How to correctly install base moulding?

18 years ago

Can someone explain the proper way to intall base molding? I have been experimenting in some hidden areas before I do the real stuff. It did not turn out very well. I have been cutting the inside corners at 45 degree angle and shimming the molding to get a tight miter. Once I start to install a nail near the miter the miters seperate and I have a gap. I have looked at other base molding it it was installed different and looks good. So whats the trick?
