Crown work around column detail

Typical square miter joint with rope
Here’s a close-up of a typical crown miter, in good lighting.
Close-up of stained cabinet crown “dying” into the wall. A good, tight fit is very important in creating the look of quality. Many installers just cut these ends square and hope they’ll fit well, but often irregularities in the wall cause a gap to be left at the top or bottom. That’s why I measure and custom-cut all such ends.
Multi-part 270-degree crown return
These custom columns were designed to cover the 3-4″ diameter metal columns in this basement.
Here I’m joining together wood slabs to form the columns. This particular column was for a wall end, but the columns that were to cover the metal posts would be constructed the same way, except with four slabs.
In this shot, you can see two of the metal posts which would be clad in wood columns. One is running along the right edge of image.
