How to cut bullnose corner crown molding using compound miter saw
I'm trying to cut the crown molding to fit around a bullnose. I've been using the book by Wayne Drake. I get the small v-looking piece I cut for the middle around the bullnose, but how do I cut the two pieces adjacent to the center piece on either side (outside left/outside right)? What angle am I supposed to use? and do I keep the blade tilt the same? Is there a total angle I'm trying to obtain from all 4 cuts? I imagine it's 90 degrees, since this is the measure of the outside corner (270). The book doesn't explain this part well. Any ideas?

Not entirely sure what you are trying to do. Crown molding is best done by coping inside corners, and experimental miter of outside corners. No wall is straight and no angle is 90 deg. That is the main rule for installing trim. If there is something you have to trim around, coping is usually the best way, but it takes practice, and often try/fit experimenting.

Bullnose Corner
If its 270 all four cuts will be 22.5.

A picture of what your trying to work around would be great.

big boy is right if holding trim up the way it goes on the wall.
try a crown molding cutting jig
milescraft, kreg,or bench dog

are you talking about a outside corner that has bullnose corner bead. if thats the case depending on the radius of hte corner bead it may need to be done as a 3 pc assembly or a 4pc.. in order to make the turn around the corner

this is the theory.. if your using whats called sprung crown the only difference is how you hold hte crown at the saw.. hes using hot melt glue because hes using foam crown. if your using wood use wood glue
