add bottom plinth to existing door casing?
I want to add shoe mold to my baseboard, but that would mean the shoe mold would not meet the door casings evenly (it would sit 'proud' of the casing). I know that one solution to that is to cut the shoe mold at 45-degrees at end to soften its meeting with the casing - but I don't like that look. Prefer to find a way to build out the casing so that shoe mold hits it flush. If this were new construction I'd install a plinth at the bottom of the casing which would receive the shoe mold nicely. Question: is there a way to install a bottom plinth to the existing casing without removing the casing (too many doors to think of removing all that trim!). Could I carefully cut out the bottom section of the casing with a really fine saw (like a Japanese saw)and then install the plinth? Anyone out there have any experience with this? I appreciate any and all advice!
