How in the world do you miter crown mouldings for corners????

You'll probably get ten different answers - here's one - for outside corners try a 31.6 deg angle and 34 deg bevel, on a miter saw, with the stock laid flat and face up. Make test cuts on any scrap (doesn't have to be moulding) to check the fit and adjust the angles as necessary. For inside corners, you need to cope them.
Place the molding on the miter saw upside down and so that it fits the saw fence and table like it would fit the wall and ceiling when it is installed. Then cut the approptiate angle.
Place the moulding on the miter saw upside down
from the wzy it goes on the ceiling and cut
thats for outside corners.
for inside corners place it the same way but then you cope out the miter after the cut.
