So to make cutting crown molding easier or less confusing, I decided to make myself one of those angle jigs using few pieces of scrap ply and hard board.
This one I made it for the 38-degree spring angle.
The 8 required test cuts confirmed the calculations and angles accuracy.

Hey Router man, How are you getting the cuts made without nicking your jig? Looks pretty good from here.

The jig supports the molding which extends outwards. basically I keep the jig as far away from the blade as I can
when making cuts. IF I cut the jig sides at 45 degree then I can get little closer to the blade.

Well bud, I didn’t know anything about crown molding either but as they say, U-Tube is your friend and this type of jig simplifies the confusing process.
This jig was basically experimental just to see if I could accurately build it for the 38-degree spring angle. The next jig will be adjustable to accommodate all three angles and anything in between.
