaster (about $300)

    Pull saws are great for what you want to do. I would suggest you tape a really thin pcs of cardboard,paper or plastic against the wall to run the saw down. At times I will put a pcs of masking tape on the exposed side of the wood to eliminate any ripping when pulling the saw towards you.
    Take it slow when cutting with any saw...

    Cut it 3 times & it's still to short.
