    I do have a question for you… (I’ll post here so others might benefit) – Do you use wood putty, caulk or? something else to conceal joints, nail holes, etc? (For wood and/or composite moulding)

    I’d be more than happy to answer here but this place isn’t setup well for explanations, like you can’t post links? or pictures.

    At the ceiling and wall lines i use a good quality painters caulk. For filling nail holes and improving some joints on interior work I use a mixture of “plaster or Paris” and joint compound in a 4 to 1 ratio of plaster to compound.

    Over the years I’ve found this to work quite well and is inexpensive. You can if you want you a product like MH Ready Patch which is an excellent product for both? interior and exterior work.

    Sorry for the split post there is a 500 character limit in your posts.

    Coping is indeed the way to go. I have the DeWalt 12″ sliding compound saw with matching stand (which extends/adjusts to allow the cutting of up to 16′ long pieces), along with the DeWalt crown stops you mentioned. The stops are almost essential for getting uniform cuts on long pieces of crown.
    With that being said, I prefer using my variable speed Bosch jigsaw w/coping foot attachment. Miters on inside corners are fine w/paint grade, caulkable wood…. but coping is a must on? stain grade.

  9. digitalprecisions says:

    Mud/paint buildup in inside corners (not to mention walls intersecting nowhere near? 90 degrees) will make using miter cuts in “real world” applications frustrating.
    The only instance I’d go out of my way to miter the inside corners as opposed to coping is if you have highly detailed crown molding. Lots of detail will make your coping hell.
    Thanks for sharing your knowledge and all your videos, it’s much appreciated.
