:: WOOD MOLDINGS ::


Wood moldings are usually installed to create an attractive finished look or to hide flaws in the joints of where walls meet floors, ceilings, windows and doors.  Wood moldings also act as a barrier to direct water away from the window top and to stop the door swinging in the door frame.

Tools you will need to install your wood moldings

If you are just installing a couple of wood moldings, you will probably get away with just using a miter box, a fine tooth cross cut saw (for the general cuts), a coping saw (if you need to cut scribed ends), your trusty measuring tape, some caulk to match up the sawn ends, hammer and nails to install the wood moldings and probably some sandpaper to tidy up the sawn ends for a neat finish.  A nail punch is also essential in the installation stage if you don't want to leave dent marks on the molding as you hammer the nails in.  If you are dealing with a whole lot of wood moldings to install, then a power miter saw is a real godsend.  

Porter-Cable 12
Porter-Cable Model #3802L features a heavy-duty 15 amp, 3500 RPM motor for maximum cutting power. Includes bright twin lasers that clearly indicate line of cut on both sides of the blade kerf during operation or at rest.  Porter-Cable 12'' Compound Miter Saw with Lasers

Tips when installing wood moldings

  • If you are going to install wood moldings that you intend to stain or paint, you will need to do that BEFORE you install them.  Then all you need to do is to tidy up the edges with a paint brush.
  • Find out where the studs are on the wall (if installing wall wood moldings) and mark them out so you know where to nail the wood moldings.  A stud finder is a boon in these instances.
  • When nailing, do not try to nail flush with the wood molding, you will inevitably dent the molding.  Hammer till the nails are slightly protruding and then use a nail punch to finish off.
  • Your wood moldings will define all the corners and add that finishing touch to a job well done.
