Looking to imitate the woodwork in these old homes


Check out the paper doll spandrel and paper doll woodwork under the eve in this photo. I want to do something like this (have a simple block of wood that repeated a bunch) but I don't have the equipment to do it very quickly myself. Does anyone know of any companies that do this sort of thing? I only find companies that do spandrel or running trim that is a solid piece of wood.

i bet those were beautiful at one time =(

have you looked around for restoration firms or woodworkers or even some restoration websites? you might also be able to find that type of thing new, although i wouldn't know where to begin.
