160 Degree Crown Moulding Install


What would the bevel angle and miter angle be for this? The angle that you see in the picture is 160 degrees.

you will probably only be taking out a few degrees per piece to make that angle or try and take it all out of the left pitch angle and see if the profiles still line up, if not then take a little out of the right piece to compensate until the profiles match... a few pieces of scrap crown will help to get the fit.

160 Degree Crown Moulding Install


you would make a 10 degree cut on each piece.

use some scraps for test pieces and cut like normal for crown.

how have you been cutting the crown so far?

flat in the chop saw or upside down?
for the test pieces try laying flat and cutting a 10 degree miter

yea cutting that transition piece might take a few tries. one side has to be cut like cutting upside down and the other side has to be a regular flat miter so it ends up being a little sliver.

For some reason I though it would be more complicated and there might need to be some cuts with a coping saw involved. I have a power miter saw to make the angled cuts. Thanks for the replies everyone. I will post another picture or two soon just to make sure I'm on the right track with the other corners.

Here's some corners that I think might be more tricky.
