I have heard from some finish carpenters that there is a special angle for setting the miter and the bevel on the compound miter saw which makes the coping of inside and outside corners easier with crown molding. Does anyone know what this angle is?
I have to cope crown on a set of kitchen cabinets and I would rather not resort to wood filler or spend the next four hours sawing and filing to make things fit.

Here is a link to a spreadsheet that I wrote. It has several formulas for woodworking. One is a crown molding calculator. You can do any wall angle, any crown slope. There is also a worksheet for cutting the compound angles on a box that has dual slopes (front and back have different slope than ends). You will need Excel or Star Office to read this file.
