how to end crown molding at a inside corner???

11 years ago

I am installing large crown molding in my kitchen and one wall ends at the family room where it encounters a ceiling beam. I can butt the molding right up against the beam. Is it possible to cut it a few inches short and fashion a 'return' on the molding end? I haven't tried this yet but I know it can be down with regular molding. My question is, what is usually done in this instance? I don't think I ever see crown that just ends at a wall. Usually it continues along the new wall. I want to install what is considered the standard style for this situation but I'm not sure how to look it up. And if it should be a 'return,' how do I fashion it?
