Re: Crown Moulding Installation


You did fine on time to install. As other have said. Kitchens are harder because you have to work over everything. Up/down/in/out they are just time consuming. Think of all the corners you had compared to a basic room.

I've done the same as you. I just figure more time now. Lost one kitchen because I priced the crown installation too high. Oh well. Better than loosing money.

As for the video above, somebody obviously taught him that "trick." I've been taught a few tricks over the years. After a while I learned some of the right ways. It all goes back to education.

Don't beat yourself up. The work in itself is hard enough trying to be safe, careful etc. Nothing happens overnight. You did well. Never use the blocks as it shows lack of effort and experience. My trim supplier will put together whatever I need with a profile but all applications are not that easy. Good job.

Love the safety precautions:
Blade guard out of the way for entire cut? Check.
Safety glasses? On the top of the head, Check.

I just watched this video. It should be illegal to post something like that. It's not only wrong, but extremely dangerous. A lot of HOs go to You Tube for instructions on how to do something. That was one of the craziest videos I've ever seen. I'm not even kidding.

That is some impressively bad work.

I LOVE that he says, "We all good." at the end of the video. Yup. You're perfect. Never change.

Gonna have to throw in a couple flat head screw drivers for my next crown install. That's what I have been missing all these years...

I would rather cope my miters than do that. He didn't even find the angle of the corner. He just assumed it's 90. I'm still SMH.

I laugh thinking about the big arse grin on the guy and then think how he explains the tube of caulk he used to fill the gap between the wall and crown or the call back when all that caulk shrinks and and pulls the miter apart.

Re: Crown Moulding Installation


On the flipside are there any good resources for correct installation of crown? I've never actually had the opportunity to install crown in my short career, none of our clients have opted for any.

Re: Crown Moulding Installation


Most of you guys go in wrong direction. Coping foot and boxes aren't right direction. No way that you can have better cope of crown from down up with one hand then me from up down with two hands holding jig saw. And Christ I told you already 100 times. Cutting crown up side down is over. Compound cut is only way to go.
Btw massive respect for you capable cope maple or mahogany 8" crown with one hand and upside down. I saw before 5 years one guy coping oak with rotozip tool.
