I guess I'm glad I do not know much about math! BUT I cut those inside corners you see in the pic by cutting with my saw set at 22.5 you can see the top of the corner the cut angle are less than 90 less than 45 they are 22.5

but yes you are right these actual inside corner angles are larger than 90 as you label them so they must be 135 degrees

I do not understand why this works but it does. if you have a LARGER corner angle you set your miter saw for a SMALLER angle

Petros, there are different methods to installing crown and while a 45 can be used at every cut on the cabinets with the 45 center cabinet it is best that you continue the way you are going.

ok thanks- I will keep up with the method I am using and after I'm done I'll research to find out how the 45 thing works. but for now at least the stuff is going up!

I just made a JIG for my little miter saw and I JUST realized that depending on how the jig sets the crown on the bed of the saw it will change the spring angle that the molding need to sit at. So I just got it set right so the molding is sitting at the proper angle on the saw bed. I was holding is there by hand and no wonder I had some gaps!@!@!@!

This is pretty cool, I think I will get this finished by tomorrow. I am going to try coping.

thanks !!!

aha moment, got it, the top of the crown.
Which makes sense the larger the inside cabinet angle the smaller the crown angle.

Thanks....starting stuff this weekend....pulling down old crown from a room that is being renovated....will look at those cuts and use those pieces for testing.

If you cut two short pieces of moulding at 90* and place one on each side of the corner cabinets, you will see why that has to be CUT at 22.5* not matter if the actual angle of the cabinet is greater than 90*. It makes each side of the angle 67.5* which adds up to 135
