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...

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.
