Kraftmaid Starter Moulding


Hello everyone, about a month ago i was helping a friend out with his tile floor in his kitchen now he wants my help with his new Kraftmaid kitchen cabinets. There is a piece of wood in the box called a "starter moulding." its about 3"x6"x8' in the shape of an "L." Does anyone know exactly how to install this moulding? I'm pretty sure it goes on top of the upper cabinets behind the crown moulding, but not 100% positive. Any help would be really appreciative.
Thanks

Sounds like a crown backer. It installs on top of the cabinets, I would install it flush with the door fronts not the cabinet box. I havent seen it that big, most of the time its 1-1/2" x 3" L and you would also use it for light valance under the upper cabinets.

We have the light valance already. I just wanted to make sure that the starter is for the top. How would we install that? Do we put it on before or after the cabinet is up?
Thanks

I would put the cabinets up and use 1-1/4" screws to either screw it down thru the top(if you have enough room), or thru the inside of the cabinets up into the backer.
