How To Install Crown Molding
This very detailed article about how to install crown molding by Daniel Westbrook wrote is for you, if you ever wanted up your game as a tradesperson. Its a step by step tutorial that explains how to lay out, cut and install custom ceiling crown molding without using any math. The project shown, as with all my projects, is captured in pictures, on one of my projects, in a real world setting as we worked on installation.
Here is a little excerpt,
“In the late 1800s, profiled mouldings became more standardized as machinery allowed millwork shops to be more consistent with their runs. Mass production made what would have been labor-intensive, hand-planed mouldings—generally affordable only to the elite—much less expensive, making them available to all. That period of time was the culmination of industrial ingenuity, gifted master craftsmen, and building standardization, creating what we know today as millwork. Crown moulding became popular in this era.”
