Product Description

From the Manufacturer

Set-up guides are mounted to the tool for error-free operation.

Be sure to load the moulding upside down. The fence risers should extend to the top of the moulding, just enough to support it. Both mating surfaces on the moulding should fit as closely to the tool as possible. Tighten all screws, knobs, and bolts before use. Store the risers in the down position when not needed for larger moulding.

Crown/Cove Cutting Jig

Cutting crown molding doesn't have to be difficult. Crown-Cut eliminates the complication of cutting crown and cove molding, giving you perfect miters, every time. What's the secret? Crown-Cut holds the molding at its intended angle while you cut it. No more compound cuts and tedious trial and error. Before Crown-Cut, miscalculated compound cuts produced sloppy miters that screamed for caulk and paint. Even if you're using the coping method for inside miters, Crown-Cut will prove useful for the initial cuts. For a professional looking job, cut your crown and cove the easy way.

User Instructions

With Crown-Cut you must use the "upside down and backwards" cutting method. This means you always cut the moulding upside down. To understand why we cut the moulding upside down, it may help to visualize the miter saw table as the ceiling, and the the miter saw fence as the wall. In other words, imagine that it's the saw that is upside down, not the moulding. Why it's also called "backwards" is because the left piece on the wall is the right piece on the saw, and the right piece on the wall is the left piece on the saw. This makes sense because you're cutting the moulding upside down. In other words, left is right, and right is left. Be sure to always cut the moulding upside down and follow the cutting guides on the tool.

Please consult the many DIY books and articles on installing moulding, as this is beyond the scope of the Crown-Cut owner's manual. Also, be sure to check our website for new information about this tool. We can tell you from experience that most mistakes happen from incorrect cuts or incorrect measuring. Crown-Cut is your solution for incorrect cuts. You are the solution for incorrect measuring. Measuring twice and cutting once is always good advice. For more accurate results, use the help of another person when measuring your moulding lengths.

Four Basic Cuts

There are four basic cuts you will make with Crown-Cut: INISIDE CORNERS (90 degree), OUTSIDE CORNERS (90 degree), LEFT OVER RIGHT SPLICE JOINTS, and RIGHT OVER LEFT SPLICE JOINTS. Splice joints don't always fit perfectly because of differences in your moulding's profile. Staging the overlap of the splice joint to fit your room will help hide the differences. A good rule of thumb to follow is this: if you entered the room and could see the splice joint to your right, use the right over leftsplice joint. If you entered the room and could see the splice joint to your left, use the left over right splice joint. If your walls are out of square, adjust the angle accordingly. Be sure to test fit using scrap pieces of moulding. Before cutting, read the Safety Rules.

Read These Safety Rules Before Cutting:

  1. Keep hands at least 4 inches from saw blade at all times.
  2. Always cut the moulding upside down.
  3. Always position Crown-Cut on the miter saw so the tool clears the blade path by at least 1/2 an inch.
  4. Hold tool and moulding securely against miter saw fence.
  5. Allow the blade to come to a complete stop before lifting the blade and removing the moulding.
  6. Provide adequate support for long pieces of moulding.
  7. Don't cut or recut pieces shorter than 7 inches.
  8. Never cut cross-handed.
  9. Always wear safety glasses and ear protection.
  10. Don't wear loose fitting apparel.
  11. Be sure saw blade is sharp and properly installed.
  12. Avoid cutting nails and knots.
  13. Read and follow your saw's owner's manual and safety warnings before using this tool.
  14. Don't remove cut-off pieces before the blade has stopped.
  15. Childproof your workshop with locks and master switches.
  16. Disconnect power before servicing or changing blade.
  17. Always keep the blade guard in its factory condition.
  18. Only use cross cut finishing type miter saw blades.

I used this jig for the first time last month to successfully install crown molding in two rooms. This was also my first time installing crown molding so the concept of cutting everything upside down took some time to get used to, but once I got it, the cuts came quickly. The jig obviously cannot compensate for an incorrect measurement or a poor cut, but it was helpful in guiding the user to determine the correct side of the blade to place the molding, showing the direction of the cut, and keeping the crown held securely at the correct angle from the base to the back of the fixture.

The plastic is very durable (dropped it several times on concrete without incident) and the clamp with two plastic wing nuts can be tightened to keep the molding firmly in place. I would have liked to have some rubber coating on the bottom of the fixture to reduce slight scraping of the table but mainly to stop the jig from sliding on the table once in position. It would also be nice if the jig had a built in clamp so it could be secured to the back fence or the table without interfering with the cut.

I would definitely recommend this fixture instead of buying crown stops that are usually specific to your miter saw and may not hold crown molding as well as this jig.

The Bench Dog Crown Molding Cutting Jig is a helpful product within limits, but I found that it wasn't completely satisfactory for what I needed. Here is why:
- The body of the jig raises the molding up above the saw table. This makes it much harder to keep a long piece of molding perfectly straight for cutting.
- The thickness of the bottom of the jig also made it very difficult to use with medium sized (4-3/8) moldings on my 10 inch saw. The molding kept scraping the bottom of the blade while I adjusted it into position.
- Using this device meant trying to keep one extra thing straight. It is easy to get the molding straight in the jig, but then it becomes annoying to make sure the jig is straight on the saw table.
- The jig is useless for short (under about 12") pieces.

On the good side:
- The clear instructions on the face of the jig help prevent those really stupid mistakes that everyone does with crown.
- For moderate length and moderate sized material it is quite helpful.
- If the user has a chop saw that isn't compound, a tool like this is great.

This thing is brilliant - best $30 I ever spent. I had been dreading the job of crown molding on the kitchen cabinets I had just installed after looking through all the how to's....figuring out angles, glueing guides to arm saw, etc. etc. etc. I had little confidence that I was going to be able to do the quality work that the rest of the installation had warranted.
I'm not even sure how I came across this thing but what I thought was going to be a weekend (at least) and lots of thinking and measuring 15 times, turned into a few hours without 1 error or "miss".
I can't compare it to any of the other products like this, but it worked great for the standard ceiling/kitchen molding I was using.
If you're a DIY'er thinking about doing crown molding, don't even think twice about this purchase, you won't be sorry.

I picked this up for doing crown molding on wood cabinets and it works great. Inside and outside miters come out perfect for molding that can't be painted. Everyone who has seen my cabinets wants to know how I got such perfect cuts that didn't need to be filled. The other secrets are quality fine tooth blade and slow cutting to avoid any tear-out.

So far I've cut up to 6" molding on my 12" miter saw with no issues. For the guy who had issues with 5" molding on his 10" saw, it's not the jig's fault.

It is a nice jig although I would prefer it heavier and have a larger base. It works good on 4-5" molding but anyting larger it feels a bit small.It is durable as it has fallen off the table a couple of times without cracking. It does hold the molding quite well on the fence. Bench Dog makes a good product. I also have the Crown 45 and use it for certain applications but the Bench Dog I think is a better product.

This jig, when used with the True Angle Tool, makes cutting compound miter joints perfect. You won't regret purchasing this jig, if you have crown molding to install. Purchased on Amazon and it was received as indicated, well packaged and not damaged.

Worth the money - it's easy to use and reminds you how to use it. I use it infrequently so it's nice to have the directions directly on the jig itself.

This tool worked great for me. I'm a competent do-it-yourselfer, but didn't like crown moulding because of the hassle of using a compound miter saw and screwing up the angles. This tool and a borrowed nail gun made the job a snap. The pictures made it easy to make sure I was making the right cut and the box was easy to position to place the cut in exactly the right place. No problem cutting on both sides with my mitre saw
