Cutting bullnose crown molding...

Yesterday I took on the task of installing crown molding into my brothers home. Most of the corners are 90 degrees with the exception of 4; 3 bullnose and one 125 degree wall.

I started with cutting and installing most the 90 degree pieces yesterday. Today I will be finishing the rest of the house..

Here's my issue; Yesterday I tried making a few test cuts for the 22.5 degree outside bullnose but for some reason I can't figure it out. I've searched google and youtube and have found a couple videos/explanations however each video includes the use of a jig that the company is selling - I'm only using my trusty Hitachi C10FSH.

Does anyone have a link to instructions or video explaining how to cut an outside bullnose with a sliding compound miter like the C10FSH.

Thanks !

EDIT: For the sake of argument - Lets say his bullnose corners are exactly 90 degrees so we'll use 22.5 degrees

Jaysen see if this helps:



And Finally from the Crown Molding King Gary Katz:
Scroll down to "Conquering Crown Molding"

The secret is after cutting the pieces is to pre-assemble the corners with a super fast adhesive. Pro's use 2P-10:

If you wait 5 minutes or so you can use a slower setting adhesive. I Like:
Loctite "Power Grab" also available at LOWE'S or in 300mL gunable tubes

Another fast setting Wood Molding glue that I like is:
This is much faster setting than Titebond I, II, or III

Hope this helps


& Stay Safe
