That one is a little like the one Joe has. There is nothing wrong with using a jig like that, if it makes the job easier for a person, that is what they should do. As many thousand feet of ceiling mold I ran, I would get mixed up when I had my mind somewhere other than on cutting the molding.

One place that always drove me nuts was when putting 1/4 round, not shoe mold, on the ceiling on a porch, for some reason I would make a lot of the cuts wrong, there was no up or down place, it was all the same not like ceiling mold, which usually one side is thick and the other thin. LOL

One thing I did when running ceiling mold, and I didn't have a cut man, is make the measurements, cut the pieces and glue and pin them together on a table I made out of 3/4 plywood on a set of horses, it sure saved a lot of climbing up and down a ladder.

Something that has helped me with crown is take 2 small pieces mitered for the inside corner and tack then together. Make this a perfect fit for the corner hold it up in the corner and take a pencil and mark the bottom use this on all 4 corners using the same pieces. then snap a line between the marks. This will show all the way around where the bottom of the crown should be. This way you don't have to worry about your piece twisting

I go half way each time as opposed to popping the line across the entire room. this helps if the middle is high or low and keeps the crown the same distance from ceiling everywhere. mostly though I just measure down a few spots and make a tiny hash mark to follow. chalk lines can drop to much chalk in finished houses.

the other issue with chalking a line from corner to corner is if the ceiling isnt perfectly flat it can cause your pieces to sit down too lown and you will have a wicked twist in it for it to meet the ceiling or a nasty gap.. for this reason i prefer cutting blocks that match where the crown will lie on the wall and ceiling. ive had far greater success with this method

If you have a sag in the ceiling, popping a line and keeping the bottom of the trim on that line and roll the top out will make the ceiling look straight. It is easier to see a sag than to see the twist in the ceiling mold. I know that it is sad that some new construction is like that but it is. I wanted my trim to look good so that is the decision I made so it would. And yes I had to plane some of the back off at the top for a close fit. I hated doing that but that is the way it was.
