Concave ? Two likely suspects---the wood moved as you cut it--or the blade deflected--to end the deflection---cut the piece a tiny but long--adjust the board and make the final cut---

third possibility? Sloppy saw----check for head movement---

Are you cutting the ceiling mold like you have it setting on the saw? If so, you have it on the saw backwards.

If you were to take a piece and place it on the ceiling correctly then take that piece down and place it on your miter saw upside down (not backwards) from the way is was on the ceiling and bedded into the saw, that would be the correct way to cut it. When I say bed it into the saw, see the flats that touch the wall and the flat that touches the ceiling, make sure they are making complete contact as if on the ceiling except upside down. You cut ceiling mold upside down and backwards.

Here is a picture of ceiling mold bedded in the miter saw I found on the web. Notice that the molding is upside down on the saw, that is the correct way to cut the molding.

ok. i installed much of it today. i didn't use a jig, nor the angle gauge. and the saw was working correctly today. i miss cut 2 pieces, not paying enough attention . but otherwise the cuts came out well enough.
what i did have a very hard time with = getting them mounted correctly. just a little off would be noticable. i needed 3-4 hands, and i only have 2. so i just fought with it the best i knew how.
it turned out pretty good, not great, but pretty good.

see my sample backsplash tiles. i have yet to find anything that i like. but the wife LOVES the glass mosaics . i think they are too busy.

yeah, it does. i am suprised at just how much it "add's" to the room. the room seemed kinda naked before. and i still have another bank of cabinets to do. plus the over fridge cabinet.
