Frank talked about his jig that he is auctioning off – crown moulding
Various wood jigs to cut the types of moulding (outside 45, inside 45, etc.)
Different angles, based on ceiling height
Use miter saw, move it to 45, and then leave it there. From that, you just use the jigs to cut it.
They are all labeled, 3 jigs
