Crown molding end cut help please

Please see attached pic & give me advice on how to make an end cut for this type of crown molding. I am not going to continue the crown molding past this corner. thanksName:  crown.jpg

Cut it just like you would if it was continuing around the corner but stop it short and have a short return that dies into the wall - just short of the corner.

You can either return it to the wall short of the corner... or you can actually turn the corner and THEN immediately return it to the wall. You do this with miter joints. Kind of like this, but crown moulding is not nested against the fence when you cut it.

You would want to finish the corner bead before you put any crown moulding up.
