Crown with Tray ceiling, Arghh.
 
Well the first couple of rooms went well but then again they were giant rectangles. Now Im tackling my dining room and it is driving me nuts.

The biggest issue I have is one corner where ceiling sloped down to both walls. So the ceiling slope is 33deg but where they meet is 24deg. How do I cut my left and right inside corners to mate up. I based it off the ceiling slope and it was close but not exact.

Any help will allow me to keep some hair.
thanks.

I'm confused. Is it a trey ceiling or a vaulted ceiling? If it is a trey ceiling the the ceiling and walls would meet at 90 degrees with the trey in the middle of the room. If the ceiling takes off from the wall and vaults upwards, then it's vaulted. The only way that I have seen crown placed in a room with a vaulted ceiling is by affixing the crown only to the walls leaving the upper part exposed. This looks nice and offers the some unique lighting opportunities.

Not sure what to exactly call it. Its a 10' ceiling that slopes down on two sides to 9'. Where the two side slope down they meet in one corner. Its the only one I cant get a handle on. So out of the room. One corner is a standard, two are where it slopes down, two need transition pieces and the last is the one that is driving me nuts.

Is that crown upside down?

I think a picture of the offending area would help a lot in this case.

I didn't do it, just a quick google pic.

Good point. Snapped a picture and here it is. Its a 90deg corner. I am following the beigher paint around but you can see(not the best pic) that the ceiling slopes in two directions and hits that corner. Maybe I do need some kind of transition but thought there would be a way around it.

Thanks for the help.

All I see is a tan line. :eek:

Just a guess: if you duplicate the angle on a piece of say 2x4 (cut it long like a wedge) of the wall with the sloped ceiling part where you want to put the trim and then lay that on your miter saw fence you would duplicate the scenario in the room. THen like cutting any crown (if I'm remembering this right), flip it upside down so it sits as you want it to in the room and cut your 45 deg angles. No idea if it will work but could try it on some scrap.

Im up for anything. Already wasted multiple feet as it is. Yeah the angles dont show up well but the tan is the wall. The line in the corner going up is where the two sloping parts intersect. Staring at it too long may cause seizures!

Do I need a transition? Everything Ive tried I always come up with a little wedge in the middle.

chuee 08-20-2010 04:08 PM

Any other ideas? Im at a lose here.

There’s definitely people here that can help you with crown.

I’m not seeing the question in the picture you posted. How about a stand back pic. Tack up a couple of pieces in this problem corner so we can see the problem.

My upside down pic. Shows how to get from an angle to level.

You have me confused.

chuee 08-22-2010 09:03 PM

Sorry. MIA due to putting crown in the master, painting and chair rail in the dining room and half bath. Ill tack some up tomorrow and post the picture. Trying to turn 90deg where two sloping ceiling meet. Better explained tomorrow. Thanks everyone.
