In reply to installing crown moulding by jr on March 1st, 1998 03:01 PM [Go to top of thread]

I assume when you say "cut the ends" you mean
miter. If so, don't. When installing crown
molding you should cope rather than miter. The
concept of coping is rather difficult to explain
in words - try going to a library to research
the subject or find a friend to show you. Basically,
what you do is create a profile of the moldingby
cutting a miter; the profile is then cut away with
a coping saw (coping) and fitted to the adjacent
piece. Outside corners are mitered.
