Thanks, I took the MDF back, saw some composite wood trim, but I assume its the same as MDF. I am still looking for some nice detail wood trim. The home centers don't have much choices to pick from.

Anyone know where I can get some wood door casing trim in NY area? I am looking for something with details. Thanks, Home centers don't have any. No mill shops around here.

Have you tried at a builder's supply place? how about online searched? Look into any local trade mags or flyers in your area...That's about the best I can do for you out in NY....

Thanks guys, I found some nice 3 inc mouldings with nice details, popular wood for $1.20 a foot which I think isn't to bad.
