Any carpenter basically can cut you the corners... some of the home owner conglomerates carry them, but do it yourself it's much more rewarding.

Plus those corners are extremely difficult to get lined up and not look like a patch... unless you are referring to the corner blocks, which in my humble opinion look uuuugly!

Go to my crown tutorial on my construction site and cut your crown using the "in position" method, it is the easiest to grasp quickly.

I am in the process of writing a book on crown, and that new site is where you will find some of the tutorial rewritten to reflect the book. It's all free and if you have any problems or question use our dedicated crown forum, plus has all of the links.
