Bench Dog® Crown-Cut

Item #
88% of 100

Cutting crown molding doesn't have to be difficult! Crown-Cut eliminates the complication of cutting crown and cove molding, giving you perfect miters, every time. What's the secret? Crown-Cut holds the molding at its intended angle while you cut it. No more compound cuts and tedious trial and error! Before Crown-Cut, miscalculated compound cuts produced sloppy miters that screamed for caulk and paint. Even if you're using the coping method for inside miters, Crown-Cut will prove useful for the initial cuts. For a professional looking job, cut your crown and cove the easy way!

  • The safest and easiest way to cut crown and cove molding
  • Fits all 10" and larger miter saws, regular or sliding
  • Exclusive fence risers adjust to fit crown and cove molding up to 6" wide
  • Integral setup guide prevents costly miscuts
  • Completely portable. Does NOT need to be attached to your miter saw

Craig M on May 10, 2019
All the reviews were good and it looks easy to use. A similar item I was looking at in the big box store had poor reviews as it didn't work with most miter saws, this unit looks like it will fit under my ten inch miter fine.

Only do this occasionally and it will eliminate the confusion of how to cut the crown miters correctly the first time.

what keeps the bench-dog-crown in place on the bed of the miter saw?

Thank you

Ron D on Nov 7, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Firm pressure from your other hand
Would anyone know the height of the back wall on this jig? My 10" sliding miter only has 3-1/2" clearance from table to bottom of sliding rails.
RJreviewer on Jul 30, 2017
BEST ANSWER: 3-7/8 "
How thick is the bed of this device? I'm thinking of getting 2 in lieu of crown stops...
Loren L on Apr 29, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Why, just move it from one side to the other?
Do you have to have a 10 inch miter saw? I have an 8.5 inch one.
George P on Aug 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have a 12 inch miter saw and do know that it'll work fine in the 10 inch, but I'm not totally sure if it works on an 8.5. The base support should be okay but I'm not sure about the back support.
Whats the tallest crown molding can be cut with this jig?
Danny H on Aug 27, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The biggest it can handle is up to about 5 inch which is most of your standard crown moulding. Anything larger will be bigger than the jig. Larger crown should be cut on the flat with both the angle and the bevel cut for a more accurate fit which you can find a tutorial on you tube and get the hang of it in about 20 mins. It is a great jig for the smaller stuff
with the bench dog crown cut will I need to cope my corners?
rick e on Jan 23, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This jig will hold your crown at the proper angle like it would fit on the ceiling. You need to measure the angle of the corner and adjust your miter saw to half that angle to get a perfect fit each time.
Can a hand saw be used with the Bench Dog Crown Cut?
Bill G on Dec 7, 2019
BEST ANSWER: No. It's designed for use with a power miter saw.
will this work with small 7- 1/4 miter saw?
JEFFERY S on Apr 29, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I did my project using a 12" miter saw, however the specifications state that it is for use with a 10" or larger miter saw.
Will this jig work with 6" crown on a 10" saw?
Tom C on Jan 27, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The crown i used was 3.5 inches, but the table and back are adjustable so i dont see why it wouldnt work.
will This tool work with Dewalt miter saw DW780?
Fred76@ on Feb 11, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I do not have a DeWalt miter box , it worked on my Makita
