Kitchen cabinet conundrum


That really is one of the best ways to terminate the crown; it is fairly easy to do as well. My only other thought would be to push the taller cabinet forward off the wall so you can end the crown into the side of it.

Kitchen cabinet conundrum


Dan,
Hi, and thank you for the response.
This will be hard to explain but I will try. The look I was hoping for, would be to cut the horizontal Crown on each side of the raised cabinet flush with the edge of the raised cabinet. However, I do not know how to do the return piece.
The end result would be the horizontal crown on the picture I added yesterday would end flush with the raised cabinet, not in the middle of the door.
I haven't given up yet, but I do need some help. If nothing else works, I will do as the picture shows.
Thanks again,
George

Kitchen cabinet conundrum


well, I decided to bite the bullet and just buy a 12"H cabinet for above the micro. I'm still waiting for an electrician to install the dedicated circuit for the OTR micro...because the existing electrical has the kitchen overheads, the downstairs bath and one wall of the living room on that circuit.
I'll have him or her use the existing electrical to add an additional outlet on the existing circuit that has its own switch at counter level because I am thinking of plugging in rope lighting above the cabinets now....
I'll post pics along the way here for the cabinet project though and the lighting elsewhere on the forum.

George,
I am not exactly sure what you are attempting to do. If your cabinets are not full overlay (where the door comes to the edge of the frame) you could extend the crown over the face of the raised cabinet close to the edge of the door.

I just cant fully picture the look you are describing any other way than as in the photo. Do you have a photo of the space you want to install crown on, or a better description of your gaol.
