crown

  1. Carpentry
    Struggling to cut this large cove crown. Overall height is about 6.5" and the saw has no problem cutting any angle (dual bevel 12" slider saw). The problem is that the spring angle is different between top and bottom of this crown so cutting a left outside corner works fine, but right outside...
  2. Kitchen & Bath Remodeling
    I am installing crown moulding in my bathroom. I have an open corner shower that is enclosed with 5' shower walls and 18" glass shower screens. The corner walls are tiled to the ceiling. Since the shower is not enclosed, I have to decide whether to run the crown through the shower, or end it...

    I am installing crown molding on my kitchen cabinets. I have no problem with the 90 angle (two 45 degree cuts), but i am having trouble with 3 other angles. They are all 135 degree inside (if that makes sense). I am using a compound miter saw, but can't seem to get the miter and bevel set...

    Hi all, I know that this topic has been beaten pretty well, but wanted to get some more specific advice. I am installing white crown in a guest bedroom of a 100 year old condo with plaster ceilings and walls. Everything is wavy and out of square, to say the least. Three of four walls ended up...

    I have two questions one is just a verification and that is on a crown piece if it were for ceiling/wall you'd use the flat spots where it would tuck into the angle between C and W but if I am putting it on top of a Kitch cab then it seems like you have to use another flat spot to do this. I...
  7. Remodeling
    We're wrapping up a kitchen remodel. Our upper kitchen cabinets run the length of one wall and have crown modeling that attaches to the top. The crown doesn't quite come to the ceiling, which wouldn't be so bad, but the ceiling slopes down near the center so it doesn't look so nice (it's an...

    I have a load bearing wall that goes down the centre of my basement, I am in the process of finishing the basement and just realized how bad this main partition wall is. Instead of a standard beam in the centre of my basement I have a 2x6 (dimensional lumber) framed wall running down the...
  9. Carpentry
    I have been practicing coping UMDF and am not sure that I like it. Especially annoying is how the little point that drops into the mini miter cut is easily damaged. My house is in So Cal, about 12 miles inland from Laguna Beach and on the inland side of the coastal hills (so it doesn't get much...

    I will be hanging crown molding in my home in Lake Forest, CA, that is about 15 miles inland from the coast and on the inland sice of the coastl mountains. It is dry with little humidity. I will use paint grade and have done a small room with MDF, but am wondering if I should step up to a less...
