Installing crown molding can be intimidating homeowners. For outside corners to match properly, you have to cut compound miters correctly. And if that wasn’t hard enough, inside corners should be coped, never mitered, as coping allows for slight movement of the wood and the cleanest overall fit.
The EasyCoper aims to simplify the difficult skill of coping, making it easy to create professional-looking joints without master-craftsman experience. All you need to know is how to follow a line with a jigsaw.
To use the EasyCoper, just cut the piece as if you’re cutting an inside miter and then cut the long point flat. Place the molding in the easy cutter jig until the piece is flush with the top of the jig. Then follow the profile of the molding with the jigsaw base resting flatly on the easycoper jig — and you’re done.
THe EasyCoper retails for about $35. If you’re putting up crown molding in more than one room, the time you save using EasyCoper should easily be worth the price.
