Topic tags/keywords: question joinery miter molding architectural millwork tip resource

Hey Guys
This is a hard question to put into writing. I am building a big floor standing mirror with cove molding on top. This is the first time I have built something like this and has been going well…until I went to cut my molding. I cut the molding at 31 degrees and than needed to miter them to wrap around the edges. Needles to say after I cut the 45 degree miter they did not come together at a 90 degree, as well as, the top and bottom became angled. How do I cut these angles to wrap my molding around the edge of the mirror with a 31 degree angle on the face.

Usually I glue up wood so I can band saw the shape out and route the profile on the router table.

Here’s one way to do it.
