wait till you have to do a bull nose corner. I pretty much whittled pieces of trim till they fit.

While we are on the subject, whats the proper method for bull nose + trim? 22.5* angles? which i know my cheap miter box did not have.

45 or 38 degree? What size (height of the crown)? Do you have a compound sliding mitre or just a chop saw...or any saw....please don't tell me you're doing it with one of these.

try this, dead end one piece strait into the wall, measure the mating piece to the minor (inside) dimension and use a small coping saw to trim out the excess so that it fits tight to the dead end run... should be plenty of vids on youtube or elsewhere to show this technique, its EZ...

the big challenge is getting splice cut miters to fit good and tight...

Is this painted OR stained trim???

The way I do it. Take a piece of stock longer than you need 2 or 3 inches and cut a 22.5* both ways to make the back side of the molding the point of both cuts. Then cut your remaining piece to 22.5*. Glue it together and the grain should match.

Your best friend for crown is a inside/outside angle finder since no wall is ever plumb. If you cant figure out the angle and you think it might not be a 45 cut two scrap pieces at a 45 and butt them up in the corner and see if it looks right and tight if not trim until you find the right angle.

It's 45`, and the material is primed fiberboard. The walls are lathe and plaster so nothings square or true. I was planning on using coping method after i get the inside cuts down.. But I haven't figure out by cuts, yet.

Thanks for all the feedback..
