Cutting Crown Molding Upside Down and Backward
Plus a look at the jigs and tips that make this process foolproof.
In this video from the Fine Homebuilding archives, former editor Tom O’Brien explains why cutting crown molding upside down and backward is the only way to go. Not only does Tom help us visualize how and why this makes sense, but he shows us the jigs and tips that make it foolproof. What do you think? Do Tom’s methods stand the test of time?
That's the way to do it! As simple as possible, but no simpler.
