Unhappy Coping a Plinth Block?

Measure twice and cut once...but in my case I forgot. I am installing door molding using mdf plinth blocks, casing, and rossettes. It looks great but I have two doors that are placed very close to one another on an inside corner. I need to cope the final remaining plinth bock, of course, but have never done this. I imagine it is the same as any other inside cope but wanted to throw it out for comment. Also, I've never coped an mdf product and would like some tips to help out.

Thanks in advance.

Use a table saw for the back cut...a fine coping saw blade that cuts on the down stroke. And of corse you know this...measure the angle and devide by two for the back cut. sorry! Good luck.... the painter is not going to like you! Rick

Never... I mean always... never mind Rick
