Posted by Irene 01/27/02 at10:37:38 When you are cutting cove around objects you need to treat it like crown. This means you will have to make some of your cuts "upside-down".If the cove has the same profile top and bottom,(looks the same any way it sits.)it can get confusing which is top or bottom so put a small mark on the edge that will end up as bottom.It can get confusing if you don't pay attention. If you are using hardwood, buy a piece of cheaper materal with a similar profile to practice on first.Even the Pros get lost when they have to start flipping trim end-for-end,topside down.Practice...Practice,experiment...experiment,but on cheaper stock.
