Crown miters
 
alright trying to do corners on crown with a compund miter saw... the darn book I have says 45 and 45 degrees... that cant be right... because when I did it with a normal miter saw and had the crown at an angle against the fence it was a much smaller piece and the angle was right .... what is the correct way to do crown on a compound miter saw?

Although my technique is slightly different, Gary’s links nail the concept to “Goof Proof Crown” (I stole that term).

That's what I did in the past but realized I had a compound miter saw (not idea how I never noticed that before......) anyways... thought it would be easier with the compound miter... but seems like its worse...

you use the compound only when the moulding is layed flat on the miter box

yes that is what I was doing with the compound miter, I only had it upright when it was a normal miter... but when it was flat it seemed like I needed angles like 31 degrees to get the same cut that I got with the normal 45 degree upright upside down cut

Use the ole tried and true method described above. I have a compound miter saw myself and have very rarely used the second angle. Just too easy to do crown the other way.
