I have a room with a "Flat Roof", which actually has a small slop, 5" over 20ft. I am putting up crown molding but am having alot of troble with the joints. I understand how to cut molding for a normal room with a flat ceiling. Can anyone help me cut molding for a slightly pitched ceiling?????????

I once did a job that was the same situation as you have. The customer and I worked out a simple way around all the angle cuts that you'd normally need to deal with. I used an oversized block in the corners to match the slope the ceiling that would give you a flat surface to meet with the molding.. In effect this gave you a flat surface to butt. Since the room was fairly ornate with several built up moldings we also added a turned spindle in the center of the block. The large size of the block did anything but hide the corner feature which we used as an added architectural feature. I hope this helps. Good luck...MJH
