    Any chippies/kitchen fitters got any tips or advice on the best way to cut cornice (the deep projecting kind), with a compound mitre saw?

    Make yourself a little jig up so that it holds it at the angle it will be fitted at and it will be a damn site easier to cut

    I had a sneaking suspicion that might come up.

    BTW. I assume you need to cut it "upside-down" to avoid chipping the laminate.

    measure the height of the cornice, less the rear protrusion(bit where the screws go through)... then cut some scrap timber to this dimension, then attach to the cornice on the protrusion so that it stands square when you turn it upside down... mark and cut as required, keeping on adding scrap timber for each cut... you should find the cornice stays stable when cutting, and being inverted it cuts a nice clean edge(unless your saws knackered of course) hope this helps
