Crown molding is hard to cut just right to have a nice appearance.
Quarter round from the modern day is small and not appropriate for a historic home. Pictured here is original in the hallway on the left. Modern is shown next to the original. To the right of this is a long dowel that was used to recreate the original look. It had to be cut in half and fitted.
Measuring and placing the new quarter round.
Each corner for the quarter round was cut to match the corner board point. This point was restored from the old blue house.
One of the most difficult parts of putting up the crown molding was this point. All the other corners were in while this one was out. It was one of the final parts of finishing the job.
Below is the original restoration. This shows no crown molding and no quarter round trim. On the bottom is the finished job complete with a brand new ceiling fan with a new light kit.
