Steve, it's really pretty easy to make single profile mouldings. If you go to my thread "making raised panels - hand tools" in the hand tool section I show a simple ogge made with a Stanly 45. This thread has really gone off into left field though so this part of the discussion should probably be moved elsewhere? Don't want to be on the hijacker list :)

Depends on whether you have anything else to do.

Thankyou but I can't. I'm on dial-up internet and I have a hard time getting PDF files. Video is out of the question.

This discussion is hardly off topic. A person could custom make blades for one of these hand plane molders and make the molding this guy is needing. He didn't say if he was needing a thousand feet or one piece.

I suggest that you check out Dykes Lumber. They have a huge molding inventory and a PDF file online of the molding profiles. Since you are doing doors and windows, the pieces don't have to be very long and they could probably ship UPS.

I have no idea what this is. Should I? You talkin' 'bout me Willis?

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

I got it. You draw the design of the profile on the end of the board you are running, (should have had a comma) then keep running the profile raising the blade in steps until you get to the line drawn. He had almost as much trouble with punctuation as I do. I think he sends messages mostly from his phone. I couldn't do that at all.

Do you have anyone nearby who sells parts from demolished buildings? We have such suppliers in our area that have a huge assortment of just about anything you may need- mouldings, floor boards, windows, hardware, etc. Very useful when renovating or just maintaining an old house.

Most,if not all...millshops here charge an hour @ regular "shoprate" for setting up a moulder.Then you work out a per foot price.So the customer simply does the math....and decides for themselves if thats the approach they want to take.
That seems to be the case here too. But needing about 200 LF that may be a bit too pricey for my taste, especially if i can work something up myself...saving some money and having fun doing it...that might be my route. I'll have to read back through this thread...lots of good ideas.

Good idea, I think we do. I think someone told me once the city has a building where they sells off salvaged materials from old homes that get torn down.

What suppliers Homeboy and Louz?
The sketch you drew is a Brosco 8465 1-3/4" band molding often referred to as clapboard molding.
Thanks. I checked them guys but also 3 local lumberyards. But I guess i need to check them again since they probably dont keep their catalogs updated. Lowes had the picture frame molding i needed but was more expensive than then lumber yard. Everyone always says the lumber yards are more expensive, but I seem to find that opposite. Lowes and HD are usually more expensive.


Thanks for all the info!

Well...attempt #1 was getting the freud bit (99-480) a whirl and it's not close enough to the profile i'm trying to get. The rounded part is too exagerated and the chamfer part is too small, and overall it's just too large. I think i'm gonna have someone custom make it for me. I was considering buying a planer/molder, especially cause i "need" a planer, but I dont think i can justify that kind of cost. Thanks again for all the feedback.

I actually looked that that bit a while back as the closest i could find to match but thought maybe that curve profile on the end might cut too deep and just not get the same look. But i looked more today and maybe it could be an alternative if the lumber yard is too costly.


+3, but more of a Huuuuuuh? I'm lost on that one, but i do appreciate the input!
if you know anyone near you, that has a Woodmaster planer and molder machine. you can send a small piece of the molding you need to the company " Woodmaster " and they will make you the knives for about 25.00 on inch. if you need enough molding to support paying for the knives. the Woodmaster planer and molder will reproduce any kind of molding. I have had one for close to 20 years and they are great for reproducing old moldings.

Have you checked the insides of your closets to see if they used the same profile on door trims? I've saved a lot of headaches robbing the trim from inside a closet then replacing with something available.
