cove moulding install ???

in the pickle with this...how do I cut a cove moulding correctly.
Have the first piece up which ends in a 90degree cut in the corner, how do i cut the next cove piece to butt into this 90o degree cove piece. I tried to cope it what a mess. then I tried to cut a compound 45o and a coping saw to cut out the rest...not very accurate

note that this is not crown moulding install but cove moulding which is mdf 3 1/4 " wide....step by step assistance is surely appreciated. THANKS

First thing throw the copeing saw in the tool box. Go down to the local rental store and get a power compound miter saw. If this is not an option a hand miter box is cheap and can be purchased at most home improvement stores for $25 or so. use 45's in corners. Copeing is for getting it to fit a counter or fireplace. Things where it dead ends. Don't reinvent the wheel. Save a headache for your self and get the right tool for the job.

good luck
