I actually registered here to ask this question, so I'm praying that someone has the answer.

I'm almost finished remodeling my kitchen, and I'm ready to put the crown up on the tops of the cabinets. I have a corner module (a corner flanked by two 18 inch cabinets on either side) that I'm trying to figure out. Facing the corner, the top of the cabinet on the left is 4.5 inches from the ceiling. The top of the cabinet on the right is 2.5 inches from the ceiling. The problem here is that the house is a 50's ranch and the ceiling is totally out of whack. It slopes lower as you move away from the wall that would be on my left in this scenario. The cabinets are level- so I'm not guilty of poorly hanging them. That's out.

How the heck do I build up the crown so that there is no gap at the top of the left cabinet? I can't imagine that I'd run the crown right against the ceiling, because then it wouldn't be level where it met the cabinets and would look terrible.

Whoa that would be very hard to do with just CROWN. might want to consider putting ceiling tiles up and level off the ceiling that way, then finish off the crown.
