Ensure a Tight Fit

How to ensure a tight fit Install door and window casings and other vertical trim before you fit horizontal elements, such as baseboards and chair rails. Mark and cut these pieces about 1/16 inch longer than the space. If you're butting against a piece of casing, make sure it's well-secured so it won't move when you press against it. Install the horizontal pieces by bowing it into position, as shown in Figure 4. This will give you a tight fit at each end.
