crown molding (and baseboards) is an acquired skill set.
learned and developed over time through practice.
the way I learned was to make short pieces of different sizes and styles of trim.
only make 12" pieces at time.
yes, you will use up material. in a lot of woodworking skills, the tuition is not free.
photos of the crown you are using may help with more accurate responses.
what kind of saw will you be using ??
(again - I have never used a circular saw to cut crown - nor do I intend to).
looking forward to following your project (with photos).
there is no educational alternative to having a front row seat in the School of Hard Knocks.
