Need help! I'm a beginner at this. I did one wall/ceiling and the second piece(for the 2nd wall) didn't perfectly fit. I figured that a little wood filler would remedy that. Now I'm ready to do the third wall and the pieces just don't seem to fit. I went to a do it yourself class about a month ago and it seemed easy(they showed me an easier way I had originally planned through the use of a coping saw.). The thing is that the angle between the 2nd and 3rd wall is 135 degrees. I looked at my compound saw table and adjusted my saw accordingly. Can anyone guide me to a sight that explains this process so I could refresh my memory. This is really frustrating!

Hi joseph

The joys of crown moulding!I'm guessing that the problem is on your "coped" cut on the 3rd wall the front of your molding is showing a large gap?Correct?If you cut the profile at a 90 on a wall that is over 90 the back edge of your piece will fit tight and your front will gap.Here's the fixer..cope your cut a sharp angle inward along your penciled profile then use a sharp utility knife to cut out the s-curve.Then it will fit nice and tight.I don't know of a site on the web but if you live near a home depot they print an excellent book for do-it-yourselfers "home improvement 123".Anyhow,good luck w/your project!

WHAT EXATLY DO YOU MEAN BY CUTTING OUT THE S-CURVE WITH A UTILITY KNIFE? AM I NOT ALREADY DOING THAT WITH THE COPE SAW?
