I put a piece of carpet on my side porch, if it is big enough to qualify as a porch, its 4’ x 4’. I am putting quarter round on 3 sides . I want to cut it in instead just putting down with out joining it

Miter one corner at 45. Use your coping saw to saw along the cut line and angle the saw to give it about 5 degrees of back rake. Leave the end of the adjoining piece square. Use a small rasp to fine tune the fit if necessary.

That’s covered in the second video I posted. If he watched that video he should be good to go.

I normally cope baseboard and crown in the same way. That is getting to be a rare practice, even on expensive houses. It is faster to just miter the corners and apply a bunch of painter’s caulk to hide the lack of craftsmanship.

I have one of those sanding drums for my drill press that makes short music of that. Found that way the quickest when doing my wood floor and doing the quarter round on the base. Just cut the 45 and then sand it down to the cut line.

Sanding isn’t as fast as using a coping saw if you are good at it.

Plus my porch would be 80 feet from my drill press.
