1/4 round molding


I'm installing 1/4 round to trim cathedral ceiling, roof pitch is either 5/12 or 7/12. I'm having difficulty finding the right angle. I have a compound miter saw and don't know what miter and bevel to use. Ceiling height at wall in center is 11' 5" and outside wall height is 8" 1 1/2 " Can anyone help?

You could use one of those angle tools to find the angle and then match it up on your miter saw.

http://www.compoundmiter.com/tool_uses.html not exactly what I have, but you get the idea.

yes a bevel guide is best as it will measure actual...

We need a horizontal measurement to go with the vertical to calculate an angle... or pitch.
