I am looking for some pointers how to attach shaker crown molding and also what style works the best. If I use a plain, straight crown, do I just nail on the face (angled) area? If I do, I will be nailing through .75" of material. My local supplier doesn't stock shaker crown, so that is why I'm not very familiar with it. I will have to get it from a different supplier I suppose (Walzcraft, Westwind, etc.) Maybe someone has a supplier recommendation and also an installation solution that has worked well?
From contributor J:
I've made that flat style crown by cutting the 38/52 deg bevels just like making conventional crown. I surface to 5/8 thick or so, then cut my bevels front and back. You can nail it near the bottom in the flat portion.
Contributor E - the cabinets will be going to the ceiling, so that is not an option. Good idea though in the right circumstance.
Contributor A - that's amazing and very decorative! I'll have to keep something like that in mind for the future. That's a lot of miter saw work.
