I just recently bought a cape cod house and am running crown molding around the first floor. I have run of wall where the celing angles down from the horizontal. No corner just a straight run that gets to a point and angles down. I know the total angle is 147 degrees from the horizontal ceiling to the slope. Can anyone help. Please. I only have these two pieces left. Basically draw a horizontal line on the paper and then angle it down the angle toward the bottom of the line and the paper is 147. also I am pretty sure the angle between the wall and the crown is 45. Help please

Bisect the angle, set that for your miter & cut it from the top with it's spring angle right side up rather than upside down as usual.

You'll see more examples of it at the "how to install crown" site and I just put a few pictures up on the alter eagle crown forum as well linked fron there.
