A dremel tool with a small sanding drum or other small tool works well for the fine tuning of the cut.

I have coped mdf and wood baseboards and quarter round.

I find it easier, before I cut the profile, to blacken the edge with a pencil so it is easier to see a) where to cut and b) where to file/sand in order to fine-tune the profile.

Coping is a little more difficult than presented. After several tries, I was able to come close, however as I buit the cabinets and installed then myself, I was able to obtain a perfect 90 degree angle (Project was to install crown molding on the face frame at the top) I tried my luck with the 45 degree cut and was pleased with the result. Crown on the ceiling probably would have required the coping method.

Is it possible to cope fiberboard trim as opposed to wood trim?
