Good heads up on the RAS. I been looking closer at thier sanders and if money were no object.....The RAS looked like one of the most useful

Wouldn't having the right blade, whatever that is, work fine on soft wood? I miter cabinet crown as well, just have to cope it when meeting another piece.

The RAS has many uses for sure. On this same job I had to tape a drywall patch over a very heavy, painted texture. Used the RAS to sand it down for my tape coat. Worked like a charm

Re: Crown Moulding Installation


I bought the blades from them, I thought it was still aggressive so unless its hard wood and a big profile I do it by hand. Its not that much slower.

Re: Crown Moulding Installation


The 144bd or whatever they are, are an aggressive tooth set blade.

I tried blades with less set, but found the more aggressive blades work better.

You need to make the jig to hold the crown in position and firmly in place.

Re: Crown Moulding Installation


I have started using the coping foot and a grinder on occasion. I am nowhere good enough to do the higher cost trim with either one yet though, so I still use the good old fashioned coping saw, files and sandpaper route when I am doing any of the expensive stuff.

Re: Crown Moulding Installation


Travis, I never ran into that situation, but (just a thought) would installing a 90 block in the corner provide a more finished, neater look - just for that particular situation where two different crown moldings meet?
Something similar to one pictured.

Bosch 244D, I get 'em from amazon.
I've got some Dewalt 6 tpi blades that work good for coping, not sure what number, but I got a ton because they were on clearance...
I've got my coping foot on my old Bosch jig saw.

I hadn't even thought of doing it that way. That could be a way to do it. Not sure if I'd like it more or not. Hard to picture it against a cabinet.

Be less time for sure.

I don't think a pendant would look quite right in this situation, in fact it would draw more attention to the fact. Short of matching the crown size and profile around the room, I think the way he scribed it is the most feasible solution for this room.

Re: Crown Moulding Installation


To me, I think that way he did it would attract more of my attention. I'm not saying what he did was wrong in any way.

I just mean, if I was there for dinner, I'd probably look at that corner most of the night thinking about different ways of handling that situation. I'm weird like that.lol

This is why when I'm invited to friends houses for dinner, I keep my head down and try not to look at the millwork, etc... else my OCD will ruin the evening for sure...

Re: Crown Moulding Installation


I like my little 12v jigsaw for coping. Lightweight and comfortable to hold upside down. I dont think I would like using the Trion or Carvex upside down.

Its the only way I use a jigsaw, cut from underneath.

Cordless or my corded carvex are equally comfortable

In DIYers homes who don't own a miter saw.

I love those DIYers, because now I can charge them extra to take down their half finished work, and install new material.

Darcy, I only have the CXS and don't really plan to get any Festool cordless drills right now. Is the corded a fine enough saw? I like cordless obviously but it's $200 more and the battery would be likely to not always be charged when I want it

Kind of looking at the corded barrel grip.
