miter

  1. Carpentry
    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...

The area is too narrow to place the full width of the trim -- which would make for an easy job with my table saw... BUT the area available for...
