How do you cut crown molding?


Answer by  Jakecutter (1819)

Very carefully. First you use a miter saw. You have to be sure to have every angle tapered off in pencil or marker so you don't over cut your length. You place the widest angle of the molding away from you, hanging out of the miter box and you gently ease into the wood with your saw.

It is best to put crown moldings or any other type of molding into a miter box and use a hack saw to cut it to length. Make sure to keep the edges clean after cutting by using a file or sanding tool to get any ridges off of the new cut pieces.

You should cut crown molding on a miter saw. To get the correct angle place the widest outside edge standing upright, facing to the back in the saw. On a standard corner cut two 45 degree angles to get the correct angle.

Crown Molding is very triky to cut. The best way to go about cutting it is to cut the pieces with the mindset of "upside down and backwards." If you use this mindset, then you should be successful.
