How to make an exact-match replacement molding
This is the top half of a secretary. It was damaged in a move which happens all the time. Moving damage is one of our most commonly needed services. At Classic, we can put nearly anything back together. In this particular case, not only was the pediment molding broken, but an entire section of it was lost. That's really not a problem though, because we make missing pieces of furniture all the time. Once we're done, you'd never know there was ever any damage.
There are many different processes to create missing molding. It generally varies by scenario, so every time it's a "case by case" basis. For this pediment molding, we used a table saw for 80% of the task. Have a look at these photos to see how it was done!
