I'm in the process of installing crown moulding, and need to cut a mitered return where the ceiling of the sunken living room. In other words, the moulding runs along the wall/ceiling then stops. In order to cover the triangular gap, I need to cut a mitered return at the end of the run.
The corner angle is true (90 degrees,) and I'm using 52 degree crown moulding. I have a compound miter saw.

If the crown mold is a 52/38 degree then you will need a setting of 31.62 degrees for the miter and 33.86 degrees for the bevel with a ninety degree angle. The angle that you want when using a 45/45 degree crown mold is 35.26 degree miter setting and 30.00 degree angle setting for the bevel. You may want to practice with some scrap oieces first....Mark Hammond
