Normally, the compound miter saws are set to the angles required for crown molding. If the angles are not already set, turn the miter saw counter-clockwise and set the miter angle to 31.6 degrees and the bevel angle to 33.9 degrees to cut the left inside and right outside corners of the molding.

Position the molding flat and face-up on a saw table with its top edge against the fence of the saw. Push the molding towards the blade's right side and cut while holding the molding in place with one hand to cut the right outside corner. Then, push the molding to the blade's left side and cut in a similar fashion to cut the left inside corner.

Turn the miter saw clockwise and set the miter and bevel angles to the same degrees to cut the right inside and left outside corners of the molding. Again, place the molding flat and face-up on the saw table, but with its bottom edge against the fence of the saw. Push the molding to the blade's right side to cut the left outside corner and then to its left side to cut the right inside corner, and cut as before.
