Miter Table©

The Miter Table© is for cutting trim (baseboards, chair rails, etc.) with a miter saw or compound miter saw.  (Instructions are on the back of the Miter Table© and Chapter 3.)

Note:  You can cut crown molding using the Miter Table but, you must have the crown molding propped up against the saw fence (See illustration to the right).

Trim that is installed flat on the wall is cut either lying down on the miter saw table or standing up against the fence.  This includes baseboards, chair rails, quarter and half round trim, cove molding, corner molding, fireplace trim, and door and window casings. See page 24 for more details.

Step 1 Measure the corner angle with the True Angle® Tool where you will be installing your crown molding or trim.
Step 2 Find the measured inside or outside corner angle in the Miter Table©.  Read the miter angle in the adjacent column to the right.
Step 3 Locate the type of cut needed in the instructions printed on the back of the Miter Table©.  Rotate your miter table to the miter angle obtained in Step 2.  Place the crown molding or trim on your saw to match the drawing in the instructions.  Make the perfect cut.

Crown Molding Table©

The Crown Moulding Table© is for cutting crown molding laying flat and face up on your compound miter saw.  Crown moulding with spring angles other than 38° and 45° will require the Compound Miter Chart© or the Miter Excel Program© or the Crown Molding Table in the book, pages 124 thru 141.  

The Crown Molding Table© will provide miter and blade tilt angles for cathedral/vaulted ceilings (see customer projects page for examples).  Some outside corners for cathedral/vaulted ceilings will require the Compound Miter Chart© or the Miter Excel Program©.  Chapter 5 of my book has complete details.

Note:  Always check the crown moulding spring angle before you cut (see page 34).  You must know what crown molding spring angle you have!

Step 3 The dimensions you need can be obtained from the back of the chart.  Set your saw and make the perfect cut.   (See Flowerpots & Birdhouses page.)  (You will probably need to use another type of saw such as a table saw to cut the material.)
