“How to crown moulding” is the question, there are tons of videos on YouTube and other places on “how to crown moulding“. And if you’ve noticed the main thing we all say is:
Cut crown moulding” upside down and backwards. Now this is the part that you have to get used to.
Just envision this you’re standing in front of your saw and the saw is in front of the wall that you will cut crown molding for. So just think about you standing there looking at the top left side where the crown molding cuts will be placed, this piece will be cut on the right-hand side upside down on the saw.
Two important things to remember on cutting crown molding is on ordinary straight walls the top of the crown molding bevels inwards. This is because when the crown molding is tipped out at the 90° joint they have to be shorter.
The other important thing to remember on “how to crown moulding” is when you come to an outside corner the top of the crown molding will be longer than the bottom. Also an important fact to note is that when you look at the whole section of crown molding the two ends are parallel so they both angle the same way.
