> Mitre Cuts and Crown Molding by Handyman on 05/19/2005

Orientation is important. It is important that the profile be
cutin the proper 45 degree orientation. Flip the trim with the top
resting on the bed of the miter saw and the bottom facing upward and
against the fence. Cut a 45 degree angle to the
left of the 0 mark on the saw. The top of the molding should
have a strait cut. Cope inward close to the profile
and finely sand and true up with a round file.
Flip the moulding over and the trim should butt up
against the square cut end of the mating piece. This method assume that
all inside corners have one coped piece mating agains a piece that
is cut square at the end.
