How can I make my baseboards look, well, not so rounded. They arent round. They just look it. I am using lambert. Is there a better texture???

you might want to consider breaking the railing open at the ladder - a bit hard to get in without climbing over.

and the render looks fine, even with jpeg from maya. just keep in mind that it is still wip, and not a final render

Yes. Thanks for that idea. I will try breaking the railing at the ladder, but I was making it based on my little brother's bed, on which the railing is not broken open. Yes, it is very hard to get out of.

hmmmmmm.........It is a little harder than I thought to break that railing. I tried, but it was a flop. Maybe later I will take my time and get it done, but for now I think ill leave it

nice lighting

are the railings NURBS? You can use the trim tool to get rid of the area you don't want, then put a cap of some sort over the ends with Surfaces>Planar or intersect a plane perpendicular to the rail and trim away the parts that you don't need.
