Need advice on feature wall over fireplace


First of all I would like to thank everyone for the advice on my feature wall in my bedroom. Now I am in the process of doing a feature wood wall over my fireplace in my living room over my fireplace.

The wall over my fireplace is flat and does not stick out like some walls do by the fireplace. The wall has crown molding on it and I was wondering should a section of the crown molding be removed over the fireplace or should I just go up to the molding with the wood feature wall.

Thanks again for any advice.

It ultimately depends how far up the wall you bring the feature, but in many cases if you’re going to install a decorative wall veneer up to the ceiling, the crown will then be returned into the wall detail.

What is the best tool to use to cut a piece of the crown molding out while installed on the wall. I was thinking of a Dremel but not sure if that would work.

Thanks

A multitool and a steady hand would be best. Example: https://www.amazon.com/FMM350QSL-Mut...70_&dpSrc=srch
