how to cut cover moulding for wall to vaulted ceiling

Using 3/4" x 3/4" cove moulding to attach to walls and vaulted ceiling angle. I built a two story three season room last year, tieing it into my bilevel house with walk out basement. No problem, but this is kicking my butt. and i have blurry vision to deal with. Somethings just don't look right. That said.
I have T&G white ash boards on walls and ceiling. The vaulted ceiling (top floor of course) has a 8 degree angle from a horizontal level rise. I trigged that out, by measuring 9"horizontally and then it was 1.25 inches to the ceiling boards.

How to cut the cove moulding to make a nice corner that matches, sort of like you would do for crown moulding, except this is just plain old 3/4 x 3/4 cove moulding. Do I need to set the angle on my power mitre saw to 45 degrees and then cut a bevel cut of x degrees so the insides match? Always been able to figure something out. Ugh.

Thanks for any ideas. greg

I may not fully understand this but....

If you have a horizontal molding, why can't you just cope the 8 degree inclined one to fit it? Nevermind trying to miter it.

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

Usually the easiest solution to trimming from a straight wall to a vaulted ceiling is to use a decorative corner block.
