In reply to how to cut crown moulding by david barnes on February 21st, 1999 07:32 PM [Go to top of thread]

Most crown moulding has a top rear angle of 52 degrees and a bottom rear angle of 38 degrees which added together equals 90 degrees. The easiest way for most people to cut it is flat on the miter saw table. The correct settings are as follows:

Bevel Angle setting = 33.85 degrees for all cuts(already marked on many miter saws)

Follow the settings below for each corner.
(Some saws have an indent for 31.62 degrees, try just past 30 degrees to see if yours has it)

Left side, inside corner - top edge against fence, miter table set right 31.62 degrees

Right side, inside corner - bottom edge against fence, mitre table set left 31.62 degrees

Left side, outside corner - bottom edge against fence, miter table set left 31.62 degrees

Righ side, outside corner - top edge against fence, miter table set right 31.62 degrees
