What's the best way to intersect 2 marble pencil mouldings?

13 years ago

I've got a shower with field tile of 12x23 Porcelanosa rectified layed in a running bond. About 1/2 way up is a marble horizontal pencil (11 7/8" long x 1/2" or 3/4" wide, x probably 3/4" to 1" thick). Then a course of 6 mini-bricks, another course of pencil, then a continuation of the field tile up to the ceiling. The bullnose for the Porcelanosa was an arm and a leg (~$50 per piece), so I nixed that and will be using the same marble pencil as a bullnose.

I need to know the best way to join those perpendicular pencils...think of the pencils as making a letter T. About the only thing I've come up with is either cutting a notch in the vertical pieces and a "point" on the horizontals and join them (think a male/female connection...sorry it was all I could think of). Or somehow coping the horizontal and blending it together.

Just butting up a squared off end to a rounded pencil seems like it wouldn't look very good...but I may be overthinking this...AGAIN!
