    Yep, but I use a headless pin nailer instead of a brad nailer so there’s no holes ti fill and you don’t see any heads to a brad nail. They are thinner then brads but in the end the glue will dry and hold it secure, the pins just hold it in place while the glue dries. Also, I use a clamp on the base piece just to hold the other end of the crown since you can be working with long pieces and the sag on the other end can give you trouble when you tape up and your trim isn’t straight. It just acts like a 3rd hand at the other end supporting the trim while you are getting things level and in place to tape up.

    two things..

    you still got glue on the face of the cabinet while positioning the crown.

    and a note to the web designer. Move the video left or move the social media buttons somewhere else. Very annoying.

    1. excellent hint on the angled pieces on top of the cabinet…fought the “holding it down” thing a long time and will use those angled pieces. 2. when and if you get a bit of glue seeping out, I use a pinched plastic straw ( from Arbys, Burger King etc) and swipe the glue out… snip off the end and your good to go again.
