## How do you measure corner angles for crown molding?

Once you determine the angles of your room, you can set up the miter saw to properly cut the molding. To get measurements for the crown molding, measure each wall length at ceiling height from corner to corner. The length will be the long points for the molding when cutting inside corners at a 45-degree angle.

## How do you cut the corners on crown molding for cabinets?

To cut crown molding inside corners, start by measuring the angle of the corner using an adjustable protractor, and setting a compound miter saw to the correct angles. Next, place the piece of crown molding in the jig and the bed of your saw to cut the right inside corner.

## How do you know what angle to cut?

Use a straightedge to bisect, or cut in half, the corner diagonally. The diagonal line represents the miter angle. So if you have a 90-degree corner, you'll cut it in half with a line drawn with a straightedge to get two 45-degree miter angles.
