Some of the best hand-finished length moulding you can buy which is also the Achilles heal of the company....hand-finished. You will get samples that have caveats printed on labels on the back saying you should expect variations in the finish. Believe them. Don't expect to get the exact same finish twice, and when ordering short lengths be sure to specify that the finishes should match. They have great customer service, so if you do have finish issues you will get resolution. If you are ordering chop you should have no problems at all.

Love their mouldings ... terrific service ... now, if only I could figure out how to join the Corso (#9079, 9052, 9010, etc.) .....


How do you hold a round moulding in a vise?
Yes, I tried making doodads to raise the outer clamp ....

Let's form that as a question instead of a statement .... How do you hold a round moulding in a vise? Yes, I tried making doodads to raise the outer clamp .... no luck. Does anyone have a solution?

Mouldings that won't go into a vise easily, or at all, either A)don't get put on the wall or B) get ordered cut and joined. If the customer wants it bad enough, they will pay the extra for it's "uniqueness".

I like their selection, but their rep kind of ticked me off last time he was in. Before I started at my store, he sent a bunch of mouldings which never got put on the wall (like I have space for them ;) . I did, however, put up one of the framed samples they sent my manager. He came in, saw it hanging on my wall, and said he'd rather see the samples he sent up instead of the framed sample. I know it's his job to see that the samples are up, but it was in the way he said it. I played it off that I didn't know he had sent them because they weren't ordered while I was there. But, the framed sample did sell.
