CUTTING CROWN MOLDING
This is one of the tedious steps in crown molding. To do it perfectly, follow the steps below: 1. Start with one section. In the first corner, note the wall which intersects the corner along the molding bottom and draw a line. For alignment keep a small piece of molding in the corner. Draw around it and keep repeating the process until the lines in each wall connect.
INSTALLING CROWN MOLDING
Step 1: Decide which type of crown molding you are going to use. You can go with wood or MDF. While wood is a good choice, it can be expensive too. MDF should not be used in the kitchen or bathroom. Step 2: Next step is the hardest part of the whole process which is to cut the corners of the molding. For this use a coping saw which will make the cut easily and in the right angle. This is because it is much tighter than a mitered joint. In case there is any gap in the end, caulk can be used to conceal the gap. A power miter saw can also be used instead. Step 3: Measure the wall and mark the bottom of the molding. Step 4: Once the length is identified then cut the molding in a 90-degree angle. Step 5: the next piece should be cut at the 45-degree angle. To get a straight cut press the edges against the saw table firmly and vertical side fence.
