Crown Molding question or trick?

Crown in the following:

Office (done)
Master Bedroom
Dining Room (done)
Hallway (next)

Someday, maybe in:
Sapre bedroom,
Living room

I say the hallway is next, however that needs to be painted first, and I need to buy more crown, so I will work on the window trim in the dining room next.

*Needs extensive remodel!

Crown Molding question or trick?

coping is the only way to go. I can't believe I'd tried it the other way

Crown Molding question or trick?

In most instances on inside corners, coping is best (just my opinion, of course).

Now I can understand someone just learning, and just going to put up crown in 1 room using inside miters. Much shorter learning curve for the uninitiated...and they would probably save a lot of material and some of their sanity at first.
