Crown Molding Cutting Video
Installing crown molding is a pretty tough job. One of the hardest jobs is getting the crown molding cut so that the miter joints are tight. Here is a neat trick that will save you time.
Cut two little test miters from some scrap crown molding. Cut them at a precise 45 degree angle. Slide these two pieces in the corner and see how they match. If they meet with no gap, you have a perfect 90 degree corner. If there is a gap, you will have to adjust your cut. A few test cuts will help you figure out the proper angle to cut the molding.
Using scrap lumber and sample cuts, will help your crown molding installation go smoothly.
