making your own base moulding


That's going to come in handy when I need to duplicate missing antique moldings---

Your system is similar to that of plaster work---

I've always been a fan of Bondo. Believe it has many, many uses besides auto body repair. I consider it to be the thinking mans duct tape.
With regard to replacing missing antique plaster moldings, I watched my neighbor one time take a piece of sheet metal, cut and file it into the pattern of the molding. Then he put plaster in a line where the molding was missing and ran his profile from one existing piece of molding to the other. He said that was how the old time plasterers did it.
