If you’re looking to add some additional architectural interest to the walls in your home, then you consider installing crown molding.

    Mark your cuts in place when it’s possible. You may want to measure your moldings ahead of time, but measuring will often leave you open to miscalculations.

  • When cutting the molding, don’t lay it flat. While this may seem the easiest way to cut your crown, it’s not. You would need a saw that allows you to tilt the blade and rotate it, not to mention a set of tables to know what the correct angles should be for the cuts.
  • Use a power miter saw. Place your material so that it is against the saw fence at the same angle that you plan on nailing it to the wall.
