Major rule in cutting wood. Measure “twice,” but cut “once.”
Suggestion by Mark C
I cut the inside angle first, then trace a line with a pencil on the edge I want to save, so I can see where not to cut. Using a coping saw I cut away any wood that is in the way and a little more at an angle to leave a point.
There is an excellent article in Fine Homebuilding this month, and yes it takes practice.

Miter the cut first. Then use the edge of the sawn line as your guide line for the cope cut. Back cut it a few degrees so the front edge is sure to touch first.

get a scrap piece of molding and wrap a piece of sandpaper around it. use it to fine tune your coping. and yes it does take practice.
how to cut solid wood without using saw?

You have to have some kind of saw. It doesn’t have to be a power saw but if it’s not it’s going to take longer. No way to get around that.

If you are REALLY desperate you could use a drill if you have one… Although I would recommend just getting the right tool for the job.. You could also use a handsaw. But that is going to take a long time as well.
