Hi
I'm looking for any advice on how to create a straight (as possible) line between a newly (slightly uneven) plastered ceiling and the wooden crown moldings. I've cleaned and sanded the wood to remove the excess plaster on all but the vertical section that meets the ceiling. Some parts have a couple of mm wood exposed, whilst in other areas it's completely covered such as the corners. I don't want to sand away too much plaster and risk creating a gap and the plaster is a few weeks old and pretty thick in places. I was either thinking of using a steel cutting edge to create the line and paint over some of the plaster, or by following the plasterers line and only painting the exposed wood. Either way Please forgive me if this is a newbie question and any help would be greatly appreciated.
Cheers Basil

Do you mean an electric multi tool with different heads? Wish I had one, just got started up 6 months ago and don't have the budget yet. After hand sanding the ceiling to prep for paint, i'm beginning to see the need.
Cheers though, any other thoughts Delta?

Sometimes you just have to curse the plasterer, shave what you can with a tape knife, and if you need to, fill the gap evenly with more JC. They should have removed the crown before plastering, but hindsight is 20-20.
