We could have used Chip Wade‘s help a few months ago when we put shoe and crown molding in our bathroom and hallway.   If adding molding is on your to-do list, here’s a quick video of some easy tricks and tips to make it easy.

Tackling America’s To-Do List: Installing Crown Molding

Tackling America’s To-Do List: Project Steps

Installing Shoe Molding – Living Room/ Bedroom

Tools Needed

  • Dremel 8200 Rotary Tool


  • 2500-01 Multi-Vise
  • 430 Sanding Drum
  • 407 Sanding Drum (optional)

Additional Materials

  • Wall adhesive
  • 2500-01 Multi-Vise or clamps
  • Pencil

Project Steps

  1. Mark the molding with how much material and at what angle you wish to remove in order to fit to room size.
  2. Using the 430 Sanding Drum, sand shoe molding to line. We recommend making multiple passes to achieve desired result instead of trying to remove all material in one hard sweep.
  3. Once the molding is trimmed to the desired length and angle, put in place. Repeat accordingly with remaining pieces of molding.
