Topic tags/keywords: question finishing traditional

I saw this and wondered how they stacked laters of crown. Then did a medallion of another double or triple stacked? Did they use crown or a base molding? Just looks so elegant

I’ve learned allot about installing moldings from watching this guy's YouTube vids. He’s got a few on stacked crown.

Stacked crown is a simple blocking-out process. The pictured installation appears to be two pieces of the same crown profile stacked on top of each other.

To do it, you install fillers to create a place for the bottom piece to land and for the upper piece to attach, something like this:

Then, to make the “medallion” or “keystone”, simply add a spacer onto the wall for the crown to wrap around.

Personally I think a more historically correct built up boxed cornice with crown and bed mould looks a lot better than the same crown profile doubled up.

Have your say...
