Fitting moldings tightly into an inside corner can be difficult if splinters, old nails, blobs of glue or other obstructions happen to be present at the joint.

This is especially true with quarter-round and similar moldings that are designed to fit snugly against two mating surfaces.

To avoid these problems, hand plane a small flat onto the back side of your molding. This flat will often provide just the right amount of relief for the molding to slip tightly into position without interference from these small obstructions.
