## How do you measure angles for crown molding?

## What angle do you cut crown molding on cabinets?

Set your miter saw to 45 degrees. This is an outward angle, so the top edge of the molding will be longer than the bottom edge. You should position the molding strip so that the flat vertical and horizontal faces are pressed against the table and saw fence.

## How do you determine the angle to cut wood?

The formula involves dividing 360 by the number of sides to calculate the corner angle. Then divide it by two to get the miter angle. If you’re making a five-sided project with all sides equal, you divide 360 by five to get 72 degrees. So each joint or corner forms a 72-degree angle.

## How do you Miter crown molding at any angle?

## Can you add crown molding to cabinets?
