Custom Profile Shop

A (really) short history of moulding.

Early homes in America were, of course, completely handmade. Trim and moulding pieces were made at the construction site with hand held moulding planes and chisels. If you’re curious about what these may have looked like click here.

Milling machinery in Oregon came into play in the 1850’s and large mills were not in operation until years later.

Today’s mills use large industrial machines running large quantities of moulding, commonly 10,000 feet at a time. The moulding patterns, or profiles, are the most popular profiles based on sales. Some of these profiles are historic and based on traditional architectural shapes (ogee, cove and ovolo) and others are completely contemporary.

What does this mean to a historic home owner? The moulding you have in your home may be completely unique; if it is, and you need more, it will have to be custom made.
