Have no idea what this moulding is called, or where to get it.


Hi all,
I'm installing 12 doors on a reno. The owners have run into a major problem, and I'm trying to help them, but at a loss right now. They got pre-hung, mahogany doors. The jambs are pretty fancy, and the trims around them slip into a pocket on the jambs. Essentially you can install them without nails, gluing it all together making the jamb and trim one piece. I still use my finishing nails to tack them in place while the glue dries.

They are missing like 15 pieces of the trims. 6 doors. I asked them to bring everything for these doors right away, had they done that, I could have counted before installing half of them. I'm glad I decided to install the trims on the outsides of the rooms first.

The place they purchased this from has gone out of business, and I don't even know who makes this.

I can possibly make them myself, but they are fairly trick, and have a peice of metal/alluminum reinforcement in the jamb. Yea, so replicating this could get very expensive.

I tried to find a piece of scrap to take a picture, but they cleaned up and threw it all away. I took out a piece yesterday (thank god it was only nail tacked in), but after sweating in a 103F house, I just wanted to go home and forgot to take a pic. I will do that tonight.

This is what I found online that sort of looks like what I am talking about, but not exactly, and spacva doesn't find anything for me.

Thanks in advance.

Check for indentifying stamps or marks on the back of the trim or frames.

That is the first thing I did. It shocks me that there is absolutely no sort of marking. Picture comming up shortly. Thanks

First Pic: Note that its an L peice.


Second Pic: Another Pic


Third Pic: Note how it goes into the Jamp, pic is sideways


Fourth Pic: Another Pic, trim going into jamb.


Fifth Pic: Trim inserted all the way. Note that you need to visualize these turned 90 deg clockwise.


I need to know what these are called, and hopefully a manufacturer of this system. I am trying to find trim that is identical. Thanks in advance.

It looks like the cap molding you would use if you had wainscotting on the walls. It would cap the cut edge and provide a chair rail all in one piece. This would be used with 1/4" thick wainscotting.

this is not wainscotting though. This is the trim, part of a system that came with these prehung doors. Anyone know of any places that make this. Thanks.

Bring these pictures and a sample to local lumber yards. Or have the homeowners do it.

It may be a composite of several WM types

I suggest you ask this question at Contractor talk Contractor Talk - Professional Construction and Remodeling Forum

That is a sister site with a finish carpentry forum---I'm not sure if a newbie can post pictures--Ask.

I did. It's like a damn mystery as to where to get these. I managed to find something similar at a lumber clearing house, but they are flat. The guy is willing to give me all the stuff for free, as he doesn't even know what its for, or where to get it, plus I buy a ton from him.

Either way, it seems that I will either have to make these myself (glue on the lip though), or rip out the current stuff and replace it all with the flat trim. The flat trim looks plain as hell though, makes the doors look cheap.

If anyone else has any suggestions please post up. Thanks again for all your help. I will let you know the outcome.

I will give this a shot. I hope someone answers quick though, I am slowing myself down with this BS. Thanks.
