Casing & Baseboard
Most of these mouldings are carried in stock in Oak, maple and poplar, a great wood for painting. On special order we are able to manufacturer them in almost any type of wood, as long as we can get the wood.
SIZE: 3/4″ x 2 1/2″
– sold in random length bundles or individual 7′ pieces.
Application: A casing is typically used around doors and windows. Because doors are typically 7′ high, to reduce wastage and make sure you get enough 7′ legs for either side of your door, we can create “a set” that includes 2 pieces 7′ & 1 piece ~3′ or so to complete one side of one door… just need to give us a list of your door sizes and the knowledge of whether you need casing for one side, or BOTH sides.
For windows it is less important to get specific sizes because usually you need lots of different lengths and can cut to get the best yield as you trim out each window, starting with the largest and working towards the smallest pieces needed. Thus for windows, most clients buy bundles of random length casing 3′-12′.

– you usually design a baseboard to be somewhat higher than its matching casing and slightly thinner so that it backsets itself from the rounded edge of the casing where it meets at the bottom of the door frame.
