Rockler Coping ToolDo a Google search of “Crown Moulding” and you will be amazed what advice people give for coping crown moulding. I have yet to try my hand at it, but I will be shortly. When I do, I may give the EasyCoper a try. . . especially if free-handing it with a coping saw fails miserably. The EasyCoper lets you use a jig saw at just the right angle to get those perfect crown moulding joints we all dream of. So why use a mere tool like a coping saw when you can use a power tool instead? Available from for about $35 a pair.

About Marc Lyman

Marc grew up under a brave single mom who "encouraged" home improvement on the family home. Early toddler gifts included a tool set, and even a cordless Bosch drill when cordless drills first came out. In grade school (give or take a few years), Marc's mom said, "We need to cut down some trees. . . . here's a chainsaw." A father figure also involved Marc in many home improvement projects, including a summer of home remodeling in Palo Alto, CA. Toss in some Obsessive Compulsive personality traits researching everything home improvement related. The end result: a genetically pre-disposed, socially sculpted home improvement machine! For his complete profile, please visit our About page. Really, it's worth it.

  1. I have purchased several tools “toys” to aid in crown molding slicing, dicing and installation. The EasyCoper is very cool. The hard plastic form holds your jig saw at the proper backcut angle and your inside corner joints are perfect. I’m talking about “stained” joints coming out perfect, not painted joints filled with caulk where a bad cut is hidden. You will be pleased with this!
