Today I am going to show you how to make a 6" crown molding for about 1/5 the cost of production crown.  This is what is considered a "built-up crown", meaning that the crown is assembled from parts as opposed to being molded in a shaper as one piece.

Step 1: Gathering Materials

 The room we did this to already had a 2" cove molding at the ceiling.  That will become the center of the crown.
terrific guide....everyone else has said to glue it... I'm scared the glue will lose the stickiness and fall on peoples heads.
Back in the 1960's and 1970's Sears included a little booklet with their circular saw blades and molding cutters that showed end drawings of all sorts of molding configurations. Many of these were made up of individual parts glued up to make a much larger molding profile, much as you have done. Yours is a good idea done well. Thank you for a nice and useful Instructable.
