crown molding inside blunt angle problem

I have almost finished crown molding in my bedroom. The key word is almost. I ran into a problem with an inside 130 degree blunt corner. I can't figure out the angles on the compound miter. I would appreciate any help. Thanks.

Try these charts: http://www.altereagle.com/Crown_molding.html

click on the appropriate chart. Maybe the angles listed there will get you closer than guessing. Your crown is probably getting shorter and shorter!

I just checked out the sight. It looks like that may do it. I will try it and let you know. Thanks for the help.

If anyone else has any ideas, please let me know.(Just in case the chart doesn't work)

BTW, 130 sure is an odd angle, double check it. Most framing is either 120 or 135.
