There are crown and cove molding joints which are
made to fit "Inside" 90° corners ((1) and (2) in Fig.
A) and "Outside" 90° corners ((3) and (4) in Fig. A).

Measuring

Measure the wall length and adjust workpiece on
table to cut wall contact edge to desired length.
Always make sure that cut workpiece length at the
back of the workpiece is the same as wall length.
Adjust cut length for angle of cut. Always use several
pieces for test cuts to check the saw angles.
When cutting crown and cove moldings, set the
bevel angle and miter angle as indicated in the table
(A) and position the moldings on the top surface of
the saw base as indicated in the table (B).
