Cove, The Un-Crown, Crown Moulding

Part of some work I've been doing for some friends was to drywall a plaster ceiling in a bathroom that wasn't looking so great. As part of this project we thought it might be nice to add some trim as well. To match the changing area just outside the bathroom I used a 1 3/4" cove trim.

Cove is not typically thought of as crown moulding. More often, it's used for inside corners with beadboard or paneling. For this small bathroom where a larger crown might be overkill, this seems to dress up the room just enough.

Just like other crown moulding, I coped the corners just like I would with normal crown moulding for a tight fit. First, I cut it upside-down at a 45 degree angle while holding the trim against the fence like the picture. Then I used the coping saw to cut along the front edge of the mitered cut, removing as much off the back as possible so it will fit snugly next to the adjacent piece.
