Product Description

Product Description

Crown Molding Cutting Jig - CROWN MOLDING CUTTING JIG. Produces perfect fitting miters every time. Crown stop quickly adjusts to lock molding. Fits all 10" & larger miter saws

Amazon.com

There’s no denying that nearly everyone loves crown molding, but cutting the molding is no picnic—even for some pros. That’s because crown molding gets installed at an angle against the wall and ceiling, and precise cuts are required to obtain tight-fitting corner joints. Complicating the situation is the fact that crown molding is expensive; it only takes two or three miscuts to blow your budget. But don’t despair you can end the trepidation and frustration with the Bench Dog 10-010 Crown-Cut Jig. This surprisingly simple device provides a quick, foolproof way to cut crown molding, even for novice do-it-yourselfers.

Crown-Cut is designed to work with any 10-inch or larger power miter saw, and it’ll accommodate crown moldings up to 6 inches wide. The jig is made of Baltic birch plywood and it plastic stops and steel tabs that adjust to match the molding’s height and distance it projects from the wall.

To use the jig, simply set it onto the saw table and adjust it to match the molding size. Then place the molding into the jig and it’ll automatically be held at the proper wall angle. Set the saw blade to 45 degrees, and make the cut. This method is much easier than holding the molding flat on the table and setting the saw for a compound angle cut, which requires figuring out both bevel and miter angles. -- Joseph Truini

I highly recommend this item for the novice handyman.

The Bench-Dog Crown Cut Molding jig does a GREAT job explaining the whole "cutting opposite" technique used to cut crown molding.

The hardest part was remembering to put the crown in the jig upside down, I recommend this to anyone intalling crown molding.

This is a nice jig for just about any miter saw. It's made of materials that have been proven durable over time. It's fully adjustable, both for width of crown from wall and for hight from ceiling to bottom of crown. The width adjustment is a plastic crown stop with 2 solidly anchoring screws attached through slots in the bottom of the jig. The hight adjustment is steel extension tabs that slide up from the back fence. This is a fine set-up for dual compound saws, BUT, the motor on a standard compound (or non-compound) mitersaw will contact the back fence when you use the jig on the right side of the blade. This is not a problem if you can make all of your miter/coping cuts on the left side of the blade. The upside down method of cutting crown can get confusing if you're mitering in both directions anyway.

If you would prefer to use the full capacity of your saw though,,, buy the crown stops that the manufacturer of your saw offers. The manufacturer of your saw probably offers crown stops that let you use the full capacity of your saw. The Bench Dog takes away 3/4 inch wide and 3/4 inch high, just like a homemade version would. On a 10 inch miter saw this can be a problem when cutting wide crown molding. Although, you can make a home made version that leaves the capacity at original specification.

ONE LAST THOUGHT, FASTEN THIS DOWN TO YOUR SAW!!!!! Keep your fingers a little while longer and make your cuts more accurate. Leaving this jig loose could lead to cumulative error. Sawdust can get under it, the angle could be affected by the way you have the material supported, etc. The fence is probably the best place to attach, just put a couple of short screws right through the back of the fence and into the jig.

If you are a novice attempting to cut crown molding, this jig is for you. The Bench-Dog Crown Cut Molding jig does a GREAT job explaining the whole "cutting opposite" technique used to cut crown molding. The best part of the jig is the detailed pictures on the jig itself. There is no need for instructions, although they are very helpful as well. One can make a similar jig on their miter saw using wood and some glue (I tried it, I couldn't get it right), however this jig made it very simple and fast to cut crown molding. A must have for the do-it-yourselfer. Word advice though, before you cut your expensive crown molding experiment with an extra piece (or cheap piece) of crown molding to get the hang of it first.

I've used Crown Cut to cut crown molding for 12 rooms and it takes all of the confusion and guess work out of making inside and outside corner cuts. No need to set up special benches, crown stops, setting the bevel angle and trying to figure out the upside down and backward cutting. You don't even need a compound miter saw. There are only 2 steps to cut perfect inside right/left and outside right/left corners. The best part is, the steps are listed right on the Crown Cut jig. For a Do-It-Yourselfer, it will make your crown project less confusing and frustrating. Even my wife was amazed how fast the rooms were done and how much better the crown made the rooms look. To summarize, no headaches, fast great looking results and you will be proud to say I did it myself.

I consider myself a pretty experienced woodworker, but when it came to cutting and installing crown moulding it was a challenge. I reviewed several home made type of jigs, but they seemed cumbersome and involved. In my internet search I came across this jig on Amazon and decided to give it a try. I was a bit sceptical at first, but after several joints I was sold. The more I used it, the easier it became to visualize and cut the different mitres. I had inside 45's, outside 45's, inside 22.5's and outside 22.5's all handled easily. If not for the poor construction and wall angles in my home, the job would have been completed in no time. This is truly a time saver and well worth the $30 investment.

I've read that this jig didn't work for everyone, although I have to say that mine work beautifully with my 10' sliding compound miter saw, I don't know how it would work with a regular saw, but I've got to say that with a sliding miter saw works really good, I do home remodeling as a way of make a living & when I was asked by a costumer if I could do some crown molding, I was hesitant at first I was about to turn down that offer when I found this jig so I decided to give it a shot, oh my god, this thing made doing crown molding such a breeze, there's no easiest way believe me, now I do crown molding on a regular basis & with this jig it takes no time at all...

I was reluctant to use this as I figured how hard can it be. I am hear to tell you that this product has made cutting crown much easier. I have never done it before and I tried cutting crown without it but in the matter of 1 hour I had 2 corners done and they are as close to perfect as you can get. I will have to do a little "patch work" but minimal compared to what I was looking at without it. The only problem I have is the fact that I have a 10" Compound Miter Saw and this product reduces the cutting capacity so the largest molding I can do is about 3 5/8". For larger crown I am going to have to buy a new Miter Saw (darn) and use this tool to do the holding. I recommend this product to anyone that has limited experience cutting crown as well as those who need to do a lot.
