Last week, I taught you how to hold the crown molding and the saw and to position it correctly. Now, it is time to learn how to do the inside and outside corners. Okay great, here we have got a beautiful example of an inside corner and an outside corner that are very close to one another.
Now, what do you do to make the cuts? Well, the thing I would like to do I make small test pieces that show a perfect 90-degree outside corner and a perfect 90-degree inside corner. Now, these little test pieces are very important because they help teach you how to hold the crown molding and the saw when you go ahead and make your cuts.
Now, for example remember, on an inside corner, the longest part of the molding after the cut is made is the bottom of the cut, it is the bottom of the piece and on an outside corner, the exact opposite through. When you hold the crown molding up on the wall, you will notice that the longest point is the top of the molding. Keep that in mind.
Now, remember you have to hold the crown molding upside down and the saw to make all these work correctly. And, what I like to do sometimes is take a small piece of tape and actually mark the table of the saw and remind myself that that is the ceiling or the top of the molding and that the vertical part of the—box saw which we would call the fence, put a piece of tape there that says that is the wall.
All right, see how these test pieces fit. Let me tell you another advantage in using them, they help you avoid waist. Go ahead and cut your test pieces, make sure you understand the relationship, put them up on the wall and the ceiling. Once you got it down pat, then you are ready to advance to the big long pieces. Hope your crown molding goes well.
