I'm going to be using a mitre box to cut molding and install it along the joint between the wall and ceiling. There is a corner hutch in the room as well as some other angles. Is there a tool I can get to measure the angles or a method for figuring the angles?

Typically you install a crown molding at the wall to ceiling. That is placed at an angle and cut at a compound angle.

I have seen flat stock placed there too though...

At any rate, whichever you are doing flat or compound crown I do have a step by step tutorial that explains how to do both.

As for the protractor best for either project you'll find the links to the starrett "prosite" on the site which we use extensively. With it you will place the protractor and it will give you the miter cut make it a fairly simple process.
