Cove molding around open doorway

I am installing cove molding around the current doorway trim of an open doorway (no door on it). The reason I'm doing this is because I've paneled the wall with beadboard, and there is a slight gap between the beadboard and the doorway molding. I could NOT remove the previous molding as this is a very old house, and removing existing molding becomes a real issue. The cove molding, if I can get it properly cut, fits nicely into the molding that exists, making the current molding more extensive, especially after I caulk it. However, I'm having trouble figuring out my angles and how to cut. I have a miter saw (noncompound).

What angles are you having trouble with?

The angle cut at the top of the door trim should be 45`

Cool Thanks

I must have been extremely tired last evening. The reason my 45's weren't working was there is a big buildup of paint on the first corner I was attempting. 80 years worth of paint "drops" on that corner, so my previous molding that I'm abutting to is way out of wack. A scrapper will take care of that, and I'm golden. Duh....
