I didn't nail down the baseboard until after we finished the painted and got it like we wanted it.
The baseboard was pretty easy. With the compound miter saw, it was just a question of measuring correctly.
We did as much as we could on one side of the room and got it down before. We had some more time but we were pretty tired and with the measuring and cutting precision became more of an issue the later it got.
I quickly confused myself on a couple of cuts with the crown molding. The back of the crown molding had two flat sides at an angle and if I did not put the correct flat side snug up against the alignment cutting edge on the saw -- it didn't fit. I tried to figure it out just to 'get a little more done today' and it became counter productive. So we decided to call it a day and clean up.
The answer? This turned out to be the answer:
At $2.58 a tube, it worked like a champ! We had to brace the crown molding using some extra pieces we had laying around.
