"Nice, your are on your way.  Either have it custom milled or check all the inside of your closets and unused areas of your basement that may have also have the top moulding detail.  Depending on the owner, we remove the top crown from…"

"Yeah, they were great. Cost a lot less then I thought it would. They told me they had over 1200 profiles they compiled over the years. I'm sure I'll be going back for different stuff in the future."

"I am glad that it worked out for you.  Not only does this help you, but old house owners using local custom mills is what will keep them in business."

"Just an update... I found a mill in the area that had the profile. They didn't have enough on hand so I had what I needed run off. Also got enough for future projects. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction."

"No, the $100 per inch was only for the part that needed to be cut, if that makes sense.  I believe that it was 2 inches on a 5.5" casing, and they ran it in the center of the board to create the profile.  An equivalent for you would…"

"Thanks for the info.... Was the 100/inch just the height of the trim? I'll search around, I need a substantial amount for two rooms, 5 doors/windows and 2 large sections for a window and entryway. It's funny, the PO only painted the…"
