Bay Windows And Crown Molding
I Know that this subject, (crown molding) is a Horrible, scrape your fingernails on a blackboard, tear your hair out kind of subject and .. I am sorry for bringing it up but, "I need help"!
I have installed crown in my master bedroom and in my dining room.
Believe me, I learned the hard and expensive way of doing it. (Lots of scrap and Lots of money to replace that scrap)
I actually did those rooms using one of those old fashioned miter boxes that uses one of those .. backsaws .. powered By Hand!
After all of that, I just went out and purchased a Dewalt, double bevel, compound miter saw!! (YES!!)
Here is my problem: I can do inside and outside corners but, in the room that I want to tackle now, I have a bay window.
The Dewalt does a great job with the inside/outside corners but I Have No Idea and can't find the info anywhere about miters for bay windows.
I know the angle in degrees of the actual wall, (44 and 46 degrees per inside angles) but I don't know how to translate that to the saw as to bevel and miter?
Just spent hours and as you know .. Lots of money on wasted material trying to solve this problem on my own.
Well, Here I am, asking for your help. LOL
I am So Upset!
You'd think that once you have succeeded in doing two whole rooms .. a little thing like a bay window would be a snap .. It Ain't!
Yes, I am a lady but that doesn't mean that I can't learn to do this.
My other rooms look fantastic but .. alas .. No bay windows there. 8-)
Thank You All,
