Quick Measuring Formulas
Select molding style/pattern and grade (kind of wood) using our online search engine. With over 8,000 styles at last count, we probably have what your looking for. Search for moldings by type and size. Can't find a match? We do custom tooling.
Select Application Type: Radius Applications for full circles, half-circles, quarter-circles and arc eyebrows. Select Straight Applications for wall base, casing, crown, panel and chair rail. Custom Applications usually need special pre-forming and therefore usually require a template; they include oval, elliptical, dormer, true radius crown, irregular radius crown and irregular radius casing. Orientation specifies which edge of the molding style you want to face the outside/inside of the radius or top/bottom of the application.
Calculate Material Length: To calculate material length see your selected application for complete instructions.
Radius Calculator: This java powered page returns the radius from the width and rise of an arc segment.
Flexibility Range: The flexibility of the molding pattern depends upon several factors. Pattern size, shape, material type and application all determine the flexibility limits of a given pattern. With each application we provide a list of common flexibility ranges; be sure to check these.
Pre-form Limitations: The pre-forming of the molding pattern depends upon several factors also. Orientation of the pattern and applications determine the need for your order to be pre-formed. Remember that pre-forming guarantees a perfect fit. With each application we provide a list of pre-form limitations; be sure to check these.
