Time to drag out the ancient Craftsman molding head set. Apparently a lot of people are afraid of these things. I can see why. If you use them with little thought and prep you’ll probably get a little kick back. I’m not going to dwell on the cutter too long. If you want more info see my other Instructable about it.

This is about making your own, cheap crown molding. My cost for 32 feet of crown molding was about half of what you pay for premade. And it’s unique so you have the added bonus of really making future owners of your house really mad because they can’t match it!

If you’re interested in getting a molding cutter you can find them on Ebay and there is a company that still makes them and loads of knives for them called Corob Cutters.
