Try making the cut with the rear of the cornice against the rear of the miter box rather than the front as you would for cutting regular (not crown) molding. I hope you are not using a circular saw to cut polystyrene.

How do I miter with my radial arm saw (RA-2500). I can't tell from the manual.


the slide can be angled by the degree plate where the timber sits
the blade can be angled by the degree plate on the arm that mounts the saw
so you can get a 45 degree to the timber length and a 45 degree angle cut to that angle to give you a corner mitre cut

How do i cut floor trim with my stanley mitre box


To do the job right, you make a miter cut, then a coping cut. There is an excellent article on this at:
http://www.wikihow.com/Cut-a-Coped-Joint-in-Wood-Trim
Getting a nice-looking coped joint is very satisfying, but takes a bit of practice. But it's worth it. Miter joints are great for picture frames and trim on furniture, but not for trimming a room.
Good luck!

How to build a wooden pyramid frame for school children, 2metres on each length of base.


cut 4 pieces of 2x2 to1.5 inches short of 2 metres. lay them out end to end to form a two metre box. it can only work one way. then take string from corner to corner to find the center, making a crosshair. then stand a level rod at the centre to the desired height and fasten equal length lines from each corner to the peak. using a compound mitre saw, place an angle finder at the bottom and top corners to give you the angle to cut your piece with the saw set at 45 degrees, to give you your compound miter for the top. just set the saw blade to line up with the angle finder to get the bottom cut. the length of your "tight" string line frome corner to peak is your length of "hip" piece

What do i do to cut inside/outside corners for crown molding


It is very hard to make proper cuts with one of these.

You may want to buy a power miter saw.

You would be better off marking your 45 degree angle and cutting it freehand.

If you angle your saw a little the face will look like it matches up better.

If you need more help post a comment.

My mitre saw wont lift up into the cutting position it seems stuk


look on the left side of the saw just past the blade there is a knob there pull it out as you hang onto the handle of the saw ,the knob is spring loaded,plus the if you dont hold onto the handle the unit will come up very fast.possible of hurting you or the saw.
