"Over the years I have completed most of my home projects on my own. I have always had problems with crown molding and, generally speaking, wasted more material (and caulk) than it was worth. Any time I had crown molding to do I would hire someone to put it in, which is not cheap.
"I bought a new house in 2006 and my wife wanted to put up crown molding. After much deliberation I decided I was going to do it this time. I got books, checked out magazines, and read articles on the Internet, but it was still very confusing to me. I went back out on the Internet to see if there was something there I missed. That's when I found the Cut-N-Crown System.
"I watched the videos a few times and thought it couldn't be true. I told my wife about it and I decided to buy the 45° jig. I figured, for the price, I couldn't go wrong.
"The day it arrived; I was very excited to try it out. I set up my saw, read the directions (which are super easy to follow), and started on my quest!
"What a dream come true! My work looks professional using the Cut-N-Crown System and the ease of using this tool is unbelievable. I just love working on crown molding now. However, I did run into a problem: I have many 22° angles in my home and I had no idea how to cut my molding to accommodate them. I decided to e-mail customer service. What a response!
"They got back to me within a few hours of my e-mail.
"They explained how to set up my saw using the jig. When I still had problems I wrote them a second time. They went through the cut step-by-step, explaining to me how to do it. They asked me questions to make sure I was getting the correct angle. With their instruction, I made the cuts and it looks great!
"I want to thank everyone at Cut-N-Crown for a great product. But even more than that, what a great customer service team! Their follow-up to make sure I understood this project was great.
"I have been raving about this product to family and friends and know they will be purchasing very soon.
"Thank you again for a great product that does exactly what it's designed to do. And more importantly, thanks for having such a great customer service department."

"I am a homeowner and recently ordered your Cut-N-Crown jig and instructional video. I have just completed installing 560 feet of 4 5/8" crown in my new home, and that includes entry/dining room/kitchen/great room/3 bedrooms and 2 baths. Besides the normal 90° corners, I needed to accommodate 45° corners, splices and bullnose corners. The only error in the entire job was when I accidentally cut a left outside when I needed a left inside. All other joints were absolutely correct.
"The ease of use of the jig was amazing. I have installed crown molding in two previous homes using every method from "upside down and backward" to the "compound miter/bevel adjustment" technique. Nothing compares to the Cut-N-Crown System.
"It was totally reassuring knowing that all the cuts were right. Any joint that needed some "TLC" was from the uneven ceiling and walls. These are somewhat expected, but I never had to worry about or double check the miter cuts.
"Thanks for your very simple and great performing product."
- Bob Munroe, Ocala, Florida
"These things work great. After years as a union carpenter, then later owning a finish business and a cabinet shop, I have to say, Where were you 20 years ago? The only thing I did was make a few extra copies of the diagrams and placed one on the front rack (as well as the back rack) to insure I didn't screw up. Nice cuts. Great tips also. A great product."
- Jay Mahn
"Just wanted to let you know I received the Cut-N-Crown System, used it on my project, and was thoroughly impressed. I have never used crown molding before in my life, as it presented a daunting challenge I was not prepared to tackle. This ingenious little jig sure made life easy. I have no idea what I was so scared of. The only trouble I had was with the size of the jig and the 5" crown molding (my cut-off saw didn't have enough deck for the length, but it does now). I sure was impressed."
- Terry Wall, Safford, AZ
"I definitely believe your company makes the installation of crown molding possible for the do-it-yourselfer. We put crown molding in 4 rooms plus kitchen cabinets. We had tried using other cutting methods before the Cut-N-Crown System and made no progress. I found your company accidentally on the Web. I sent for the jig and hoped it was as good as your site said it was. It was even better. Our home looks gorgeous and we have the Cut-N-Crown System to thank for it."
- Margaret Bambury
"I just got done watching your DVD. I was a little, no, very uncertain about your product because I did not see you put one piece of crown molding on the wall. It was all put together at your finger tips. My boss handed me your instructional DVD, and I watched the whole thing. I thought, here we go again, another toy that he found somewhere that just won't do the job. Well let me tell you I was totally wrong. Did you hear that world, I WAS WRONG! Sheldon, I will never do crown molding again without your jigs. It speeds the job so much I could not believe how much crown molding we hung in one day. We all just looked at each other and said, you know we really hung a lot of molding on the walls today. We never would be able to do that much the otld up side down and backwards way. Never again. I will most definitely tell everyone that I know about the Cut-N-Crown System. Why? Because it just plain works."

"Where have you been all of my life? I must tell you that I ordered your product with some trepidation. I've been a do-it-yourselfer for years and have mastered almost everything except for crown molding. I can do it, but what a pain. I wasted more time and more materials then I used. So I bought your product. WOW! I tried it last night and actually had to take the day off from work today just so I could continue to do more molding. I'm having so much fun that I have been back to Home Depot three times today to pick up more molding. This is one of the first purchases I have made that actually does what it said it would. Makes crown molding installation effortless! Thanks for the great product."
- Mike Fingerhut
"Just wanted to let you know that after the show we went to 84 Lumber and bought the crown molding for the one bedroom to test it out to see how easy the cuts really are - and you were right! We measured twice and cut once and the molding fits perfect! The rest of the house will have crown molding, now we know firsthand how easy it is to make the perfect cuts in no time. Thanks for adding value to our house!"
- Karen Kenny - Fayetteville, NY
"I have been a finish carpenter for nineteen years and I have to admit the thought of changing my method of cutting crown molding was not appealing at all. But once I was finally convinced to try your tool, I could not believe the ease and speed with which I could achieve perfect cuts! Thank you Cut-N-Crown, like other cool tools I use, one more difficult task is now easy and your right I won't ever do crown molding without it."
- Rick from California
"I'm no carpenter, but my wife and I took on the job of doing our own refinishing and trim work in the new house we were building. I had many sleepless nights as to how I would accomplish the cuts of our crown molding. Purchasing the Cut-N-Crown System was the smartest thing I ever did. The instructions were simple and it makes great cuts every time. The molding went up beautifully. Our contractor was extremely impressed - he wanted to know how I had accomplished it. I can't say enough about the Cut-N-Crown System. It made the job simple and it looked professional. I would recommend this tool to anyone that is about to tackle a crown molding job - amateur and professional alike. Thanks for the perfect jig."

"The four picture instructions eliminate charts and prevent me from having to think upside down and backwards. The Cut-N-Crown System is simplicity at its finest! As far as doing woodworking projects goes, I say the easier the better and this is too easy!"
"I have had crown molding taking up space in my garage for over a year now. After seeing your demonstration at the woodworking show I purchased a set. I not only installed all the molding in my garage but I am doing the whole house. The Cut-N-Crown System is a life saver!"
- Dave Rawlings
I wanted to do crown molding in my house for a long time. I could not afford to hire someone to do it, it was too much money. I saw your demo and it seemed to be easy enough. After I was finished I realized you were right - crown molding can be easy and looks great! Follow the four pictures on the back and you won't go wrong. This tool is ingenious."
- Mark Nelson, Northern California
"The Cut-N-Crown System has taken all of the guesswork out of cutting molding and trim. It takes me 2/3 less time to measure and cut and mistakes are virtually eliminated. That such a simple but ingenious tool could save me this much time and money on a job is astounding! Thank you Cut-N-Crown."
- Michael Givson - Home Repair Services, Grand Rapids MI
Your Cut-N-Crown System has the easiest jig on the market for cutting crown molding. It is simple to understand, use and train with. It now takes me less than 1/3 the time to cut perfect miters and always produces an accurate angle. One of the best design elements of your product is having the self-explaining instruction diagrams on the jig itself. No finish carpenter should be without your product. It should be an essential in their tool box along side their miter saw. It makes me money because of the time saved and materials that aren't wasted on every job. Thank you for making my job easier!
- Joe DeVincent - Batavia, Illinois
"I purchased the Cut-N-Crown System at a wood working show on Friday 2/11/05. On Saturday 2/12/05 I installed 212 feet which had 13 corners and completed the project in 5 hours with no mistakes!"
- Keith March - Missouri
"I have done a lot of molding projects for years. It is enjoyable to see what value is added when molding is added to a home. I purchased the Cut-N-Crown System at a wood show in early 2005. I have done a lot of trim and molding over the years but nothing has been so easy to use as the Cut-N-Crown System. The directions are easy and fool proof. Even when I ran into a very unusual set of corners I emailed and called Sheldon, and the very same day they were able to answer my question. It works, and works great! I will never do a molding project again without the Cut-N-Crown System. The customer service is icing on the cake. Who says you can't have your cake and eat it too! Thanks to Sheldon and Paige! You can't go wrong - get the Cut-N-Crown System today! You will be looking for ways to use it!"
"I went to the Detroit show and I bought the Cut-N-Crown System and the new DVD for a project starting in January. As with most people, I approached crown molding with caution. The demo you put on made it look pretty easy, but people like you at the shows always do. I left the show with a real desire to get started and I had several questions I would've liked to have asked you, but it was not possible at the show. When I watched the DVD, you covered everything anyone could want to know. I'd have to say, that was one of the best woodworking DVD's I've ever seen. I can't wait to get started. Thanks for the great products."
- David Rutherford, Ohio
"Thanks, I did receive the package and just wanted to tell you that it worked great! I was able to install crown molding in my kitchen in one day. You have sold me on this product. Thanks."
"Saw you at the Orange County, CA show. What a product. Wish I hadn't spent $600 on my compound sliding miter saw. My buddy was with me and called me over to your demo. I purchased the jigs less than three weeks ago and have already done three jobs that I've been putting off for months. Including that cool mirror frame I've always wanted."
"It would be inappropriate to describe the Cut-N-Crown System as a jig or woodworking tool. In the finest tradition of Prozac, Valium and Thorazine it is a superb psychotropic aid for the frustrated craftsman or hobbyist. After chewing through a length of expensive crown molding trying to figure out a complicated cut, I stopped my project and ordered the Cut-N-Crown System. In the time it took me to waste valuable crown molding, I finished my entire family and recreation rooms with Cut-N-Crown's foolproof setup."
