How to Cut an External Mitre - VIDEO

A video that shows you how to cut a external mitre (for a corner that projects into a room) without using a mitre box:


  • Make sure you know which edge of the plaster coving is the ceiling edge, and which edge is the wall edge
  • An external mitre means that you need to 'add on' to the top edge
  • Make sure you make the 'wall mark' and then square it up along the bottom edge
  • Add the top edge mark of the cornice using the projection measurement
  • The cut in the plaster coving will go from the bottom edge to the top edge
  • Enlist the help of a spare pair of hands to hold the coving at the correct projection depth
  • Cut using a saw to achieve the correct 45 degree mitre
  • Repeat the process for the other end of the coving.

This is our smallest design in this style and as can be seen from the video it has an unmistakable period style. There are no external angles in the video - however if you look at the video for LPC017 you will be able to see these angles which show the true elegance of this design.
