Crown Cutting Position for Splice
3.8 Splices are cut as scarf joints that
will overlap each other slightly. The back
of the molding lies fl at against the fence
of the miter saw with a cut angle of 22-1/2
Plan to lay the fi rst piece so that the open
face of the cut joint faces outward, allow-
ing the second piece to cover and form the
overlap of the scarf.
Prefi t the joint and confi rm that the splice
fi ts well without requiring a lot of tension
from the nails.
Remember to color the outermost edges
of the mating pieces prior to fi tting them for
the fi nal time.
Use glue when making up the splice and
try not to place nails closer than 2 inches
to the joint. A single nail over the splice is
permissible if necessary.
