Trick to Cut Crown Molding on Angle

By: Joe Truini

In order to properly make miter cuts in crown molding you have to turn it upside down on the miter saw table. This allows the angled back edges to rest against the fence and the table during cutting.

olding the molding in exactly the right position while you make a cut is the difficult part.

The solution is to hot glue a piece of one-by-two to the saw table so it acts as a cleat to hold the molding in the proper position.

    Guys and gals…I watch your program each Saturday morning @6AM on WJBF Augusta, GA. I have learned a lot. Looking forward to taking on some repairs now that I have retired. Have a 18×18 section of sheetrock that was removed for plumber to install new tub/sbower hardware. I’ll check website to see if there is a video that would help. Have a great day.
