Crown Molding


I'm sure this has been asked many times, so please excuse me if this is a very old subject. I'm new to this forum.

I am installing crown molding. I know that the proper setting for my rip saw for a 90 degree angle is Miter 31.62 degrees and bevel 33.85 degrees for the molding i am using. What is the proper setting for 45 degrees? Is it 1/2 of 31.62/33.85 degrees? That seems almost too simple.

Thanks

Joe

Crown Molding


First off, why are you using a rip saw on your crown?

Crown Molding


I may be using an incorrect term. I plan on using a double bevel compound miter saw.

From what i have seen it may be best just to use a crown molding stop on the base and forget about cutting it lying flat on the base of the saw.

Thanks,

Joe

Just messin' with ya, Joe. Yes, you're right about not having to bother with the compound bevels in the "flat" method. Few pros do anything but the "bedded", upsidedown and backward method. (The way you described it with the base stop)
