Question by  mssix (18)

Is it difficult to install crown molding on cabinets?

I'd like to try to do it myself.


Answer by  martine (860)

I suggest asking a friend for help that may know what they are doing. Get some home improvement books to learn how as well.

Its not easy, but you dont have to be a rocket scientist to figure it out. Most stores that supply the materials can give you pointers to make it work.

It should be a fairly easy job as long as you have a good miter box and understand how to use it to cut angles on corners.

Not if you know what your doing, go to a hardware store that gives classes on how too, then installing crown molding will be easy.


Answer by  CarolynOsborne (2804)

The hard part of installing crown molding is to learn how to cut it accurately at the corners. You would want to look on the internet for detailed information about this part of the process. Cutting crown molding on a compound miter saw is non-intuitive and it's easy to mess up expensive molding. Buy some cheap molding to practice with.

It is fairly simple as long as you have a steady hand and you make sure everything is ready before you start the job. You just want to make sure everything is handy.
