Top cabinets are installed at two heights or depths to create a focal point or add drama. Usually forward cabinets or the taller are at the center surrounded by cabinets that are briefer. These are called height cabinets. Many homeowners enjoy the overall look of crown molding along the upper border of the cabinet face to finish the look of the cabinets off. Having staggered cabinets does not alter crown molding is installed.
Assess the diameter of the forward or tall cabinet. Carry your crown molding to the miter saw. Turn the molding upside-down so the fence of this saw is the surface of the cabinet and also the base of this saw is your ceiling.
Move the arm of the miter saw to the left and right position the arm. So you can trim near the side that is left slide the molding. Hold the molding flat to the fence along with the base and create your cut.
Measure from the cut to the correct and indicate your width dimension. Slide the molding to the left. Move the arm of the miter saw and position the arm. Align the blade with your mark. Hold the molding flat to the fence along with the base and create your next cut. Turn up the molding right-side and fit it to the upper border of your cabinet. Set aside the molding.
Measure from the edge of the cabinet to the left front corner. Move the saw’s arm to line and the middle. Twist the molding to the left and right make the cut. Measure from the trim indicate and edge your next cut. Move the arm to the right 45-degree line. Line up your mark together with the blade. Hold the molding to the fence and base and produce your next cut. Turn up the molding right-side and fit it to the cut piece. You’ll have a perfectly mitered outside corner. Repeat this procedure for the next side piece using the opposite angle cut.
Nail the molding to the top border of the cabinet using a nail gun along with finish nails. Space your nails every eight inches. Hold the corner and drill two pilot holes into the conclusion of the next cut corner through the conclusion of one cut corner. Apply carpenter’s glue along the inner surface of this corner cut edges and press on the corners well. Tap two finish nails through the pilot holes in the corner combined.
Cut interior corners with a technique that is working. The very first piece is cut to 90-degrees, when two parts of crown molding float in an interior corner. Cut the next piece in a 45-degree angle. It will not fit. Draw a line around the outside cut border to make it easy to see. Use a pencil. Cut along the line with a coping saw. Cut away from the miter cut by 25-degrees. Position the trim crown molding on the first molding . It will fit and look as a mitered corner. Use this technique on the interior corners.
