How do you cut the corners of crown molding. No trouble with base board, but I've tried all kinds of ways with crown. I am using small crown (not too expensive; relatively). I cut a 45 and it's not even close. I tried tutning it different ways and still, blahh. I have at my disposal an electric miter saw (not compound) and a sears radial saw that has a big base and turns every which way and of course a shark tooth hand saw. i just can't figure it out and I'm going to have to go back for more crown before long (I'm only having to install about 35 feet of crown molding). Thanks

Here are two suggestions:
1. When you cut crown molding it needs to be placed in the miter saw upside down. You may need to clamp on a support piece in jig fashion so the molding won't move.
Here's the trick, it needs to be coped. Remove the back portion of the 45 cut with a coping saw. Now it should fit.
2. Go to your home center and find/buy decorative corner blocks, then the molding can be butted against the blocks.
good luck,
