Crown Molding


Can someone tell me how you finish crown molding when it stops on a outside corner like in a basement at a window or when I hit the stairwell heading up the stairs. If you have any pictures or links to pictures it would be greatly appreciated. I've searched but I'm coming up empty.

Crown Molding


You would miter it, and create a self-return.

There are pictures of Crown Molding self-returns on this site link (FWIW: This is a very good site for instructions regarding crown molding installation):
