Molding - don't make it hard!

In reply to Crown moulding by Tom on December 21st, 1997 10:39 PM [Go to top of thread]

I peruse this site every couple of days and the
2 most asked questions are about the cutting
of crown molding and the second is removal of

I have installed miles of crown molding and if I
could give someone a few basic pointers, I
suggest the following:
1. Almost all cuts are 45 degrees (that is
of course exactly 1/2 of a 90 degree angle).
2. When cutting the molding, make sure that
the molding lays against the say as it will be
laying on the floor, wall or ceiling.
3. Keep your scraps of molding and when in
doubt, make a practice cut on a scrap.
4. Visualize the cut. I know this sounds kind
of corny, but when you are installing crown
molding in and around areas, you can just
simply get confused as to: "is this an inside
cut or an outside cut?". Is this going against
the wall or the ceiling.

I truly hope these few tips help you, and like I
said in the reply title....don't make it hard.
good luck
