Perfect Cut Crown


What size is it?
What style of wood? or MDF? Veneered? Paint grade?
What spring angle?
Do you plan on coping the corners?
Do you have a compound mitre saw?

Ever done Crown before? Upside down and backwards works for me.

Perfect Cut Crown


I assume that is a brand name???? I have never paid attention to brand names on trim, so not sure what the difference is.

Perfect Cut Crown


Hey Lousy Carpenter,
I am Gregg from the Home Depot in Chicago. Basically the type of crown moulding you have has the design of the profile on both the front and back side, which makes it super easy to cut the angles with just a miter saw. Now all we need is for the trim to hang itself on the wall. I have done demonstrations of this product since it was introduced and I really like it. There is still a lot of skill involved in the install, such as, measuring, adjusting the angles to make a perfect fit, and accounting for unlevel ceilings, but the perfect cut really helps the process especially if it is your first time installing crown. Here are the instruction for the Perfect Crownhttp://www.homedepot.com/hdus/en_US/...rPad2-5-10.pdf . Hope the install goes well, if you have more questions about crown moulding let us know. –Gregg
