Someone posted this question a while ago but received no answer. I, too, and considering the same project and wonder if anyone has any advise for this project?

I am trying to install crown molding on a ceiling with a slight pitch. I need to find out how to calculate the cuts to make the corners fit properly. I would really appreciate any detailed instructions you might have.

Hi J,
I think I know what you mean but need some pics to confirm it. Can you send some pics or drawings via this website to me? Sometimes words are just not enough. Thanks.....Mark Hammond

I don't have a picture, but I'll try to explain better.

My room in question is a 24' x 28' rectangle.

The ceiling height is 8' at the walls but slopes up to 10' at the center of the room.

How do you determine miter cuts for ceiling like this....I would like to take the easy way out using a crown moulding system that has those corner block that the mouling butts up to, but where [or how] can you find block that are long enough to be trimmed to the ceiling angle and still be large enough to accomodate the moulding?

I hope this is more clear.
