Our house was built in the 40's and we have round corners,also have plaster crown molding. Which by the way is really pretty, well at least most of it. In the kitchen some of the crown molding has chiped and cracked and I would like to take the 2 bottom ledges off all the way around,How do I do this without damagiing the rest of the molding?

Hi there
Hard to tell how it is constructed. I would imagine it being one solid.
You don.t say how thick the area is you desire to remove.
My first plan of attack would be to use a grinder with a masonry blade.
This will make a lot of dirt. Usually a good idea to have someone hold a vacuum behind grinder. This helps cut down some of the mess.
Thanks, hope this helps
