5/4 jamb stock as backing for crown moulding
Gary Katz mentions in a DVD using finger joint 5/4 jamb stock as a backer for crown moulding but says nothing more about how it is used. I understand you can make triangular blocks or rip studs to give them a triangular dimension, but 1x? What is he talking about?
I can see ripping a board. Say a 5/4x5 at 2" and nailing the 3" half to the ceiling and the 2" to the wall or whatever fits the size and spring angle. Is that what he is talking about?
Talking about backer board, does the material make much difference? Is pine to soft?
A blocker is placed on the wall so give move nailing material for the crown. Nothing more than that. Pine works fine.
I am nailing the 5 1/4 crown in this room with individual blocks, but plan on doing the rest of a 2400 sq ft house with continuous backers.
