    Default Crown molding gap

    Try as I might, I end up with about a 16 th of an inch gap when installing inside corners on my crown molding. I cope cut the corners. Is that an acceptable margin of error, or am I doing something wrong? The corners look fine once I fill them with epoxy or caulk

    Your solution is the best you can do under the circumstances and 1/16" is not terribly bad.

    Understood and thanks. How many of you need to use caulk or some other filler to seal inside corner gaps in crown molding? Will adjusting the angle on the miter saw help close gaps when coping corner joints?

    Me.
    I suck at carpentry. I have done the same as you hanging crown moulding. I used colored wood putty though as all my crown moldings are natural wood. Don't feel bad.
