I have added a built in display cabinet into my living room. The living room has crown moulding in it. The Crown was installed 2 years ago and is in great condition. The span of the crown is 20 Feet long (1 piece)on the wall. The cabinet is built out 16 inches into the room and I would like to turn the wall crown moulding and continue it across the face of the new cabinet. However, I do not want to pull the 20 Ft Crown Moulding off the wall to make the miter cut. Is there a way to cut and cope the new crown which will go on the face of the cabinet to match up with the wall crown moulding? I have a Dewalt compound miter saw to make the cut and a coping saw if needed. The cabinet face is a 90 degree turn.

If you have a trim duplicator, you can get the profile of the trim and transpose it onto the new moulding, cope it off, butt it together, and fill in the gap with caulk. If you dont have a trim duplicator, you can cut off a small piece of the new trim and set it on the whole piece of new trim to get the trim profile. Takes some practice but not really that hard to do. God luck.
