Oh.....and I have some ocean front property for sale in NM.

Anyone who says that don't have issues.....well, has never done in crown molding.

It's a lot easier if your going to paint it....that is what calk is for.....but stained? Yep...buy extra.

Slaughter...nice job....but only one comment....and maybe it's a personal preference....I would have finished the ceiling and walls first...and then put up the molding.
Exactly crown molding is the most dificult trim to install other than rope molding in my opinion. Paint grade, not too bad but your joints should still be fairly tight. Stain grade crown is very difficult, your joints need to be prefect every time and you need to know all the tricks to get your joints tight.
With this said, I had the pleasure about 3 years ago of installing walnut stain grade 7'' crown in an 80' dome. I can honestly say I learned alot of tricks on that job. Every 6'' we had to cut relief cuts in the back of the crown in order to bend it around the dome.

my trickiest crown job was a kitchen remodel where all the cabinet/shelves went up to a vaulted ceiling and we had to cut stain grade crown tight to ceiling and wrap top of cabinets. what a way to learn the importance of a micro cut

I have to say every answer here is a bit complicated, our way is much more simple! Sorry Oh'Mike, our favorite moderator, we don't want to cross any lines, but comparatively for a beginner, this is his answer! http://youtu.be/u0qCvMdAqSQ
