Hi I'm Tim Gipson and I'm going to talk to you about how to cut crown molding angles. Now when cutting crown molding angles the most important thing is to make sure to get the orientation of the crown molding correct so when we look at our miter saw we want to treat the back fence here as the wall and the base as the ceiling. So in this case I've got the crown molding and I want to hold it upside down so now when I line up to cut my 45 degree it orients my molding so that when I make that cut and make the opposite cut this would be, if this was the other piece then I would rotate the saw to the other 45 and I would make the opposite cut so that when I put the two pieces together as you can see it forms a 90 degree for going around the corner and then if I were cutting the inside I would cut it just the opposite. So the important thing when you are setting up your molding is to make sure that you have got the proper orientation. So again you want to cut it upside down, you want to treat the base as your ceiling, the back fence as your wall and as long as you orientate and cut 45 degree angles you can cut perfect outside corners or inside corners on your crown molding. I'm Tim Gipson and that's how to cut corners on your crown molding.
