Visual Dictionary of Wood Moldings : The Center Lumber Collection of 2, 500 Working Patterns
Wooden moldings put the personality and finishing touch on houses and interiors.
Moldings bridge seams between floor, wall, and window.
Their profiles -- deft combinations of edges, fiats, and curves -- make eye-catching bands of light and shadow, adding texture, depth, and detail.
Moldings help define architectural style.This is the first encyclopedic collection of molding profiles to be published in modern times.
Nalla Wollen, president of Center Lumber, organizes the 2,500 fullscale drawings according to function and style.
She includes dimensions for woodworkers and carpenters, along with style notes for architects, decorators, and homeowners.
Photographs of houses and interiors show how to combine moldings; technical notes explain how moldings are ordered, made, and installed.
