I can only speak to the Crown45 and it does nothing as you said. The crown sits on the table and it can handle any crown.

I'll check it out. I like to make my own jigs that suit me.
Thankfully I don't eat hole turtle...

See, according to this, you're doing it wrong:

"I cut crown molding with compound cut not with special jig that take 3 rooms of yours house or project."

Re: Crown Moulding Installation


It mostly just looks like a pain to me. Seems that it be hard to see your marks since its sitting on the edge you would typically mark on.

Travis is right. That jig pretty much negates one of the main advantages of in position in both accuracy and speed. Add to that the fact that you need to know/care what the spring angle is. In this respect it has the same problem as the Kreg version. There are quite a few crowns that have spring angles other 38*/52* or 45*. There are two that I use pretty frequently that have springs of 35* and 50*.

I try my best to educate customers so they can see difference between hacks and real experts. I was called to redo crown molding behind someone else already a dose times because customers spot silicone or putty in corners. Just before 3 weeks I get complete handrails to do (and get paid 40$/hour) after customer spot that guy who start project do not know what he do. Carpentry and especially trim carpentry is fertile ground for actors, and my add is oriented that customers can recognize quality work. When I say good for actors mean that who act in electricity get carried away by emergency car. In trim you just put putty in corner and mitt crown. Then next year customer ask me if I would redo for 20$/hour because they just spend *** $ past year at same thing. However didnít post an add over month.

Why would any of us need to buy a DVD from a guy who can't even pull his own permits and advertises on Craigslist? Not for nothing, but you appear to be delusional.

I didn't know that many guys are not capable cope hardwood crown. When advertise again in September will add line like - "I DO cope hardwood crown (maple, oak, mahogany, cherry) so joints will not fall apart with weather change".

Just to make clear, not important. I'm a Croatian and we are culturally oriented toward central Europe. One of reason is we are Catholics. We do not have any Russian influence whatsoever, nor any special sympathy for them.

Anyone who can cope can cope hardwood crown. Like Justin said earlier, cutting, coping and installing crown are basic carpentry skills.


Here's a piece of prefinished hardwood crown I had laying around that I just hand coped in my driveway. Maybe I should put out a DVD?

Sorry, Tipi, I was thinking you were from Ukraine. I really enjoyed my visit to Croatia.
