Chair Rail and Picture Moulding!

So I have been thinking about doing moulding in our home since the day we moved in. I am scared to death of it. I have this big fancy saw that cuts like a dream. I have used it a lot for quarter round and I always seem to come up short. I guess what I need is some practice. I have searched for some ideas and here's what I came up with:

Chair rail height is supposed to be approximately 1/3 of the wall, between 32 and 36 inches. I'm sure it isn't that big of a deal. As long as the lines are straight the boxes are even it will look great!  I believe this is the simplest way to add dimension, interest and luxury to any room. Crown moulding is a little trickier, it is installed at an angle and cut at an angle. This is something I need professional help with!
Stay tuned, I will go through the whole process!
