Btw. And really no joke. As long as we talk about crown here only me post some pictures. What is with rest of you. Wanna se especially stain grade coping. One more picture from true expert.
I wouldn't have coped anything in the kitchen you pictured. I would have pre-assembled with glue and nails/screws/staples from the backside and put it up in units. Reenforced like this is more durable long term than a cope and is also faster.

I don't usually bother taking pictures of crown only unless it's something out of the ordinary or part of a larger overall project. It's just crown. It is not hard and is only one very small part of the overall job description of a finish carpenter. Coping crown is not difficult in hardwood or softwood. I'm not sure if it is the language barrier or something else that is keeping you from understanding this.

For grins here's a couple pictures. The only reason I took pictures of the oak is because it's a 3 part built up that had both T&G and rabbets as part of its assembly.

Re: Crown Moulding Installation


These are of an uncopable profile that gets a combination of a cope and a miter/jack miter.

Someone asked to see the process and I was bored so I took pictures.

Re: Crown Moulding Installation


Here's a different coffer ceiling with both construction and finished pics. That room required the fabrication of the casework, raised panel wainscot and the ceiling with the crown being the easiest part of whole thing.

There are far more difficult things a finish carpenter must do than cope crown. Fabricating and installing this is just one example.

Re: Crown Moulding Installation


Justin how did you set those beams by yourself? Looks like the fireplace was a fun scribe.

On that job I worked as a sub to the millwork contractor. The beams are hollow and pre-finished. I handled the cutting, scribing and fitting of the beams and posts to each other and had the millwork contractor and his laborer help me move things when I wanted/needed help. I also did the glue up of all the beams and all of the reclaimed planking. He had a scaffolding company come in erect us a dance floor in the air. Between the three of us and my home made cabinet lift lifting and holding things in place it wasn't hard.

The scribing was interesting.

Re: Crown Moulding Installation


Justin that is quite the work platform. We have used drywall lifts before to raise beams but I wouldn't want to do it alone. You need to get the contractor to let you put a ground up before the stone masons start. It makes life a lot easier.

The job was a reno and the stone was existing. They wanted it saved and left un-modified.

I had help moving the larger ones but it was just as easy doing the small ones alone with the lift.

The scaffolding guys were the heroes on that one. Their platform made the job much easier. It wouldn't have turned out the way it did without them.

Re: Crown Moulding Installation


I'd love to have Tipitop's instructional DVD on hanging crown and his fastener schedule.
There is always room to learn something new.

Re: Crown Moulding Installation


I went to look at a job today: replacing two windows with a French door. The HO was bragging about his new kitchen. I took a quick look. The contractor installed crown flat against the cabinets. It really looked like you'd think it would too. I asked why he did it that way. The HO just shrugged his shoulders, like, "I don't know."

The same HO had colonial trim installed high up on the wall where crown would typically go.

I honestly would think, if he wanted crown that bad, just hire someone to install it.
