How to Cut Crown Molding for an Outside Corner, Blasdell, New York

They have locations throughout Massachusetts, New York, Ohio, and Connecticut. With discounts year-round, they are the place to go for all of your DIY needs. From kitchen cabinets and flooring to doors and windows, they have an exceptional selection of affordable options.

One of the most common home improvement projects is replacing, repairing, or installing crown moulding in your house, either around a window or the edge of a room. The concept can seem easy enough, but precision is key when working with crown molding to avoid gaps, wasted materials, and sloppy work. 

Here are some tips on how to cut the outside corner of crown moulding so it’s ready to be put in place:

  • crown moldingPrepare: You’ll need a good miter saw to get the most accurate and cleanest cuts. Outside corners are unfortunately very rarely perfectly square, even in new houses, so having a precise saw and measuring carefully is necessary. Make sure you have a pencil and two 1x4s on hand, as well as your molding.
  • Measure: Line your two 1x4s up along each side of the corner so they are flat against the ceiling. Trace where they cross each other. You should have two lines on on the bottom board.
  • Cut: Use your pencil to connect the end of one traced line to another. This should make a diagonal line (so it looks like there’s an “N” on the board). Line up your miter saw along this diagonal and cut. Set your saw to this angle. You can now cut the molding for your outside corner, and it will fit together perfectly.
