How-To Install Crown Molding

crown_molding_extreme.jpgIf you're looking down the barrel of a crown molding project, it's worthwhile to check out the article over at Extreme How-To, called, "Crown Molding in Review." Author Matt Weber goes over all the basics of installation, focusing on how to cope inside corners.

One thing that the article doesn't spend too much time on is how to actually cut the piece. It's a complicated process and would take an entire article in itself to explain. But, lookee here, Extreme How-To also has another article in its archives on just that topic. That one is called, "DIY Crown Molding and Trim."

We would suggest reading them both for a good picture of what's involved. Also, a while back, we looked at the Bench Dog Crown Cut, which looks like it could be a big help with the cutting aspect of the project.
