crown molding

Hi everyone,

I am looking to install 2 1/4 inch crown molding in my home. Instead of searching for all of the studs in the wall to attach my molding, can't I just angle my gun to where I would hit the wall top plate since the molding I am using is smaller as compared to bigger ones. Any info. would be great.

Bingo!! No more calls....we have a winner, here!! With the smaller crown, using a 2 1/2" nail will bite just fine in the top plates. Let us know how it goes with the install. We enjoy pictures of projects finished.

I agree with Larry. Stay away from electrical cables by avoiding nailing directly above switches and receptacles. Post some photos of your project.

This goes a bit beyond answering your question but I ran across an excellent resource for installing crown molding and would like to share it with you.
