Online source for baseboard molding
I have some baseboard in my house I need to match.
Anyone have an online source I could look at photos and styles to see what I have?

Lumberyards and mayne even big box stores have printed molding profiles for stock or standard moldings. If you have something old or special, it will likely have to be custom made.

Check with a millworks if there is one near you....

I am not sure where you are located but I ended up buying my moulding from a distributor of El & El

Check out, site for Johnson Brothers. They have a catalogue of profiles you can view on line. Although they list the profiles with numbers with "jb" prefixes, they pretty much are the industry standard "wm" prefix profiles. Wherever you look, you will see profiles listed by a number such as "wm275" . The wm is the industry wide design specs for that profile as set by the Wood Moulding and Millwork Producers Association, so that in theory every manufacturers "wm275" is identical. I say "in theory", because even mouldings from different manufacturing runs of the same supplier will vary slightly, depending on the particular set of knives used for the run.

The big boxes usually have tear off sheets hanging on the moulding isles that you can take, and most lumber yards will have an in house catalogue of the standard wm profiles.

Take note that even if you find the profile at a big box, the thickness of the stock will most likely be thinner than the same profile from a lumber yard or mill supplier.

There are also lots of profiles in older buildings that were manufactured by local or regional millwork producers that had their own "in house" profiles but are no longer in business.
