crown molding nothing to it i installed trim with a guy for 9 months before i started painting also built cabinets and operated the spray booth for a year




set the table at 31.6 dg and the bevel at 33.9 measure twice cut once and run with it keep the left or right end depending on if its inside or outside corner if its only a 22.5 degree corner just set the saw at half what i originally stated (and cut it face up)takes a bit of practice to make it look good. now base board and chair rails are a real breeze and i think a nice chair rail two tone paint and maybe a few framed portions on the lower part of the wall really transform a dining room

If you do get into other trades, change the name of your company from painting to "contracting" or something of the like. I mean really....I'm not gonna hire a septic guy to install a pool for me....just because he has the tools and can dig a hole.
Then painters shouldn't be power washing, drywalling, mudding etc... I offer it as a service and bill it out more then I do painting... The thing is the other services I offer other painting I am competitive on price and hourly rate... Most other professions that paint bill it out way less then us "professional" painters.

This sounds like you did not cope the inside corners?? What happens when you don't have a perfect 90 degree corner? Did you ever install crown on kitchen cabinets where the rake is different? If you did then all your angles stated above or indents your saw came out of the box with possibly quite a bit off.

that is what takes the longest, is getting the coping right on crown. It is such a deeep picky cut..

that above looks nice and if you do not cope, some of the compound miter cuts are rediculous as you stated 33.9 and 22.5deg you have to know how to do that or have an awesome setup otherwise you will be spinning your wheels.
