    Is he expecting you to cove the sloping bit of just the horizontal. You can either do a stop end, or shoot the cove in to the fall of the ceiling (which is what i'd do).

    Your coving isn't going to sit properly on that shallow angle for a start. You can do the sloping side to horizontal by bisecting the angle, no problem. The other joint can be done but it is a twat to do.

    That is not going to look good if you follow the ceiling line all the way around.Stopend as you hit the slope would be my favoured finish.

    I agree with the others- stop end it at the slope. I've never in my life seen it coved all the way down. And if he's bought poly stuff from b+q then tell him to hang it himself. You could stay warm in the cafe
