How do you cut crown molding on a horizontal wall going to a slopped ceiling and at the peak of a slopped ceiling. Also a wall at a 45 with the wall and slopped ceiling.
You then can't do Crown Molding. Pack up your tools and move on to something else.
Great little tutorial for working with Crown Molding. "bottom up and measure the angle. Thanks Fred
What if you are left handed?
Thank Ron, I have used a copeing saw. I find it easy to do.
Hi, I'm Ron. And I don't read or respond to anything anyone writes. Please buy stuff I promote. Have a nice life.
If you think Martha`s story is really cool,, in the last month my mum also got paid $5198 working at home and they're co-worker's step-sister`s neighbour did this for 9-months and earned over $5198 part time On their laptop. follow the guide from this address... jump15.comCHECK IT OUT
was it an illusion? I don't think you did bevel cut. if you added the bevel cut, your jig wouldn't have worked
great video but my question is do you always transfer your measurement either inside or outside corner to the bottom edge of the molding?
The jig he makes is all important however. At the very least draw a pencil line on the fence so you always hold the crown in the same place while cutting.
Cope cope cope, yes it is better and once you understand how to do it it's easier. If you use a jig saw, which does take a little practice to get good at, it's faster as well. Mitering inside corners is for beginners and people who don't take trimming seriously.
I have always coped crown mldg. and hated every minute of it, but I sure will try your way of doing it. also I love that tool to get the exact measurement of the corners. I have one on order.I am redoing an entire house and want to put crown in every room. I think I am looking forward to cutting it this time..Thanks,I will let everyone know how it turned out.
Ron's videos are always informative and well done, but this one is exceptional. Labeling the moldings as he cuts made a difficult job much easier. Thanks, Ron
To those with vaulted ceilings, I found the easiest way was to make a joint from scrap wood and keep playing with it until it is right. I questioned Ron once before on this since he makes it look so easy, never did hear back.
Love the idea but I am not the biggest fan of crown mouldings. I will consider making the jig.
I am planning to have a new house built for my retirement. I will not be able to oversee the construction but will make trips for the major stuff. I certainly hope they will do a good job. My big fear is it will not be completely square.
Hi, Ron,What do you do about the gaps between the molding and the uneven walls? Even my relatively new home doesn't have true flush walls.
I see several comments regarding coped inside corners. Doesn't a coped joint handle variations in moisture and temperature better than a mitered joint? Isn't this, in fact, the reason that coped joints have been the standard and are still popular in absolutely top grade work?
great web site Ron you have saved me hundreds in man hours and dollars,at the same time showing how to do it right the first time with the right knowledge. thank you so much.
