Crown molding jigs - yeah or neigh?
I have been planning to put up some crown molding in our kitchen, but not having done it before, I have to say I am gunshy about the project. Further, the kitchen has a few funky angles that I know will be tricky. So I've looked at some of these jigs offered here and there, but see some wildly mixed reviews on them. Is it better to just do it the old fashioned way or are these jigs of use? FYI, I have a Ridgid 12" CMS and it has some crown molding instructions on it and built in miter stops, but I have yet to actually try it for fear of botching expensive molding. I think it only bevels/tilts in one direction though...to the right maybe?
Live a life worth celebrating!
