How to Cut a Miter on a Tall Crown Molding
Big problem! Building a large wall cabinet out of walnut. I built up some nice crown molding and to get a good scale I made it 4″ tall. I finally got to the point of cutting miter joints and mounting the molding to the cabinet. It was then I discovered my rather dated chop saw could only handle heights of about 3 1/2 inches and my radial arm saw about 3 3/4 inches. My 10″ table sawwould be very iffy. Now no sane person would spend another $600 or more for an upgrade to a new compound miter saw simply to make this one-time cut. But I can’t think of another way except to try it by hand, which for me would be a lost cause on a piece of 4″ by 3″ solid walnut. Any ideas?
