Giving credit where credit is due
« on: January 24, 2019, 06:41 PM »
The cabinets I posted in the finish section of this forum are to receive a 7-1/4" cove crown.

The crown had cupped so it was rocking on th bed of the Kapex. Due to it’s size cutting in position was not an option. Grief would be an understatement.

I called @justinh to find out which DeWalt 12" saw I should purchase (he is the guru of DeWalt miter saws). He informed me I did not need to buy a new saw and explained to me how to make a bed that allowed the crown to "float" on the bed.

This solved the rocking issue but we still have an improper spring angle. This was causing us to need to rock the crown back to get the corners to "almost" close. Solved this issue on the jointer with some mag switch feather boards and a board clamped to the vertical fence.

Thanks Justin, your advice turned a miserable job into a normal endeavor.

Pictures below, someone may have to rotate them, I posting from my iPad.

Forgot to take pictures of the crown installed, will do so at a later date.

Hey Tom
I use a plywood jig that I clamp to the tablesaw fence which supports the crown as I send it through the saw. I use the jig when I have to adjust bad crown angles that are angled the wrong way and also when I'm changing the spring angle of a crown moulding which is useful when your dealing with angled walls.
