I need to know how to cut a compound mitre cut for a Inside corner on crown modeling. Also it's a corner cabinet so there's two angle's, Im not sure what the degree of the angle's are. Any help would be much appreciated.

You have to find the angle between the cabinets.

Go to and download the paper protractor to use with a T-bevel for a basic idea but you really need to get it with a proper protractor.

You also need to get the spring angle, then use the generator (on the site) if you are cutting in the flat position for the compound bevel & miter angles or bisect the angle for in position cutting.

It's all explained step by step there.

My guess would be if it's 38/52 crown and if it's @ 135 degrees than miter 14.31 and bevel 17.55 if cutting on flat.

A lot of "if's" there though.
