I never installed crown moldings, but now my wife thinks the dining room
really need them.
The moldings is about 5" wide so I figure the edge will be some 3-3.5" from
the wall and the ceiling.
The wall must have a header so there may be some solid wood to nail but the
ceiling is probably just plaster board.
Where do the nails end up usually?
Is there some solid wood behind for the nails to bite, in the usual
Are small ringed nail in the plaster sufficient to hold the moldings firmly?
Do you suggest finishing nails or ringed nails?
Is the moldings nailed only on the studs?
The ceiling joists are a possible nailing spot but it works only for two
sides, the other two sides may have nothing running above.
Thanks for some hint on how is done.
