Here is a few pics of some crown moulding weve been doing in the Temecula Murrieta area. Im pretty sure we have done every kind of cut possible and it is super fun. My favorite thing to look at is a cut that is challenging but when figured out is seamless. Just wanted to share some of these photos.

You can be justifiably proud of this work Joseph. I just cut and installed my first cove molding in my son’s bathroom. I had to learn about spring angles and proper miter saw setting to get it rich. All new to me, It came out good, but admittedly not nearly as well as yours. Spackle is a wonderful thing.

i could have sworn that “fun crown molding cuts” was an oxymoron. Well done!

Very nice work.

Love the 45 corners on radiused drywall corners. I might borrow that idea if you don’t mind.

I sure hope there was a worthy apprentice standing there next to you helping and learning how to do crown like that.

The corners on the bullnose are always 5/8” in width at the bottom of the crown. We make a 3 piece jig to mark where the crown will be as far as on the bullnose area. We then measure and cut and every corner is exactly the same and snug to the bullnose. I have no idea if any of that makes sense im not that great with words.(more visual.) I have two apprentices working for me and they are slowly but surely learning.

Outstanding work!!! The bath room picture especially has me scratching my head over how you can do that!

In my experience (little), crown moulding is like rocket science unless you have a jig. With a jig, it’s like brain surgery.

But you have to be a genius to make the jig. I don’t have either the CPU or RAM to do that kind of job.

Twigger, the bathroom crown is actually quite simple. As long as the crown is in the same plane or on the same slope it is just like a normal cut. Its the transitions from different planes that gets a little tricky.
