This I can answer, lol. Instead of two 45* ends meeting together, one piece is cut square ended to butt to the corner of the space and the other is cut to the curves or shape of the other piece so it overlaps the other w/o gaps. Make sense?
Once I trace the curves from the molding onto the other piece it's meeting, I use a coping saw and an electric sander to remove the mat'l I don't need. I've only done this on base molding so far with great results.
