Cabinetman has proposed some creative solutions however it seems they are posing additional challenges. The use of one pendent block will look somewhat odd to to me. I believe the best solution is what I proposed in post #7. It is additional work but I believe will produce the best looking final product. It is your home so you should do what is acceptable for the effort you want to expend. Personally I would want the best appearing and most professional looking final product.

Thank you for the help i used the pendant idea to provide a landing for all three runs of crown to dissolve into. Looks pretty good. I will post a few pics once painted. For the top run i Ripped the piece of crown to follow the bottom straight edge of the kitchen ceiling filled the gap at the bottom with a mirror Rip of moulding. The moulding tapers to the corner yet maintains the lines of the trim all the way to the corner. looks much better than a flat piece of wood or a pound of spackling to fill the gap.

Personally, I'd go another direction entirely. Put a fake beam, or faux rafter edge against the vaulted part and you'd have something to end your crown against.

Another choice that might give you better options would be to use a smaller width of crown, then you'd have much less "problem" to solve.

I read an article several years ago about crowing a greatroom. The solution was a pretty complicated-looking cut where the crown "wrapped" around the angle. hard to describe, and I doubt it would work here anyway

Take C and run it into the corner, connecting to A like a regular inside corner would connect. On the backside of that joint, fill it in the triangle flush with some mdf. Then, have B butt right into the back of that piece, making sure the bottoms of the two crowns line up. This looks pretty good... It's a hard one I've done several different ways, but I think that looks best.

Bump again

This is literally the only post about this type of corner. I have it too. Does anyone have a picture of a good solution?
